SPINACH AND CHLORELLA CREPES WITH PICKLED BEETROOT, MINT & CUCUMBER CHUTNEY, AND PINENUT & ROSEMARY FETA

By Olivia Scott from The Raw Kitchen

Makes 8 pancakes

I love these pancakes as a weekend lunch, when I have friends or family coming over and want to create that entertaining, shared dish vibe. Leftovers (if any!) can be stored in the fridge – I love wrapping up with veges inside and eating burrito style for lunch the next day. If you are expecting lots of guests – best to double the batch to ensure there is plenty to go around – second and third helpings are to be expected!

SPINACH AND CHLORELLA CREPES INGREDIENTS
3 cups spinach
1 tsp chlorella powder (optional – could also use greens powder, spirulina or wheatgrass)
2.5 cups water
2 cups chickpea flour
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
1⁄2 cup LSA

METHOD
In a blender, combine 2.5 cups water and 3 cups and spinach and blend until puree. Add chickpea flour, olive oil and sea salt and blend further until smooth. Lastly, add in LSA and blend.
Place a frypan on medium heat and add 3 tbsp olive oil to war. Pour 1⁄2 cup of mixture into the centre of the frypan and tilt the frypan in a circular motion so that it
spreads to the edges and forms a circle. Leave the pancake to fry 5 minutes and then flip to the other side for another 3-5 minutes. Place the pancakes on a piece of paper towel to absorb excess oil and set aside.
Serve with pesto, vegetables, tempeh, sauerkraut, or the below condiments.
