  • 250 ml (81⁄2 fl oz/1 cup) Quick plant cream
  • Olive oil, for frying
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper

For the pancakes

  • Olive oil, for frying
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2–4 medjool dates, torn into pieces
  • 120 g (4 oz/1 cup) buckwheat flour

2. Add the dates and set aside.

3. Put all the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix well, then stir in the onion and dates.

4. Reheat the pan, then spoon out your pancakes one by one. There should be enough for four pancakes in total.
