Any food that can be rolled or wrapped is always a hit in my book and the challenge has been to find alternatives to wraps made of vegetables, which, by the way, are delicious too!
I made a lasagne the other week and I used the lasagne sheets from the Danish LCHF food blogger Madbanditten. While they work really well in a lasagne they are not very good wraps – they are a bit too crunchy and difficult to roll, which obviously defies the purpose of my mission.
Inspired by Madbanditten’s basic recipe and my box of Pofiber I simply replaced some of the Husk with Pofiber, and voila! the result was a soft, very rollable, pancake and voila! (again) a whole new world of food rolling has just opened its doors to me.
Madbanditten’s lasagne sheets
125g soft cream cheese (full fat)
4 large tsps Husk
1 tsp oregano
Preheat the oven to 150c/300F/Gas 2
Whisk the eggs and the cheese together. Make sure that there are no lumps. Add Husk and oregano and mix well. Pour into a baking tray covered with baking paper. The batter is very thin but once baked it will be easy to cut into lasagne sized sheets. Make sure the batter is evenly spread in the baking tray – use a spatula – before baking in the middle of the oven for about 15 mins.
Wraps or savory pancakes
makes 6 medium sized pancakes
125g soft cream cheese
2 large tsps Husk
4 large tsps Pofiber
¼ tsp salt
Coconut oil for frying
Whisk the eggs and cheese together. Make sure that there are no lumps. Add salt, Husk and Pofiber and mix well. Leave to rest for about 5 minutes.
The batter will get thicker the longer it rests, so if you’re making a large batch I would recommend using two pans. You can stir in a little bit of water in the batter gets too thick. Melt a small amount of coconut oil in the pan(s). Ladle some batter into the pan, tilting the pan to move the mixture around for a thin and even layer. For a medium size pancake use 50ml (1/2dl) of batter and for a large pancake use 100ml (1dl) of batter.
You can also bake the batter in the oven, like the lasagne sheets, but it wil be more crisp. Oh, maybe it can be used for pizza … so watch this space!
