If you ever think of a real change for a healthy and delicious breakfast, go for this one. It is simple, easy and quick to make. I make pancakes very often but this is the first time I make spinach pancakes and it was going to be for my husband’s breakfast. Wow…it came out so green, beautiful and healthy-looking. While I was making them, thoughts zipped through my mind. Will my husband want to eat this green stuff? To cut the story short, he ate it very quietly. I left it that way. He must be thinking a lot…haha
I also made mango and blueberries muffins for him to take to office for his morning break. He smiled widely when I passed the muffins to him. Then he asked, ‘How did you make the green pancakes? They are very delicious!’ Yeah…that’s it. He’ll get to eat it again! Well, I have yet to try it on my children. I think I have to blindfold them, especially my youngest, before serving her….haha. She won’t want to try something that looks so unusual…GREEN pancakes.
I would like to introduce to you this very delicious feta cheese that’s made from sheep and goat’s milk. I consider it a healthier feta compared to those made from cow’s milk. It is really good mixed with fish or chicken as fillings for pancakes. It is also very delicious crumbled into your salad.
I had a piece of leftover cooked cod from dinner. It was well marinated, pan fried and a little spicy…..very delicious. I broke it up and fried it in the pan for a while to heat it up. In fact you can use any left over meat. You can drizzle chilli sauce over it if you want to spice it up further.
Here is my Spinach Pancake recipe. The amount here made 5 pieces.
2 handfuls of washed spinach leaves
1/4t fine sea salt
1/2C spelt flour (you can use plain flour)
Chop up the spinach leaves into smaller pieces. Put it into a mixing bowl together with the eggs and the salt and blend it with a hand blender. You can use a processor too. But using a hand blender is very convenient. Washing up is easier.
Add flour into the blended spinach. Whisk it well. I prefer to use spelt flour in my cooking. It’s a heathier alternative to normal wheat flour.
Heat up some oil in a frying pan. Add a scoop of the batter into the pan. Spread it out so that it’s thin. Use medium flame. When the top almost dries up, flip over. Let it cook for a while and dish up onto a clean plate.
When all the pancakes are cooked, add the filling. Add some of the fish and feta cheese. Roll up and place it on a plate. Add some spinach leaves and tomatoes to serve together with it. You can use other types of salad, too. It’s REALLY delicious. I will make it very often. It’s such a healthy and nutritious breakfast. You can go wild with the filling.
You can make more of these pancakes and keep them in the fridge. Heat up in the frying pan for a while before adding the filling, whenever you feel like having one.
Just a thought here. Don’t you like the green colour? I find it most refreshing to the eyes and to the mind. When I was young, I always remember hearing adults talked about looking at green trees in the morning after you get up from bed. They said this will help to improve astigmatism. Apparently some were cured. Now this is just what I heard. It’s not a proven cure. You can try it out if you are suffering from astigmatism. Who knows it may help. There’s no harm to it anyway. I think looking at green trees helps to relax the eyes which would be good even for healthy eyes.
Now it’s your turn……GO HEALTHY……. with this delicious, healthy spinach pancake rolls.
