Green eggs and ham

Green Eggs and Ham - Perfect Vata grounding food, great for breakfast or any time of the day for that matter!

75g pesto
1 egg
75g flour
150ml semi-skimmed milk
oil for frying
5 large thin slices of hamServing Size : Makes 5

Blend or whisk together the pesto, egg, flour and milk to make a batter.

Oil a crêpe pan or heavy-based frying pan, wiping away any excess oil with some kitchen paper, and place over a medium heat.
Ladle in approximately 100ml of batter, swirling instantly to gain a paper-thin crêpe.
Once the top becomes dry and the edges lift away, flick it over with a thin rubber or wooden spatula to cook the other side for about 30 seconds.
Layer the pancakes between pieces of baking parchment or greaseproof paper as you go, and when you have finished making them, lay a slice of ham on each one and roll up or fold into triangles – or however you like!
