Savoury Lamb Pancake


Serves 4


  • 1 box Orgran Buckwheat Pancake mix (or like replacement)
  • 200ml rice milk
  • 250ml water
  • 3 eggs
  • Nuttelex for cooking
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  • 1 cup finely chopped purple cabbage
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 2 Brussel sprouts, finely sliced
  • 1 small choko, peeled and sliced into thin slivers
  • Suitable cooking oil (rice bran oil)
Good accompaniment if desired is a suitable hummus: see my Lupin Kibble Hummus Recipe in the Low Chemical recipes, free from gluten/wheat and dairy foods, Condiments & Dips




  •  Preheat the oven to 80 degrees Celsius to keep the pancakes warm once cooked
  • In a small fry pan, fry the garlic and chives in Nuttelex for about 1 minute….set aside
  • To a mixing bowl, add the pancake mix, water, rice milk, eggs and saffron & water
  • Whisk until you have a smooth batter, then stir through the chives and garlic
  • Cook the pancakes. Melt some Nuttelex on the flat griddle pan and spread about one half cup of the pancake mixture thinly over the surface (~23cm or 9 inch diameter)
  • Flip to brown the second side and then place on baking paper in the oven to keep warm. 
  • Repeat until the mixture is finished. 

 Meat and Vegetables

  • Cook the lamb backstrap for about 4 minutes on each side, rest and then finely slice
  • Stir fry leek, cabbage, shallot, choko and Brussel sprouts in oil for about 6 minutes


To assemble
  • Place a pancake on a flat surface or plate
  • If using the hummus….spread this on one side of each of the 4 pancakes
  • Put one quarter of the meat down the middle of each pancake
  • Add enough vegetables so the pancake can still roll up.
  • Roll the pancakes
  • Serve excess vegetables on the side


  • Freeze extra pancakes to use later. They can be frozen with baking paper between each.
