Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180C/gas 4/fan 160C. Wrap the pancakes in foil and warm them through in the oven for 10 minutes. Alternatively, wrap in cling film and reheat in the microwave on Medium (750W) for 2-3 minutes.

  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the onion and fry for 5 minutes until softened. Tip in the cauliflower florets and fry briefly until they take on a little colour. Splash in 5 tbsp water, cover the pan and cook for 5 minutes until the cauliflower is just tender.

  3. Stir the chickpeas into the pan with the arrabbiata sauce and bring to the boil. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, then stir in the coriander and remove from the heat.

  4. Transfer the sauce to a serving bowl and put on the table with the warm pancakes, yogurt and spinach leaves. Let everyone put a few spinach leaves in the centre of each pancake, spoon the filling over and top with a little yogurt. The sides can then be folded into the middle and the pancakes eaten with a knife and fork.

This was a bit bland so I seasoned it and it was fine. Really enjoyed this, so did my two boys 10 and 13. We used Tortilla instead of pancake. Will definitely make again.

I spread Caramelised onion hummus on to the pancake (instead of chickpeas) and sour cream instead of yoghurt. Probably a slightly more unhealthy option, however it was delicious!!

Worked well with pancakes and was very tasty. There's definitely no spice to it though, it's a very mild dish!

A bit bland, had to spice this bad boy up. But overall very filling.

Very tasty, quick and easy to prepare. I substituted shop bought tortilla wraps for the pancakes, and a tin of chopped tomates with harissa paste added to it for the jar of arrabbiata sauce. Will definately make again.

Very nice as a savoury filling on pancake day! Everyone loved it. Skipped the cauliflower though- ick.
