Vegan Pancakes
Ingredients:
2 cups spelt flour
2 cups oat flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 ½ cups low-fat vanilla soymilk
1/4 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1 ½ tablespoons vanilla extract
2 cups blueberries

Directions:
Whisk spelt flour, oat flour, baking powder, flaxseed meal, and salt together in a large mixing bowl.
Stir soy milk, applesauce, agave nectar, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl.

Form a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour soy milk mixture into the well. Stir until the ingredients are just moistened; set aside for 15 minutes.

Lightly oil and heat a griddle to medium heat.

Spoon batter onto hot griddle, sprinkle blueberries onto wet batter, and cook until bubbles form, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes more.

Good journalism Ms. Herman. I would point out that lacto-vegetarianism did not evolve in India, but was the precursor to the other forms. As you say, ahimsa is the reason behind vegetarianism. According to the Vedic literatures, the cow is considered one of the 7 mothers of society. This is because milk contains animal fat that is available to humans without killing an animal. This is also the principal behind the “sacred cow”. Thanks

audi – any of the above. Use what you like. Other good options include chicken broth, ginger ale, or white grape juice.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
