This easy breakfast is full of awesome stuff. Spinach, cooked quinoa and chickpea flour. Add up spices of choices and fill it up with anything, grilled veggies or a potato hash or just serve as is.

Makes 3 7 inch pancakes . Easily doubled
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1/2 cup lightly packed spinach
2 Tbsp packed cilantro
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1 Tbsp flaxmeal
1 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp each of garlic powder, mustard powder, cumin powder, cayenne powder
a generous pinch of kala namak (black salt)
2 tsp nutritional yeast (optional)
1/2 tsp baking powder

Put everything till lemon juice in a blender and blend until smooth. Add in the onion to the batter. Add other finely chopped veggies or bell peppers to the batter if you like.
Heat a thick bottom girdle at medium heat. When hot, grease with a little oil. Add a 1/2 cup of the batter to the pan. Spread by tilting the pan to all sides. 
Cook 5-7 minutes or until golden, then flip and cook for another 5-6 minutes. 
Serve hot as is, or with ketchup, Sriracha, ranch dressing or other dressing of choice and with roasted veggies or potatoes. I filled mine with potato and bell pepper with indian spices.

Variations: Add other greens. Or remove the greens from the batter and saute and use as filling. You can also use cooked millet or other grains in the batter.
