  1. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Once heated, add onion and cook until translucent.
  2. Add bell pepper and courgette. Cook for about five minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the garlic and greens. Cover with lid and cook for a few minutes, until the greens are wilted. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, stir together chickpea flour, baking powder, smoked paprika, turmeric, salt and black pepper.
  5. Add water and apple cider vinegar and stir well, making sure there are no clumps.
  6. Stir the cooked vegetables into the batter, making sure it is well combined.
  7. In the same pan you cooked the vegetables in earlier, add a small bit of oil and heat over medium heat.
  8. Once the oil is hot, spoon batter into pancakes, flipping the pancakes when they move easily in the pan and are not sticking.
