Chickpea Savoury Pancake made with Hemp Seeds
This dish is so easy to cook and a great gluten-free, vegan alternative to your normal flour-based savoury pancake or omelette. Also, can I just say, savoury pancakes are definitely underrated? As opposed to bakes and bread, this is much quicker to whip up and you can even make the mix the night before and just take it out of the fridge in the morning and pop it onto the frying pan. You then have yourself a fresh, warm, hearty, comforting healthy breakfast even on days where you don’t have a lot of time to cook. Plus the Hemp seeds are such a good addition to give you a boost of Omega-3/Omega-6 fatty acids, all 9 essential amino acids,digestible protein, calcium,potassium, phosphorous, riboflavin, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin B12, folic acid,vitamin D, magnesium, iron, and zinc (Talk about health food!).

1. Measure up 1/2 cup of chickpea flour using a measuring cup and pop it into a
medium sized mixing bowl.

3. Add the milk and whisk together the batter. Make sure it’s not too thick and
has a pancake batter consistency which is easy to pour.
4. In a medium sized heated frying pan (spray with cooking oil if it’s not a non-stick frying pan) pour in the batter to form a large pancake. Cook on medium heat until batter is no longer runny, flipping it over once one side is cooked.
(approx. 30 secs each side depending on the pan you use)
5. Fold the pancake over one side and serve on a plate
