Cook up Jamie's spinach pancake for your Sunday brunch



Instructions for Jamie Oliver's Super Spinach Pancake recipe

Step 1

Halve, destone, peel and finely slice the avocado and quarter the tomatoes, then place in a salad bowl with a quarter of the spinach. Trim, finely slice and add the spring onions and the coriander leaves, then squeeze over the lime juice.

Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, season to perfection with sea salt and black pepper, toss to coat and put aside.

Step 2

Crack the egg into a blender, add the flour, milk, remaining spinach and a pinch of salt and pepper, then blitz until smooth.

Place a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat, rub the pan with a little olive oil, then pour in a thin layer of batter, swirling it up and around the edges. Cook on one side only for 2 minutes, or until lightly golden, then stack up on a serving plate and repeat.

Step 3

Top each pancake with dollops of cottage cheese, the avocado salad, and a few good shakes of chilli sauce. It's really nice served with extra lime wedges for squeezing over, and a fried egg on top, if you fancy.


Instead of spinach, you could use a mixture of soft herbs, such as parsley, mint, basil or tarragon – whatever you like!
