Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Servings: 4 people


Firstly, prepare a batch of pancakes

Put the spinach in a colander over the sink and pour over enough boiling water to wilt the leaves.

Leave to cool slightly, then squeeze out the excess water.

Transfer to a bowl and mix with the ricotta, feta and pine nuts.

Heat the oil in a pan over a low heat and add the onion, garlic and thyme leaves.

Cook for 5-10 minutes, or until softened, then add the spinach and ricotta mixture.

Heat through for 1 minute, and then season to taste.

Remove from the heat.

To serve, divide the filling between 4 pancakes and carefully roll them up.
