  1. Firstly, prepare a batch of pancakes.
  2. Put the spinach in a colander over the sink and pour over enough boiling water to wilt the leaves. Leave to cool slightly, then squeeze out the excess water. Transfer to a bowl and mix with the ricotta, feta and pine nuts.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan over a low heat and add the onion, garlic and thyme leaves. Cook for 5-10 mins, or until softened, then add the spinach and ricotta mixture. Heat through for 1 minute, and then season to taste. Remove from the heat.
  4. To serve, divide the filling between 4 pancakes and carefully roll them up.
