    Gluten-free pistachio pancakes with vanilla-cardamom strawberries

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 40 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes

    Serves: 4


    100g mixed seeds
    100g pistachios
    100g gluten free rolled porridge oats
    420ml Rachel’s Organic Greek Style Natural Set Yogurt
    150ml semi-skimmed milk
    3 eggs
    1 tsp baking powder
    ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
    2 tsp vegetable oil

    275g pack Waitrose & Partners Strawberries, hulled and halved (quartered if large)
    1 vanilla pod (or 1 tsp vanilla bean paste), split and seeds scraped out
    6 cardamom pods, bashed
    60g orange blossom honey, plus extra to serve
    1 lemon, pared zest, juice of all


    1. Put all the ingredients for the strawberries into a small pan over a low-medium heat and bring to a simmer. Cook gently for 8-10 minutes until the strawberries are softened but still holding their shape, then set aside.

    2. Meanwhile, pulse the seeds and pistachios in the small bowl of a food processor, until roughly chopped. Reserve 50g, then whizz the rest with the porridge oats until finely ground. Tip into a large bowl and stir in 300ml yogurt, the milk, eggs, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda.

    3. Heat 1 tsp oil in a heavy- based frying pan and, once hot, add 2 heaped dessert spoons of batter per pancake (you should be able to make 3-4 at a time, being careful not to overfill the pan). Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 4-5 minutes, until bubbles appear and the tops of the pancakes start to set. Flip and cook for 3-4 minutes, until browned and set. Keep warm and repeat with the remaining batter. Serve with a dollop of the remaining yogurt, the strawberries (avoid the whole spices), and the reserved seeds and nuts scattered over.
