  • 3 1/2 fl oz milk or oat milk, plus extra if needed
  • 4 1/2 ounces spelt flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons butter

  • Put garlic, coriander, spinach, cumin and cardamom in a blender and blitz to a smooth green paste. Add a splash of the milk or oat milk to loosen if needed
  • Add flour to a large mixing bowl and create a well, then add eggs, slowly whisking them into the flour. Add a pinch of salt and stir, then gradually add milk, followed by the green paste, and whisk to combine. Leave to rest for 20 minutes at room temperature.
  • Put all topping ingredients in a mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper, and stir to combine.
  • Melt butter in an 8-inch non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, whisk the batter, then ladle 4 Tbsp into the pan. Cook 2 minutes, then flip and cook for a further minute. Transfer to a plate and repeat, serve with the mixed topping.


Store any leftover pancakes in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. The topping is best prepared and served immediately.
