I made this Tuna-Pancake Roll few weeks ago (it was last month I think). I never made this kind of dish before and I was surprised that it was more than edible. It was good!! I usually eat pancake for breakfast with some sugar or honey or with some bacon or sliced fruits. Any kind of topping I want. But I never tried to fill it with something and roll it like this.

It is a pancake filled with tuna and mixed vegetables, roll it, and bake it in the oven. It's easy, simple, and kind of unique for me. Even better, people who doesn't have electric oven can make this one as well as long as they have oven toaster.

Actually, the story begin on few weeks ago, when i was doing some shopping with my kids on a local grocery store, my daughter saw a flyer recipe suggestion over there. She took it and asked me if i could make it for her. She assumed that it must be delicious because she read "kids favoriet" on the bottom of the recipe. Well, most of the recipe with those note are usually acceptable and friendly for children.

It has a short recipe on the back of this flyer.

I read the recipe, and it seems easy and affordable. It's good idea for a dinner and beside, i still had some canned tuna at home and some vegetables. I just needed to buy some ready to eat pancake and some other small ingredients. (oh yeah!! Those time I was too lazy to make the pancake by myself.) So, let's get started :)

Ingredients :
  • 2 can of canned tuna in olive oil
  • 6 whole wheat pancake (Tip : It's a dutch pancake or we call it pannenkoek, not an American pancake)
  • 150 grams broccoli, chopped into small pieces
  • 100 grams carrots, chopped into small cubes
  • white part of 1 leek, thinly sliced
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 150 grams creme fraiche
  • 100 grams grated cheese
  • some coriander leaves
  • salt and pepper

Preparation :

  1. Preheat the oven for 180 C (356 F)
  2. Take and heat about 3 tbs of oil from canned tuna in a pan.
  3. Put all the chopped broccoli and carrot and saute them for about 1 minute or until the vegetables start to become tender.
  4. Add sliced leeks and green onion into the pan and stir them again.
  5. Drain the tuna from its oil.
  6. Add the tuna into the pan and stir it until the tuna is mixed well with the vegetable.
  7. Turn off the heat and let it cooled a little bit.
  8. Prepare the pancake in a plate or another flat surface.
  9. Take about 3-4 tbs tuna mix and put it on the top of pancake. 
  10. Roll the pancake and wrap the tuna.
  11. Put it on the baking dish with the seam side down. (Tip:  If you do not have a big enough baking dish you can make by yourself a disposable baking dish using aluminium foil and put it on the baking tray)
  12. Repeat the process with another pancake and tuna mix.
  13. Take about 1 tbs creme fraiche, put on the top of the rolled pancake and spread it just until to cover the pancake.
  14. Add some grated cheese on the top of it and sprinkle some chopped coriander leaves.
  15. Put it into the oven (near the top part of the oven) and bake it for about 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  16. Remove it from the oven and garnish with freshly chopped coriander and chili pepper.
  17. Serve it hot with roasted or fried potato and some chili sauce if you like.
