Award-winning chef and author of A Modern Way to Eat and A Modern Way to Cook, Anna Jones has shared her perfect pancake recipe incorporating products from Rude Health. These pancakes are ideal if you're looking for a healthy alternative and they're completely vegan!
Anna says: “I love these pancakes. I eat them straight out of the pan like traditional pancakes topped with a fried egg, some flash fried vegetables and cheese. Or I keep them in the fridge, heat them up gently in a pan and use them like wraps or instead of chapatis for dipping into curries. I’ve included some topping ideas below.”
GREEN CHICKPEA PANCAKES
Makes 12 pancakes, Preparation time 20-25 minutes, Cooking time 5-10 minutes
• 250g/9oz chickpea flour
• 350ml/12fl oz Rude Health Oat Milk
• 50g/2oz ready prepared spinach
• A small bunch of fresh parsley
• Zest of 1 lemon
• Salt and freshly ground black pepper
• Coconut oil or groundnut oil, for cooking
• Replace the spinach with 1 x medium grated beetroot or 1 x medium grated carrot
Add all the ingredients to a blender (except the oil) and season well with salt and freshly ground pepper. Blend on high until the mixture is a thin smooth pancake batter.
Heat 1 tsp of the oil in a medium-sized non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add a small ladle of the batter to the frying pan. Working quickly swirling it around so the batter covers the base of the pan and cook for a couple of minutes, then flip over and cook on the other side for another 30 seconds.
Repeat for the rest of the batter, adding a little more of the oil each time. Stack on a plate with greaseproof in between each one and keep warm in a low oven.
