Like peas? Like ricotta? Try these savory pancakes for dinner with a protein. They are great on their own or with a dipping sauce. Even if your child doesn’t like peas but likes ricotta cheese, they will eat these up. They are also a great way of getting more veggies in at dinnertime. The pancakes were slightly sweet, a bit creamy and crunchy on the outside. The recipe is super easy and can be modified to your liking. You can even use this recipe for leftover peas from a steamer bag.

Kid Friendly Tips: Your child can help put all of the ingredients in the food processor. Have your child pick a dipping sauce if they want something to dip it in. Substitute ricotta cheese for cottage cheese or sour cream. You can also substitute peas for another like vegetable.

1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
3 tablespoons of all purpose flour

1. In a food processor blend all ingredients together.

5. Pour batter onto non stick pan and flip until golden brown on each side. Yields 3 large pancakes.

Tip: While you are flipping pancakes keep the ones that are done on a cooling rack in the oven on low temperature. This will keep the pancakes nice, warm and crisp for when you are ready to serve.
