Spinach Pancakes

20190707_110720

I do love Lazy Sunday Mornings. I pulled back the curtains and the sun was shining again, lovely! I opted for a fueling healthy breakfast this morning, first time I’ve tried Spinach Pancakes and they were lovely.

 

Makes 2 Pancakes

30g Gram Flour (chickpea)

85ml water

Pinch of sea salt

1/2 tsp garlic

2 handfuls of Spinach

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp coconut oil for frying.

 

  1. Add all the ingredients (except the coconut oil) to a blender and mix until smooth. The batter will be watery.                                                                            20190707_105216
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a fry pan on medium heat
  3. Pour a thin layer of the batter into the pan and swirl, when you start to see it bubble, flip over and cook. The pancake is very light so I would toss rather than using utensils to flip over as it might tear.                                                20190707_105924
  4. To serve, I chopped some avocado, feta cheese, tomatoes and topped with poached eggs. Yummy!

20190216_100436

After my recent visit to Ireland and just had to try a proper Irish Potato Cake. They are also known as Fadge or Farl in Northern Ireland and Tattie Scones (potato scones) in Scotland.  These are a traditional breakfast item.

 

Makes about 8

4 potatoes (preferably a starchy potato, such as russet)

3 tbsps plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

Salt & pepper to taste (I use rainbow peppers, more flavour)

1 tsp onion powder

30g melted irish butter

30g irish butter to cook with

 

  1. Cook and mash potatoes, leave to cool
  2. In a bowl mix the potatoes, flour, baking powder, onion powder, melted butter, salt & pepper into a soft dough like ball.                                                                      20190216_092606
  3. Flour a work surface and gently flatten to about 1cm thick
  4. With a 3″ cutter, cut out circles.                                                                    20190216_094013
  5. Heat up a fry pan with the butter or preheat the crisperplate for 2 minutes then add the butter.
  6. Place the potato cakes onto the plate or pan and cook for 3 minutes each side if using a fry pan, or 3 minutes on crisperplate, turn, then a further 2 minutes.                                                                                  20190216_100034
