We were watching the Grimm the other day, season 2, episode 14. During this episode, Monroe is trying to serve Nick a delicious, healthy breakfast. Nick hears about the syrup and truly isn’t interested in even trying it, and decides to pass. It’s sort of a breakfast, that wasn’t.
When we heard about the spinach-walnut-basil-maple syrup, we looked at each other and then tried to find the recipe online. It simply doesn’t exist!!! So, Naomi began to experiment in the kitchen and created it herself! Wow – and double Wow. This is one breakfast/recipe you won’t want to miss – your tastebuds will THANK you.
Doesn’t this breakfast look good?
If you could only taste the sinfully delicious ingredients, you’d never want simple maple syrup again!
The pancakes are made with quinoa. Truly light and fluffy. The syprup is green because of the spinach, and a little crunchy because we left the walnuts in little pieces. The basil gave the syrup a delightful almost licorice flavor – and the maple is the background upon which all these flavors are thrown for effect. Try it! You just may like it.
