This is a spin off of my regular spinach pancakes that I created many years ago. And it has been loved and enjoyed by my in-law. I do not have the sweet tooth like many other people. But I do love anything with carbs. If you learned about my keto diet journey, you know that I try my best to replace regular carbs with something else.
For many years, I tried and followed many different methods to wring out all the extra liquid out of a box of thawed frozen spinach. There is one thing that I dislike is to use a kitchen towel. First of all, the stain on the towel from the spinach is hard to clean up. It is like grass stain. Besides, using a towel sounds disgusting to begin with.
I used a colander a few times in the past, which was used for straining a pot of spaghetti. But I lost quite a bit of spinach.
I finally invented this method just by risking it one time and thought, "Well, if I don't try it, I will never know." I was shocked by the result. It was super awesome.
All you need to do is to keep the thawed vegetables in the original package. During the thawing process, the box got softened because of the moisture. So, it is very flexible. So, open the lid and press both sides together diagonally and squeeze out all the liquid. The reason why the box needs to be folded diagonally because it will automatically create an outlet where all the liquid pours out of the box easily. Now, you can skip cleaning a towel, a colander or whatever dish you need to do for this process. As soon as the vegetables are out, discard the box. Super easy!!!
Almond flour is grounded nuts. As you know, when you toast nuts, they are easily burn if you don't pay close attention. Therefore, making this spinach pancake recipe must stick with medium heat and a lot of patience. Otherwise, you need to start all over again.
Some may ask if coconut flour is a good alternative. I personally would stay away from it because the coconut scent would be too strong for this savory recipe. But feel free to give it a try. It may be acceptable to you.
Yes, you can double or triple this spinach pancake recipe. If you choose to do so, you will cook the pancakes in separate batches. Cover the cooked pancakes with a tented foil to keep them warm while you are finishing the rest of them.
