Kale pancakes with smoked salmon and poached eggs 🥬


Ingredients: 2 people

  • Pancakes ingredients:
    • 1 small bunch of green kale 🥬
    • 2 eggs
    • 75g flour – I used buckwheat, I like it with salmon
    • 25g corn flour – it will make your pancakes extra fluffy
    • 2 tbsp baking powder
    • 100ml milk – I used almond milk
    • Salt & pepper
  • To serve:
    • 2 eggs
    • Half a lemon cut in wedges
    • 90g smoked salmon
    • Fresh dill/ chive
    • 2 tbsp of sunflower seeds


  1. Wash, cut and remove the stems from the kale. Place in a food processor and blend in small pieces. Place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the 2 eggs and mix.
  3. Add the flour, corn flour and baking powder. Mix again.
  4. Add some salt and pepper.
  5. Finally add the milk. Mix well until you obtain a smooth batter. Do not over mix if you want your pancakes to be fluffy.
  6. Pour a ladle of batter over a hot pan. Heat over medium heat until you see small bubbles on the surface. It’s a sign that it must be turned over. Allow about 2 to 3 minutes. Once the pancake is turned over, cook for about 1 minute more.
  7. Prepare the poach eggs. I personally use this easy method: Crack egg into the clingfilm in the mug. Seal the cling film up at the top by twisting together. Bring a pan of water to the boil place eggs into the pan on full to medium heat and cook for 4minutes. Get eggs out of pan and undo cling film.
  8. Prepare a plate by stacking 3 pancakes, then place the smoke salmon slices and finally the poached egg on top.
  9. Optional: sprinkle some fresh dill or chive on top and some sunflower seeds.
  10. Serve with a lemon wedge on the side and a yogurt dressing if needed. 🍋
