Bento Bites: Kale Pancakes

I am falling more and more in love with vegetable pancakes. I just like how satisfying they are without too much effort and especially how you can take them with you in a bento, if you make smaller ones. In the Netherlands the classic way to eat kale is in a mashpot, but when I found half a bag leftover in the freezer, I wanted to try something different and I choose these pancakes. The original recipe comes from

Kale Pancakes: (about 12 pancakes, depending on size)
- 300 gr kale, defrosted
- 2 spring onions
- 3 eggs
- 600 ml milk
- 400 gr pancake mix or flour and baking powder
- sunflower oil
- salt and pepper

Boil the kale for about 20 minutes in some water until done. Drain the kale and let it cool down for a bit, then press out the moist. Heat some oil in a pan and bake the spring onions. Beat the pancake mix with milk and eggs until you have a batter. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the kale and spring onions including juices and leave the batter to rest for 15 minutes.

Heat some oil in a large frying pan and scoop in 3 piles of batter with a ladle. Bake the pancakes on high for about 6 minutes, turning halfway. Keep the pancakes warm on a plate under aluminium foil while you bake the other 9.
