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!
