Pea Pancakes

Liven up the classic crêpe with nutritious peas and get one of your five-a-day at the same time! This recipe is also great for encouraging kids to eat peas by sneaking in some in the pancake batter.
A batch of these pancakes can make for a special breakfast or brunch because you can enjoy them with a variety of toppings, both sweet and savoury.

For example, you can top a couple of crepes with a poached egg, feta cheese, avocado and some fresh herbs like parsley, mint or coriander. You can also enjoy them on their own with a bit of butter.
Mix and match the peas with some sweet berries, bananas, peaches (or whatever fruit you prefer) for a starter OR dessert that will get your taste buds tingling!

Once you master this recipe you can experiment with the batter and make the pancakes fluffier – think more American-style pancakes, by adding less milk and more flour.
