Dairy Free Beef And Watercress Griddle Cakes:
Serves 2

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes



  1. Fry the beef with a large pinch of salt until brown in a large frying pan, then drain on a paper towel. Once drained, stir together with the watercress and spring onions in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, flour and water with a pinch of salt until fully combined. Add to the beef and watercress mixture, adding more flour if consistency seems too thin.
  3. Heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in a griddle or frying pan over a medium heat. Measure out 2 tbsp of the mixture per cake and drop into the skillet. Fry until brown, then flip and brown on the other side.
  4. Remove the cake and place on a warm plate lined with greaseproof paper, keeping covered until serving. Repeat the process with the remaining batter, adding more oil when required.
  5. Serve the griddle cakes warm with the soy sauce on the side for dipping.
