Easy Gluten-Free Banana Pancakes

I don't know if I'd call these banana pancakes or banana crepes, but either way this make a delicious and very easy breakfast. The pancakes are a little difficult to flip since they're much more delicate than a pancake made with flour. The smaller you make these, the easier this will be. I accidentally overcooked mine, hence the slightly too brown picture, but they still tasted great. I topped mine with honey but they are just as good plain or with maple syrup. In the version picture I did not use baking powder. This recipe makes breakfast for one person.

Roasted Eggplant, Tomato and Cucumber Salad

recently discovered this salad through a friend. I told her I wanted to make a new and exciting salad and she immediately recommended this. Thank goodness for friends with good taste in food! This is currently my favorite food. I've made this salad multiple times over the past 2 months and everyone who has tried it loves it. The flavors are fresh and and exciting and the herb dressing and yogurt sauce combined make the perfect accompaniment to the vegetables.

You can play around with how spicy you make it based on how many serrano peppers you use. This salad is very filling and can be served as a light main course. I love pairing this with some freshly baked za'atar flatbread. It's my perfect summer dinner. If you are against using your oven during the summer, you can also fry or saute the eggplant. Sauteing work, but the end result is a little messier looking. The taste will still be wonderful. This salad make great leftovers too, so even if it's just 2 of you eating this, go ahead and make the full recipe. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
