Pancake recipe for Shrove Tuesday

Here is a savoury choice instead of the sweet varieties of pancake often eaten on Shrove Tuesday. It is a Moroccan themed meal.

150g of plain gluten free flour mix

75g of maize flour

500ml lactose free milk

Salt to taste.

Spinach (1 bag)

1 flat spoon of Moroccan spice mix (check for fodmaps)

1 teaspoon of oil

Juice of 1 lemon

Salt

Topping

6 carrots

Handful of coriander leaves

Salt

2 cooked chicken breasts

Method

Mix all the pancake ingredients together till smooth

Leave in the fridge of at least 2 hours

Fry thin discs of the batter in a frying pan.

Filling

Wilt the spinach in boiling water.

Fry the spice in the oil to release the flavour and add the lemon juice and salt.

Drain the spinach in a colander and blend with the spice mix in a blender.

Topping

Slice and cook the carrot till soft.

Drain and add coriander leaves and salt to taste

Blend till smooth.

Making up the pancakes:

Take a pancake and add some spinach, lay on the top sliced cooked chicken and some of the carrot mix.

Wrap the pancake up and add to a heatproof dish.

Repeat till the dish is full and spread the rest of the pureed carrot on the top.

Warm through and serve with a small amount of pomegranate seeds and alfalfa leaves.
