Makes 8 pancakes
5 nettle tops, chopped
50 gr blueberries
50 gr yoghurt
½ lemon, juice
30 gr sugar
80 gr self raising flour
olive oil, coconut oil, or vegetable oil for cooking
Macerate the nettle in lemon juice and sugar for at least 30 minutes (or even better, overnight).
Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites: whisk the egg whites until fluffy. Mix the egg yolks with the nettle, sugar, lemon, flour, blueberries and yoghurt. Slowly add the whisked egg whites.
Heat a frying pan and add some oil; pour about 1 tablespoon of the pancake batter in the pan, cook for 1 minute or less and turn over cooking for a further minute. Serve immediately.
