Spinach pancakes

We don’t know how Dr. Seuss’s green eggs and ham tasted, but we can promise you that these crazy looking green rolls are full of flavour and are super light and healthy to boot! You can use any pancake recipe you like and just add a large handful of spinach for the colour but here is a slightly lighter and healthier recipe we like, enjoy!

Ingredients for six large pancakes:

250g of white flour

300ml water and 300ml soya milk (use any milk you like)

2 eggs

A large handful of spinach

Ingredients for the filling:

A  large handful of fresh spinach

A large handful of chopped mushrooms

Half a chopped onion

2 tablespoons of mixed seeds (optional)




Start with the filling. Put a splash of olive oil into a good pan and gently heat the onion for five minutes until golden. Add the chopped mushroom and spinach and cook for 1 minute with the lid on. They will sweat nicely inside the pan. Leave the lid on and set the pan aside.

Now the pancakes. Mix all of the ingredients except the spinach in a large mixing bowl with a whisk until the mixture is smooth. Now add the spinach to the bowl and use a hand blender to pulverise the spinach. You should now have the magic green mixture!

Now heat a large non-stick frying pan and use olive oil each time you cook a new pancake. Make sure the pan is very hot and use a ladle to spoon in enough mixture, try not to make the pancake too thick as it will be hard to cook and flip! Cook for 1-2 minutes and use a spatula to loosen the edges and when you are ready shake the pancake loose. Now go for a flip (good luck!) and cook the other side. Serve with some of the filling and seeds…Enjoy!
