Ingredients

For caramelised walnuts

60g walnut halves

100g Siúcra Light Golden Brown Sugar 

For the filling

1 leek, sliced

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 red pepper, thinly diced

1 tsp chopped thyme

60ml vegetable stock

2 large leaves of kale, shredded

4 tbsp cream

Pinch nutmeg

For the pancakes

250g plain flour

2 tbsp. Siúcra Caster Sugar

A small handful of baby spinach, finely shredded

A pinch of paprika

2 eggs

350ml milk                     

3 to 4 tbsp water, if the batter is too thick

50g feta cheese, crumbled, to garnish

Sprigs of thyme, to garnish 

Method

To make the caramelised walnuts

  1. Line a baking tray with parchment and brush lightly with a non-scented oil. Place the walnut halves onto the parchment paper.
  2. Pour the Siúcra Caster Sugar into a non-stick saucepan and heat until just amber in colour. Pour the caramelised sugar over the walnuts and leave to set.

To prepare the filling

  1. Heat a saucepan with some oil and sauté the leek for 6 minutes until softened but not browned. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add the red pepper, thyme, stock and cook for a further 3 minutes before adding the shredded kale and nutmeg. Simmer for about 2 minutes before pouring in the cream. Set aside until the pancakes are cooked.   

To prepare the pancakes

  1. Combine the plain flour, Siúcra Caster Sugar and spinach in a bowl. Add a pinch of paprika. Beat together the eggs and milk and slowly whisk into the flour mix. Pour into a jug.
  2. When ready to cook, heat the frying pan and add a little butter and oil, give the batter a quick stir and then pour just enough into the pan to make a large size pancake.
  3. Cook for about 1½ minutes and then turn onto the other side, cooking for about ½ minute until golden and cooked.
  4. Place on a clean plate continuing to finish all the batter. Place sheets of parchment into between the pancakes to prevent them from sticking.

To serve

  1. Place a pancake on the plate, spoon in the filling on one half and fold the other half over.
  2. Serve 2 pancakes per person and crumble the feta over the top as well as some caramelized walnuts. Garnish with sprigs of thyme.
