Step 5

Heat the sunflower oil in a large fryigng pan then pour some of the pancake mixture into the pan. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until brown and crisp. Repeat this step several times to make all of the pancakes.

Step 6

Place the spinach back in the sauce pan with the olive oil, pine nuts and sliced dried fruit. Cook for 2 minutes to heat the mixture through.

Step 7

Place the mixture inside the pancakes then add the nut sauce on top of the closed pancake.
