Spring Feelings: Pancakes with Spinach and Pesto

Because it is almost Easter, I have another Spring recipe to share. Budget friendly and you can have it for lunch or a light dinner after the filling Easter brunch that most people in the Netherlands enjoy. We made this as a weekend dinner, a couple of weeks ago and I plan to make it more often when the Spring weather returns. The original recipe is from Lekker en Simpel.

Pancakes with Spinach and Pesto (serves 2)
- 150 gr spinach
- 100 gr pancake mix
- 150 ml milk
- 1 tbsp green pesto
- 1-2 eggs
- 65 ml creme fraiche
- 125 gr mushrooms

Mix in a bowl the pancake mix with milk, a pinch of salt and eggs until there are no lumps. Set aside. Clean and slice the mushrooms. Heat some olive oil in a pan and bake the mushrooms for about a minute before adding the spinach. When the spinach has wilted add pesto and creme fraiche to the mix. Stir through and let it simmer.

In another pan heat a bit of butter and bake a pancake from about 1/4 of the batter golden brown. About 2 minutes on each side. Bake 3 more pancakes. Serve them with 1/4 of the mushroom mixture on each pancake.
