These savoury green pancakes are a healthy option for breakfast or dinner. Naturally gluten-free, they are also packed full of  leafy green vegetables and protein.


  • 1 bunch of greens (chard, kale or spinach)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of fresh cheese (see notes for options)
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp of diced onion
  • 1 clove of garlic


  1. Wash and remove the greens from their stems. You want about 3 cups of green in total.
  2. Place the washed and trimmed greens, along with all of the other ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Warm a frying pan on medium heat.
  4. Pour in 1/4 cup of batter.
  5. The pancake will be ready to flip when it is bubbling in the middle and dry around the edges. Flip, then cook the other side for about 1 minute.
  6. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 300 F oven until all the pancakes are ready to serve. 


  • I created this recipe using kefir cheese, however, ricotta, feta or cottage cheese will all work as well.
  • For a sweet (rather than savoury) breakfast-style pancake, omit the onion and garlic.
  • See the section above for some more serving options.
