Roasted roots and cheddar pancakes

Ingredients

  • 75g/3oz plain flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 large British Lion eggs
  • 150ml/1/4pt milk
  • a little oil for frying
  • For the filling:
  • 4 small beetroot (about 225g/8oz in weight)
  • 225g/8oz Chantenay carrots, trimmed
  • 2 small red onions, peeled
  • 30ml/2tbsp olive oil
  • 5ml/1tsp coriander seeds, lightly crushed
  • 175g/6oz mature Cheddar cheese
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. First make the filling: preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/400°F/ Gas Mark 6. Trim the beetroot, but don’t peel. Scrub the beetroot and carrots clean and pat dry. Cut each beetroot and onion into 6-8 wedges and place in a roasting tin. Add the onions, oil, coriander, plenty of seasoning and 30ml/2tbsp of water and toss well. Roast for 20-25 mins, stirring half-way through, until the vegetables are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, make the pancakes: place the flour, salt and eggs in a large bowl with half the milk. Whisk until the mixture is lump free. Add the remaining milk and whisk again until smooth. If you prefer, place all the ingredients together in a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour the batter into a jug. It should be the consistency of single cream, add a little water if it seems too thick. The batter can be made in advance and chilled for up to 8 hours before use.
  3. Heat a 20cm/8in diameter non-stick frying pan until hot, drizzle a little oil over the centre and wipe it around with a piece of kitchen paper. Pour a little of the batter into the pan and immediately tilt the pan to spread the batter thinly and evenly over the base. Cook for 2 mins or until the top is set and the base golden. Turn the pancake over with a spatula, or if you are feeling brave, flip the pancake!
  4. Cook for a further 1-2 mins or until the other side is golden. Transfer to a plate and interleave with greaseproof paper, and keep warm in the oven. Use the batter and a little more oil to make a further 7-8 pancakes in the same way (depending upon thickness).
  5. Remove the vegetables from the oven. Divide them between four of the warm pancakes, scatter half the cheese over the vegetables. Fold each pancake into quarters and place on a non-stick baking sheet. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and place under a hot grill for 1-2 mins until the cheese is golden and melted. Serve hot with a leafy salad.
  6. Interleave the remaining pancakes with non-stick paper and once cold, store in the fridge. They can then be reheated in the microwave on High for 1½ -2 mins depending on the wattage of your microwave.

Using leftovers to create a delicious Monday meal. What can you find in your kitchen tonight? #foodinspo #mondaymeals #leftovers #dinner #eggsThese spicy potato Scotch eggs are a great vegetarian addition to any lunchbox or weekend meal with family/friends. Serve with mango chutney and salad and you’re ready to go! #lunchboxideas #britishlioneggs #britisheggweek #scotcheggs #letsgetcrackingHere are some of our top tips for avoiding that hangry feeling. For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
