    OK I found it, sorry new to your blog. Thank you. I made the pancakes, squeezed lemon juice & sweetener on them. Very good, enjoyed them this morning.

    Update: Last time I had no ricotta or tofu on hand - but I did have feta cheese and sour cream! 8 ounces of each. WOW! The sour cream made it so moist and the feta amped up the flavor big time, so it didn't need ANY salt or excess spices. Just liberal basil and oregano. This will be my new way to make this. Blandness issue solved for those who need a big punch of flavor! Also this last time split the difference and used two veggie sausages and a small eggplant, cut into 1/3 inch discs.

    Was really good. I used vegetarian sausages and regular tomatoes, which I will do again. Also steamed fresh spinach from the bag which I prefer. This will be GREAT after I make a few changes/substitutions to kick up the flavor: 3-4 cloves of pressed garlic, instead of powder; more salt and pepper; more tomatoes - 3-4 large and sliced about 1/3 inch thick; same mushrooms but sliced thin; 1 teaspoon (or more?) of Italian seasoning. REALLY GOOD!

    Good flavor but TOO DRY! Needs some kind of sauce. I was looking for something to add to my list of post bariatric surgery foods that I could eat...but due to the dryness, I just can't.
