I was out the other day and ate brunch at Andina last weekend in Shoreditch. The Peruvian cuisine is very hipster chick at the moment and whilst my husband and I could have devoured the entire menu, the only thing that caught my kid’s’ eye was avocado pancakes.
I couldn’t be happier as avocado is something I struggle to get them to eat – they won’t it in salads, run from guacamole so I need to sneak it into things. The only thing they haven’t noticed is Thermomix Frozen Fruit Sorbet so anything that gets them to eat avocados is a good thing in my life.
If you love avocado as much as I do, the thought of avocado pancakes will make you very happy. The super creamy ingredient makes the batter nice and soft with a light, fresh flavour. The beauty is that they look exactly like regular pancakes but we know it’s the healthier version.
The recipe is easy peasy, it just needs someone to be a little bit adventurous and try it. Perfect for upcoming Shrove Tuesday as an alternative to the standard pancake batter recipe.
Serve with a poached egg or crispy bacon for a luxury weekend treat and you’ll never look back! If you’re really, really short on time you can make these up ahead of when you need them. Whip up the batter, cook the pancakes and leave them covered in the fridge until you’re ready to eat them. Then all they’ll need is a couple of minutes in a hot pan to warm through!
