Kimchi Pankes

I'm always looking for new plant-based breakfast ideas and these are surprisingly crave-worthy. They're crisp and filling and a good kimchi seasons them perfectly, without needing to add anything else. They sit somewhere in between an omelette and a savoury pancake and are delicious alone or with some extra toppings.

Gluten-free & vegan. Serves 4


4 spring onions

200g kimchi

150g gram flour

300ml water

2 tbsp of olive oil

Avocado, to serve


Step 1: Slice kimchi and onions

1. Slice the spring onions and roughly chop the kimchi.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the gram flour and water until smooth. Keep whisking to remove any lumps.

Step 2: Mix batter

3. Stir in the spring onions and kimchi.

4. Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized pan on medium-high heat. Ladle in a quarter of the mixture. Cook for about 90 seconds, then flip and cook for another 60 seconds. The first pancake will take a little longer than the rest - they should only need about 60 seconds each side.

Step 3: Fry

5. Serve the pancakes hot and crispy with some ripe avocado.

I started taking Symprove in November and I'm annoyed at myself for not starting sooner. It's a liquid probiotic supplement that I'd heard rave reviews but I hesitated because of the price (it's €30 a week or €99 for a month). They say it takes 12 weeks to see optimal results but I noticed a change after a week - I have a really sensitive gut and I've seen a huge improvement in my digestion and bloating. You drink it first thing every morning, and after a few days the tangy taste is hardly noticeable. You can order it on (I prefer the mango and passionfruit flavour) and in some health stores/chemists. NOTE: Always consult your GP before taking supplements.
