These spinach pancakes are so tasty despite being nutrient dense. With pancake day upon us I wanted to create a slightly different recipe to the type of pancakes I normally eat. I already have plenty of sweet pancake recipes on my website so I thought it was time I created a savoury version.

My spinach pancakes are egg and dairy free meaning they are vegan friendly and each serving contains one portion of spinach so they are a clever way of tricking kids into eating vegetables. Plus they are bright green so this will either be incredibly off-putting OR incredibly fun to eat depending on the individual.

I have listed aquafaba as an ingredient, this is basically the liquid out of the tin of chickpeas, as it makes a great egg substitute. I normally just pour the liquid into a jug and then pop the tin of chickpeas into the fridge and use them later on that day, have a look at my Creamy Chickpea Curry recipe or my Moroccan Inspired Quinoa Traybake if you need some inspiration on how to use them up!

I love these pancakes topped with creamy garlic mushrooms! I am happy to get the recipe for this written up but it is basically just mushrooms and garlic sautΓ©ed in dairy free butter before adding one teaspoon of gluten free flour and milk to form a roux. Then season with salt and pepper to taste, easy peasy!
