Veg filled pancake wrap

Okay, it’s a rubbish title, but a tasty, quick, colourful and healthy food!

I’m calling it a pancake wrap, as it really is part way between the two, it’s made out of a batter, but is a bit more substantial than a pancake!

The pancake wrap holds together well, and the filling is full of the tastes of summer! Sweet carrot, peppery rocket, bright tomatoes,crunchy celery, creamy avocado.. the tangy dressing really lifts the wrap and pulls the flavours together.


I’m using a mix of flours for the wrap but a pre-mixed gluten free plain flour should work in the same way.

The side I’m serving it with is our crispy potatoes to make a really filling meal.

Serves 2.


For the pancake wrap

50g potato flour

40g brown rice flour

10g tapioca flour

100ml water

1tsp oil (I used sunflower)

Half a teaspoon dried tarragon (not essential but very tasty)

Pinch of salt

For the veg

1 carrot scrubbed and cut into strips with a vegetable peeler

Large handful of Rocket

1 celery stick chopped

1 tomato sliced

Half an avocado sliced

About 2 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves

For the dressing

1tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Juice of half a lime

1 teaspoon cider vinegar

Pinch of salt

Heat a frying pan.

Mix together all the dry ingredients for the pancake wrap, so the flours are incorporated with each other, then whisk in the wet ingredients. Pour half of the mix into the hot pan and swirl round quickly to cover as much of the pan as possible, cook till the top looks dry then flip and cook for another couple of minutes.

Whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing.

Plate up by piling the veg onto the pancake wrap, then drizzle over the dressing and roll up for eating!

Oat pancakes

To go with these sweet potato hash browns, I fancied a go at making something a bit like a Staffordshire oat cake, this recipe mainly differs in that it is using a far lower proportion of oats, it makes a hearty, filling pancake that is great for topping with other breakfast goodies… I made 4 great big pancakes but it would make a dozen small ones quite easily.

it doesn’t come accross. in the picture but these were about the size of my large frying pan!
