Green Pea Pancakes

The second addition to my meatless Monday series, are these delicious green pea pancakes! I originally tried green pea pancakes at a popular breakfast spot in Canberra, and instantly wanted to recreate them at home. I've since made them many times, and they are delicious with a range of toppings. Perfect for breakfast, lunch or even dinner! 

If you like eating simple, tasty and nutritious food, then this is for you. These green pea pancakes are a recipe for success, so why not mix up your weekend, or meatless Monday and gives these a try! 

What you need (serves 2-4, makes 7-8 pancakes):

For the pancakes

500g defrosted frozen baby peas

3 eggs

1/4 cup water 

1/2 cup flour of choice (I used wholemeal)

½ teaspoon baking soda

pinch of salt and pepper

1 cup of grated cheese (optional)

Olive oil for cooking

What you do:

  1. Blend baby peas with eggs and water, then mix in flour and baking soda, and season with salt and pepper. Add grated cheese. 
  2. Heat a medium sized frypan to medium heat and add a small amount of olive oil, and spoon 1/2 cup amount of green pea pancake mix into the pan. Cook until bubbles have appeared on the surface of the pancake, and then flip. 
  3. Repeat until the mixture has been used up, adding olive oil to the pan as necessary.
