Author: Louise-Claire Cayzer
1Tbsground flaxseed mixed with 1 Tbs water
Extra water as needed to create a batter.
Mushroom & Spinach with Garlic
1bunch spinach leaves, chopped.
10chestnut mushrooms sliced.
Micro Greens to sprinkle
For the Vegetables
Start by roasting the peppers under the grill until the skin is blistered and blackend. Once done, pop them in a bowl covered by a teatowel to steam. Then, deseed, remove the blackened skin and chop into ribbons. Add the balsamic and olive oil and mix.
Whilst the peppers are grilling, sweat the mushrooms with the garlic in a pan with the olive oil.
Add the spinach, marigold stock and wine, clamp on the lid and let the spinach wilt.
Take off the heat whilst you make the pancakes.
For the Pancakes
Mix the chickpea flour with the flax seed mixture and a pinch of salt
Add water and stir until you have a smooth pancake batter. I found that I needed a bit more water than I first anticipated in order for the batter to become smooth and pourable.
Cook the pancakes in the usual way- you might need to use a spatula to encourage the batter to spread thinly.
Keep warm until you've made a batch then top with the fillings, sprinkle with the micro greens and apply to face.
