Broken Vegetable Pancake

This is a dish which is a mix between scrambled egg and a pancake. I always find Spanish omelettes a bit too heavy with all their egg, so I was pleased to be able to come up with a lighter dish.


  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced

  • 20g butter

  • 30g french beans, ends removed

  • 1 red onion, finely chopped

  • 1 egg

  • 30g self raising flour

  • 30ml water

  • 30ml milk

  • a pinch of salt and pepper



  • Put the carrot, butter, beans and red onion in a frying pan and fry on a gentle heat for 7 minutes, stirring frequently.

  • Mix up the flour and water. When you have a smooth paste add the milk and salt and pepper.

  • Pour the batter into the frying pan. Leave it to cook on the same gentle heat.

  • After about 5 to 10 minutes the top of the batter should appear to be starting to go solid.

  • Carefully place a plate over the top of the pan and then turn the two together so that the half cooked pancake is on the plate.

  • Slide the pancake off the plate back into the pan, so that it's now the other way up. Don't worry if it breaks up a little, it'll do that.

  • Cook for a further 5 minutes to brown the bottom of the pancake and then serve.


    Serves 1 to 2.
