I'm always looking for healthy food options and one morning I was looking out the window and noticed our bounty of Red Clover. I remembered always picking and eating it as a child. The clover smells so sweet, so surely, there must something you make to eat with it. So I took to the Internet, it had to be something my family would actually eat. They're pretty fussy when it comes to me ripping weeds out of the yard for their dinner.
In researching red clover I found this powerful herb is packed with vitamins A, B, C and also contains calcium, magnesium, potassium and selenium. Red clover is a great source of protein, fat, as well as fiber.
I found this recipe from "Simply Beyond Herbs" So, I thought I'd try it. So simple and uses only 3 ingredients.
Red Clover Pancakes:
One large banana
A handful of plucked purple petals
You will need a frying pan and your favorite oil. We used Olive oil.
Mash the banana then add in the 2 eggs, stir well. Blend in the clover. Drop into hot oil 2 TBSP at a time. They are difficult to turn if you make them any larger.
They looked so good, I put them on a plate. (Without the clover garnish I didn't want to give away how they were made) and took them out to the family. They were a hit, a BIG hit! Even my granddaughter wanted me to make them again the next morning. When I told my husband the pancakes were made from clover. He was silent for a moment and then said, "Not too bad...not too bad at all"
