turmeric pancakes with sweet chilly sauce method

  1. To make the turmeric pancake batter, combine rice flour, turmeric powder, coconut cream and water. Whisk together and set aside to rest.
  2. To make the sweet chilli sauce, add water, vinegar, coconut sugar, tamari and beetroot powder (if you're using this) to a small pot, and bring to a gentle simmer. Then add the chopped garlic and chilli, whilst whisking to dissolve the sugar. Simmer for 5-10 minutes to let flavours infuse.
  3. Mix together tapioca flour and water in a small dish and add to sauce to thicken. Remove from heat and let cool.
  4. Prepare veggies and arrange on a plate ready for serving.
  5. Heat a medium sized pan on high heat, once smoking hot, add coconut oil and pour in a ¼ cup of the pancake mix, swirling the pan to cover the entire base. Small bubbles will appear and create a lace-like appearance. Once pancake is cooked on top and crispy on the bottom slide onto a plate then repeat with remaining pancake mix.
  6. To serve, fill the turmeric pancake with a selection of fresh veggies, sauerkraut and a sprinkle of activated seed mix. Finish with a generous drizzle of sweet chilli sauce.
