Happy Pancake Day – whether you are celebrating the once a year Shrove Tuesday pancake day, or having a pancake day at another time of year, here is one of my favourite recipes.
Any Day Healthy Pancakes
A complete meal, suitable for vegetarians and diabetics. If you need to be gluten free, then use gluten free flour to make your pancakes.
The only difference in the batter is a little black pepper if desired.
Once your pancake batter is made, let it rest while you make a savoury filling.
You can use whatever vegetables you choose, selecting different colours and textures to give a nice variety. This is also a great recipe for using up left over cookerd vegetables.
I chose to start with sliced leeks and diced carrots. I sauted these in a little olive oil.
Then I gathered a few vegetables that didn’t need any prior cooking: some leftover cooked peas, a small tin of sweetcorn, a red pepper and a few sticks of celery. I chopped the peper and celery.
Once the carrot and leek were cooked, I added the rest of the vegetables and mixed well. A tub of cream cheese and some grated cheese were added and the mixture mixed really well. Use any cheeses you have avilable in your fridge.
As you make each pancake you can fill and roll it while your next pancake is cooking, making a production line process.
Place the rolled up filled pancakes in an oven proof dish.
Sprinkle over a lottle more grated cheese and then bake for 20 minutes in a preheated – moderate oven: 180 degrees centegrade/ gas 4
I made these ahead of time and allowed them to cool to take them to a pancake party.
