With pancake day upon us I wanted to create a slightly different recipe to the type of pancakes I normally eat. I already have plenty of sweet pancake recipes on my website so I thought it was time I created a savoury version.

My spinach pancakes are egg and dairy free meaning they are vegan friendly and each serving contains one portion of spinach so they are a clever way of tricking kids into eating vegetables. Plus they are bright green so this will either be incredibly off-putting OR incredibly fun to eat depending on the individual.

I have listed aquafaba as an ingredient, this is basically the liquid out of the tin of chickpeas, as it makes a great egg substitute. I normally just pour the liquid into a jug and then pop the tin of chickpeas into the fridge and use them later on that day, have a look at my Creamy Chickpea Curry recipe or my Moroccan Inspired Quinoa Traybake if you need some inspiration on how to use them up!

I love these pancakes topped with creamy garlic mushrooms! I am happy to get the recipe for this written up but it is basically just mushrooms and garlic sautéed in dairy free butter before adding one teaspoon of gluten free flour and milk to form a roux. Then season with salt and pepper to taste, easy peasy!

Ingredients

metric
imperial
  • 200g 1 + 1/4 cups gluten free self raising flour
  • 200ml 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp soya milk (unsweetened)
  • 50ml 1/4 cup aquafaba
  • 2 handfuls spinach
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil or butter of your choice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Method

  1. Place the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl
  2. Pour the aquafaba and milk into a blender or food processor along with the spinach, blitz until a smooth liquid is formed with no trace of the spinach leaves remaining
  3. Pour the liquid into the flour and mix well until a smooth batter is formed
  4. Heat some oil or butter in a pan and, once melted, pour in the batter to form a series of small pancakes
  5. Cook over a moderate heat for a few minutes before flipping
  6. Once the pancakes have lightly browned all over, serve topped with whatever you want!
