  1. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Wrap the pancakes in foil and warm them through in the oven for 10 mins. Alternatively, wrap and reheat in the microwave on medium for 2-3 mins.

  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the onion and fry for 5 mins 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 mins 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 mins, 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.

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.
