Measure out the milk in a jug and add the orange
juice up to the 150ml mark. Crack in the egg and beat together with a fork. Stir
in the grated beetroot. Next, place the flour and salt into a bowl and pour over
the egg mixture, mixing well with a fork.

Pour ladlefuls of the pancake
batter into a small non-stick pan moistened with a little oil, swirling as you
go and then fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, until browned and crisp around the

Drizzle with a little agave syrup and serve hot.
