For this recipe I’ve been inspired from a BLW (Baby Led Weaning) page on Facebook and I’ve adjusted it to my baby since the recipe had cheese in it and my little one wasn’t ready for milk products yet (allergy). Why baby fun pea pancakes? Because they are beautifully green and small and fun to eat.
Baby Fun Pea Pancakes for toddlers and older kids too.
Sooo, I’ve made a batch for my baby, and the older sister was so anxious about how they looked and smelt that she asked me to make another batch for her too. What I’ve changed was adding about 2 anchovy fillets to the food processor where I’ve mixed everything. Boy was that tasty!!
Baby Fun Pea Pancakes
- 1/3 cup sweet peas frozen or fresh
- 1 green onion chopped
- 1/8 cup cilantro or parsley chopped
- 1 clove garlic crushed
- 2 quail eggs
- 1 tbsp goat cheese grated
- sourdough bread crumbs
- salt and pepper to taste optional
- 1 tbsp whole-wheat flour optional
- 1 tbsp water optional
Boil sweet peas for about 4 mins
Add the sweet peas, green onion, garlic, eggs, goat cheese, bread crumbs into a food processor and blend until smooth
Add seasoning or skip that if making them for a baby under 1 year
Adjust the desired consistency either with water, or whole-wheat flour
Pour a small amount into a non-stick pan (sprayed with some oil) to result small pancakes
Cook on medium to low heat on both sides
This time I added some whole-wheat flour since I wanted the batter to be thick (as you can see on the spoon in the images) so that the little one wouldn't smash them easily. I've also tried the recipe adding 1 or 2 anchovies and then I skipped the salt and they were delish!
