Spinach and Cauliflower Pancakes (Shrek-Cakes)

Once a week, I make savoury pancakes for dinner. It is an easy meal that the kids love. Not only do they eat them up without a fuss, but I also know that they are getting plenty of nutrition from the vegetables I include in the recipe.

Suitable for 9-12mths +.

And for the adults, I serve topped with dill and smoked salmon.

1 large bowl of baby spinach leaves (approx 80-100g)
1 onion
1 carrot
2 eggs
3/4 cup cauliflower puree
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup grated cheese (mozzarella for low salt version)
2 tbsp shredded parmesan
1 cup SR flour

  1. In a food processor, puree spinach, onion, and carrot, adding eggs, cauliflower, and milk as necessary to enable mixing.
  2. Mix in cheeses and SR flour until well combined and not lumpy.
  3. Spoon batter into lightly greased hot fry pan and cook with lid on until bubbles begin to form.
  4. Flip once and cook on other side.
  5. Serve hot as they are or topped with smoked ham or salmon.
