  • 1 x 50g pouch of ZENB Carrot & Red Lentil mash
  • 270ml milk (dairy or plant)
  • 400g Mexican style beans
  • 2 spring onion - finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp of fresh chopped coriander
  • 40g smoky chipotle breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 Red onion - finely diced
  • 100g tomatoes - finely diced
  • 1/2 jalapeno - finely diced
  • 2 lime - 1 juiced, 1 to serve in wedges
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chipotle paste
  • 2 fried eggs
  • 1 avocado - sliced
  • Feta
  • Salt & Pepper to serve



To a saucepan, add the ZENB mash pouch flour mix, milk, salt & pepper. Whisk until smooth, bring to the boil and cook for 30 seconds until a smooth and thick mash. Remove from the heat, set aside for 10 minutes to cool down.


To a mixing bowl, mash up the Mexican style beans with a potato mash or fork. Then add the ZENB mash, spring onion, coriander and mix together.


Put the breadcrumbs on a plate and divide out the mash mix into 4. With wet hands, carefully shape into 4 pancake patties about 2-3cm thick. 

Coat each pancake with the breadcrumbs and transfer them to the fridge for 30 minutes to chill or over night.


Cut tomatoes in half, de-seed and dice up. In a bowl add the tomatoes, red onion, coriander, juice of a lime, jalapeño & salt for the salsa.


Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan and cook the pancake patties for 3 – 4 minutes each side until golden and crispy. 

In a separate frying pan, on a high heat add 1 tsp chipotle paste to the pan with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Crack two eggs into the pan and fry until crispy, season to taste with salt and pepper.


Stack the pancakes on top of each other (2 per portion). Serve with fried egg, slices of avocado, salsa, feta and a lime wedge.
