Ditch Plains Green Pancakes

first_imgChef Laird Hamilton by Jennifer Cawley.WHO: Laird Hamilton, author of Fuel Up, published by AssoulineINSTAGRAM: @LairdHamiltonSurfLAIRD’S GUEST-WORTHY RECIPE: Ditch Plains Green PancakesWHY?“My girls and I visit the Hamptons every year for a charity stand-up paddle event and to visit long-time friends in the area. The Ditch Plains pancakes are one of my favorite recipes in my new Assouline cookbook, and they’re obviously relevant to the Montauk area. They are an unusual, savory brunch plate, but are really light and loaded with iron-rich spinach. [Iron] helps make the hemoglobin in our red blood cells that carry oxygen throughout our bodies. It’s ideal for vegetarians and those who avoid gluten as well. The inclusion of a jalapeño pepper and the lemon juice bring a zingy and bright flavor to the start of the day.”INGREDIENTS:For the lemon butter1/4 c raw butter, softened2 tsp grated lemon zest1 tsp minced parsleySea salt and black pepperFor the pancakes5 oz spinach leaves, washed2 Tbsp raw butter, melted3 green onions, finely sliced1 jalapeño pepper, trimmed, seeded, and minced1/2 c gluten-free flour3/4 Tbsp baking powder2 eggs1/2 tsp ground cumin1 c almond milkSea salt and black pepperOlive oil, for the panLemon wedges, for garnishDIRECTIONSFor the lemon butterWhisk together all the ingredients in a small bowl until blended. Place in the freezer to firm up while you prepare the pancakes.For the pancakesPreheat the oven to 200ºF.Heat a little water in a small pan over medium heat.Add the spinach leaves, cover, and cook for just one minute, until the spinach wilts. Place the spinach in a bowl to cool down. Drain the spinach and coarsely chop.Combine the melted raw butter, green onions, jalapeño, and spinach in a mixing bowl. Add the flour, baking powder, eggs, cumin, and almond milk. Season with salt and pepper. Give it a good whisk to combine.Coat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with olive oil. When the pan is hot, pour on several quarter-cup pancakes. Cook about three minutes, until air bubbles form on the surface, then flip them over and give the other sides a couple of minutes. Add a little more oil as the skillet dries out. You can stack the cooked pancakes on a plate and keep them warm in the oven until ready to serve.To serve, place the desired quantity of pancakes on a plate with a teaspoon of lemon butter on top and a lemon wedge on the side.

UIC figures show growth in global rail traffic

first_imgINTERNATIONAL: Statistics from UIC members indicate an average overall growth of 3·4% in freight tonne-km in 2010, confirming economic and trade recovery, as well as a 3·5% increase in passenger-km due in part to rail development in Asia, particularly India.Publishing the figures on July 27, UIC said there was an 8% increase in Russia’s ‘extremely dynamic’ freight sector, which accounts for almost a quarter of world tonne-km. The USA and Canada reported 4% growth and represent more than 25% of total tonnage transported. There was only 3% growth in China, which is responsible for 70% of the total tonnage in Asia & Oceania, but Indian Railways traffic was up 9% and Kazakh Railways 8%. Europe excluding the CIS showed a 7% increase, and UIC said this trend has continued into 2011. Growth in Africa was 1·5%. Passenger-km worldwide remain steady thanks to growth in Asia, particularly India which saw an 8% increase and carried almost half the traffic in Asia, while China only recorded 0·4% growth. Passenger-km in Russia fell 9%, but was stable in Europe and grew by 0·2% in Africa. UIC has around 200 members, operating 1 million km of railway which carries 2·7 billion passenger-km and 9 billion tonne-km of freight a year.last_img read more
