Healthy Breakfast recipe for your Weekend Moods!

Weekend breakfasts can be hard to get right. Smoothies are healthy, but can leave you feeling a little underwhelmed. A big stack of pancakes satisfies—but can also feel like a gut bomb. You need to strike a balance.

These savory, crispy pancakes—made with chickpeas, squash, and leeks—are light, flavorful, and just right.



  1. 6 tablespoons olive oil

  2. 1 medium leek, white and pale-green parts only

  3. chopped 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  4. Freshly ground black pepper

  5. 1 cup grated peeled squash (such as butternut or kabocha)

  6. 3/4 cup chickpea flour

  7. 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

  8. 1/2 cup plain yogurt 1/4 cup

  9. coarsely chopped fresh parsley


  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet, preferably nonstick, over medium-high.

  • Add leek, season with kosher salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until leek is softened and starting to brown, about 4 minutes.

  • Add squash and season again.

  • Cook, stirring often, until squash is cooked through and softened, about 4 minutes.

  • Transfer vegetables to a plate and let cool.

  • Wipe out skillet and reserve. Meanwhile, whisk chickpea flour, baking powder, 1 tablespoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/2 cup water in a medium bowl; season with pepper and let sit 5 minutes for flour to hydrate.

  • Stir vegetables into batter just to coat.

  • Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in reserved skillet over medium-high. Add batter by the 1/4-cupful to make 4 pancakes, gently flattening to about 1/4" thick. Batter should spread easily—if it doesn't, thin with a little water.

  • Cook until bottoms are lightly browned and bubbles form on top, about 4 minutes. Use a spatula to carefully flip pancakes over and cook until browned and cooked through, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a plate and tent with a sheet of foil to keep warm.

  • Repeat with another 1 1/2 tablespoons oil and remaining batter. Serve pancakes topped with yogurt, parsley, sea salt, and pepper.
