  1. Make the batter by mixing the flour, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl. Gradually whisk in 150ml water, followed by the yoghurt or crème fraiche, then fold through the lime pickle.

  2. Heat half the oil in the frying pan over a high heat. Add the Tenderstem® broccoli, mix well then turn the heat to low and cook for 1 min.

  3. Add the rest of the oil and turn the heat back to high. Pour the batter in, spreading it to all the gaps. After 1 min, turn the heat to low and cook for 3-4 mins (it will cook quicker the heavier your pan is).

  4. Meanwhile, heat the grill to high. Once the base of the pancake is nice and browned, set under the grill for around 2 mins to finish cooking on the top. It should be golden and soft and moist but not wet in the middle.

  5. Serve with salad, chopped green chilli, coriander, spring onions and a squeeze of lime juice, if desired.
