This is my first time trying to attempt a recipe post - not that I want to (or ever could) take over Neslihan's beautiful "Kitchen Heals Soul" but I've been trying out some new kitchen tools and had this idea to share my thoughts on it combined with a quick and super easy breakfast recipe called Oat Banana Pancake. This is the perfect breakfast for you if you normally don't have much time in the morning but don't want to pass on healthy eating. All you need are three basic ingredients!
Ingredients for the pancakes
(serves approx. 3)
1/3 Cup of Oats (or your favorite granola/muesli)
Take a wire whip and blend everything together. If you want a more powdery version, then use a blender. I'm using a wire whip because I like my pancakes a little crunchy. The second step is to cook them in a regular fry pan.
optional ingredients/toppings: blueberries, raspberries, maple syrup - simply add whatever pleases you. I sometimes put some fresh pomegranate seeds on top of my pancakes..
The pink knife you see in the pictures above is a KAI Pure Komachi Knife. I've been testing a set of three Komachi knives and tried to cook more often. I really enjoyed experimenting with new kitchen tools although I don't consider myself a passionate cook.
What I especially love about these knives is their super lightweight structure. That's the reason why my hand never felt tired while cutting. I also appreciate their non-stick surface, which makes cutting vegetables less annoying. I've been testing their performance with various vegetables, fruits and breads - I must say that the bread and vegetable knives are my favorites. And this might be just a side issue, but you have to love the color-coding, which makes it easy to choose the right knife for each step.
Pink: Vegetable Knife no. 5723
Blue: Chef's Knife no. 5706
Purple: Bread Knife no. 5705
