Ingredients

Optional

  • ½ tsp chili flakes (I highly recommend this)
  • 1 bell pepper, red
  • ½ cup peas

Instructions

  • Add the flour, water, turmeric, salt, pepper and chili flakes (if using) to a mixing bowl and give it a quick blend using a food processor or blender. Leave it to settle for a few minutes while you heat up the oil or ghee in a non-stick pan. The batter needs to look very runny!
  • Dice the veggies finely and add them to the mixture.
  • Use a tissue or similar (a spray oil would work wonders here) to ensure the bottom of the pan is coated well in oil.
  • Add about a ladle of the mixture and veggies when the pan is hot – a medium heat should be just right.
  • Cook for about 3 minutes – the mixture will quickly start to firm. If you’re using two pans, you can make two pancakes at the same time.
  • Make sure you use a large pan (or pans) here, you’re aiming for thin pancakes. They’re MUCH easier to handle!
  • Use a large spatula to help you flip the pancakes, adding more oil underneath if necessary. After another 2-3 minutes your pancake will be ready!
  • Keep it somewhere warm while you repeat with the second pancake, adding more oil when necessary.
  • Done! Add your desired toppings and enjoy. Remember – it’s important to eat these pancakes warm – don’t let them get cold!

Serving suggestions:

  • Any chutneys (red onion is a favourite of ours) yogurt dip, hummus, avocado, guacamole, Branston Pickle (if you can find it where you are it goes incredibly well!).

  1. I have just cooked the veg muffins for 5 young ladies – all vegetarian – staying with me for bnb. Super and I love the sound of lots of the others I shall be doing for my grandchildren in half term – excellent, quick, practical and ingredients already in the fridge – no special shopping trips! A bonus all round!

    • Ah, that’s so great to hear, Anne! I’m pleased it all worked out so well. And I’m glad you’ve found others you like the look of!! Happy cooking, and thanks for writing 🙂

    • I run a small b&b and usually serve bacon & sausage (locally bred) but I want to change and do veg/vegan breakfasts instead. That’s the reason I’m checking out this site.

  2. Can wait to try them all.

    How the heck you guys use eggs, cheese in your recipes and call it vegetarian? How is that possible?

    • Hi Stanislaw, we use the generally accepted definition of ‘vegetarian’ – no meat or animal rennet. Our recipes without animal products are labelled as ‘vegan’.

      • Cheese is fine, eggs… I’d avoid calling it vegetarian.

        • Hi Nuno, thanks for the comment. We’re using the two simplest terms of labelling food – vegetarian includes ovo/lacto (so eggs and dairy), vegan is without any animal product whatsover. It’s the most widely accepted terminology at the moment.

    • Because these are not vegan recipes

    • Vegeterians dont eat meat and fish…..vegans dont eat any animal products like eggs and cheese. thats the difference.

      • Eggs are not vegetarian they are chicken embroys that arent fully devolped.

        • Hi Carrots, eggs fall into the broadest definition of vegetarian. They are not vegan though.

        • Carrots- eggs are not “embryos that aren’t fully developed”. Egg laying hens aren’t exposed to roosters, therefore the eggs produced are not fertilized and will never become an animal. Just like human females have to pass the eggs that aren’t fertilized, so do hens.

  4. This blog is really awesome for me I just try two recipes from it “Eggs in a Cloud” and “Runner’s Sandwich”, and both were just wow in taste. Thanks and keep sharing.
