There are a lot of great pumpkin recipes, but this one is my daughter's favorite. It is really simple to make and it is really delicious! Even my husband, who is not a great pumpkin fan, likes it too.
My daughter loves pancakes and I often make them in a salty version, sneaking some veggies inside, as I did for this cute rabbit.
Last weekend we welcomed autumn and when I was doing my grocery shopping, pumpkins were all over the place. I let my daughter pick one and told her we would be making some pancakes. She loved the idea! When I asked her what kind of cute presentation of this meal she wanted, she said: a snake! Of course, this couldn't be more simple:) So here it is, our funny snake made of a pumpkin pancake wrap, stuffed with smoked salmon, spinach and ricotta. Yum!
450g/16ounces of pumpkin
150g/5ounces of spinach
150g/5ounces cup of flour
125cl of milk (1/2 of cup)
a few slices of smoked salmon
1 tablespoon of ricotta cheese
1 black olive
salt, pepper, nutmeg
Did you know that snake's part of the body that is in direct contact with the ground is very sensitive to vibration? A snake can sense other animals approaching by detecting faint vibrations in the air and on the ground.
Step1 Cut the pumpkin into cubes, remove the skin and cook it until tender. Place it in a bowl and let it cool a bit. While the pumpkin cooks, fry the spinach with oil, salt and pepper. Remove all the liquid that may remain and mix it with ricotta cheese.
Step2 Use your blender to mix the pumpkin to obtain a puree. Then add flour, milk, egg and spiced. Mix everything together.
Step3 Heat the frying pan with a bit of oil. Fry the pancakes on both sides. If you have difficulties to flip it over, you may add a bit more flour to your mixture from Step2.
Step4 When all the pancakes are ready, spread a bit of spinach and ricotta and place a slice of smoked salmon. Wrap the pancakes.
Step5 When it comes to presentation, my husband and I had simple pumpkin pancakes wraps and my daughter got a snake:) I cut two dots from the black olive using a straw and used them to make the snake's eyes. I used a bit of spinach to make the snake's tongue. My daughter loved it:) Enjoy!Pumpkin recipes - pancake wraps with salmon, spinach and ricotta
