Get Ready for Pancake Tuesday and Korean New Year!

Lent is just around the corner and maybe if you never got onto that post-Christmas/New Year diet (or maybe you just got off your alcohol free January!) now is the time to give practise some abstinence! We think it’s pretty safe to say that you probably won’t be abstaining from fruit and vegetables. But before Lent kicks off remember that it’s Shrove Tuesday next week and yes, of course that means pancakes!!!

Check out the very fun and silly fundraiser for the London Air Ambulance at our local Great Spitalfields Pancake Race. Speaking of which, did you know that our very own Royal London Hospital is home to London Air Ambulance and specialises in treating trauma.

Back to pancakes, how about a winter vegetable pancake (filled pancakes with cheesey veg) or this all-mixed-in vegetable pancake recipe? Definitely puts your cabbage and root vegetables to work. Or a classic German potato pancake for lunch?

Also, with Korean New Year around the corner (it’s on Monday) it’s perfect timing to make a Korean pan-jeon vegetable pancake (or use this recipe with regular flour instead of rice flour). Or try making an Japanese okonomiyaki cabbage pizza-pancake.

And if you are still wondering what to do with your blood oranges, here’s a sweet blood orange pancake recipe that ditches all of the butter and sugar, and fortified them with Greek yoghurt and soy milk to boost the protein content. Or an apple and kiwi fruit pancake would be oh so perfect.
