Quinoa and Beet Pancakes

So, I'm still working my way through Good to the Grain.  I bought some Bob's Red Mill quinoa flour and a gigantic beet from the farmer's market and made these pancakes.  Check out how amazing the batter look!

They cook up pretty normally.  Mine were a bit thick.  I couldn't get the beet to puree perfectly in my food processor until I added some of the other wet ingredients.  You might want to use a blender instead.

I made some of my usual adjustments to the recipe, using Egg Beaters for the egg and canola oil instead of butter.  I didn't have yogurt on hand so I used buttermilk in place of the milk and yogurt.

The final product tasted quite beety.  Shirley loved them.
