Serves 2

Preparation time 10 minutes plus min of 1 hour resting time (or overnight in the fridge)

Cooking time 20 minutes

Ingredients for the Buckwheat Pancakes:

140g of Buckwheat flour

300ml of Plenish Oat Milk 

1/4 tsp yeast

a pinch of sugar 

2 tsp olive oil 

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp of salt 

Ingredients for the Spinach and Leek Bechamel filling:

15g flour (gluten-free if preferred)

15ml plus a few extra tablespoons of olive oil for frying

400ml Plenish Oat Milk

500g spinach 

2 leeks, trimmed and finely sliced in rounds  

2 tbsp of nutritional yeast 

50ml of cashew cream (optional)

1 tsp English mustard 

1 tbsp white miso

A good grating of nutmeg

Zest of a quarter of a lemon

1/4 tsp of celery salt 

1/2 tsp sea salt flakes

Freshly ground black pepper 

 

How to Make the Buckwheat Pancake Batter:

1. Pour 300ml of Plenish Oat Milk into a small saucepan and allow to warm up over a low flame until it’s just above room temperature. 

2. Add the yeast and sugar into the milk and set aside for 15-20 minutes to allow the yeast to activate. You will know it’s activated when you see bubbles rising to the surface. 

3. Add the buckwheat flour, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, baking powder, salt to a large bowl and mix together with a whisk. 

4. Pour in the yeasted Plenish oat milk and whisk together until to a smooth batter. 

5. Leave to rest for at least 1 hour, or to develop a deeper flavour, overnight in the fridge. 

How to Make the Leek, Spinach and Bechamel Pancake Filling:

1. Begin by wilting down the spinach in a pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil over high heat. Then remove from the pan and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. 

2. In a clean pan, heat a couple more tablespoons of oil and sweat the leeks for 4-5 minutes until soft. Remove from the pan and set aside.

3. To make the bechamel, heat 15ml of olive oil and add the plain flour. Allow the flour to cook out for a minute or two and then slowly pour in the Plenish Oat Milk, whisking as you go to create a smooth sauce. 

4. Then whisk through the nutritional yeast, English mustard, miso, and cashew cream if you are using it. Grate in nutmeg, lemon zest, and season with celery salt, sea salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Allow to thicken up over medium-high heat until it becomes a thick sauce. 

5. Turn off the heat and stir the sauce through the spinach and leeks until well combined. 

How to Cook the Buckwheat Pancakes:

1. Heat a crepe or frying pan over a high flame and brush with a good coating of oil so it is well seasoned. Let the pan come up to temperature. 

2. Take a small ladleful of batter and pour it into the pan. Move the pan around to spread out the batter in a thin, even layer. As the pancake cooks, you will see bubbles rise to the surface. 

3. With a spatula, carefully release the pancake around the edges and flip over. Transfer to a plate and repeat the process with more batter until it is all used up. 

4. Spread a few tablespoons of filling mixture onto one half of the pancake, fold the other half over, and serve immediately.
