TEFAL-Gluten-Free Carrot Pancakes

We may have missed National Pancake Day (Yes, this is a real day, celebrated on the 19th of February), but we don’t need a special day to eat pancakes. Using the Cuisine Companion, these gluten free carrot pancakes are quick and easy, without the guilt. Enjoy!

Chef: Justine Schofield

Serves: 2

Time: 15 minutes


2 carrots, coarsely grated

2 tbsp rice malt syrup or honey

1 egg

½ cup ricotta

½ cup of chickpea flour or gluten-free cornflour

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper


1 cup of Greek yoghurt

1 tsp hot chilli sauce

4 rashers of bacon

2 spring onions, white part only, finely chopped

2 eggs, soft boiled for 6 minutes

1 tsp coriander, leaves picked


Place the carrot, rice malt syrup, egg and ricotta in a food processor and pulse 6-7 times to just bind. Add a pinch of salt and the chickpea flour and mix again until combined.

Heat oil in a non-stick pan over a medium-high heat. Fry approx. ½ cup of the carrot mixture for 1-2 minutes then turn over and cook for a further 1-2 minutes. Repeat the process to cook the remaining carrot pancakes.

Fry the bacon in a separate pan until crispy.

To make the sauce, combine the yoghurt and hot chilli sauce in a small bowl.

To serve, spoon and spread the sauce on the plates, top with pancakes, a soft-boiled egg and crispy bacon, spring onions and coriander.
