Servings: Change Serving


Fry the bacon in a pan until crisp, remove and then brown the mushrooms in the same pan. Add the spring onions, spinach and tomatoes, and fry for a few minutes more until the tomatoes have burst open and the spinach has wilted. Spoon the bacon into the mixture and keep warm.

Heat a small non-stick pan over a hot plate. Add a little of the beaten egg to the pan, tilting it to spread the egg evenly just as you would a pancake. Cook for 30 seconds until golden brown and flip over to fry for a few seconds more. Repeat with all the pancakes. Divide the bacon filling among the pancakes and serve with chopped avocado.

Tip of the day

Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
