Asparagus season is in full swing and I'm trying to cook with asparagus as often as possible. I had a little bit of pesto left over in the fridge and found myself craving pancakes all of a sudden. I decided to make buckwheat pancakes, coated in pesto and rolled up around cooked asparagus. Simply delicious! My mouth is watering just thinking about this dish.

How it's done

Pancake batter

Puree all of the ingredients in a blender until you have a smooth batter. Cover and chill for approx. 20 mins.


Arrange the asparagus on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Spread the pesto on top of the asparagus, gently massage in.

Cook for approx. 10 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 180°C.

To cook & fill the pancakes

Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan. Pour approx. half of the batter into the pan, reduce the heat. Once the underside is cooked (after approx. 6 mins.) and separates from the pan, turn the pancake, cook for a further 2 mins., cover and keep warm. Repeat these steps with the remainder of the batter.

Coat the pancake with pesto. Add the asparagus, roll up the pancake, sprinkle with hemp seeds.

Good to know
Note: Aquafaba is the liquid found in a can of chickpeas.
