Pumpkin pancakes with beetroot and carrot

Spring is finally here in Australia and pumpkins are still in season, moreover they are available for a decent price. That’s awesome! I decided to take this opportunity and make some pumpkin puree, which I can later use for my kitchen experiments. This time it is a turn for pumpkin pancakes with beetroot and carrot salad. These three flavours combine sensationally. All these vitamins and minerals enclosed in one dish! Pancakes are gluten-free. Instead of wheat flour I’ve used almond flour and arrowroot (can be replaced with tapioca flour). Simply, deliciousness!
