Herbed Pea Fritters

These tasty pea fritters are easy to make, and my kids gobbled these up for breakfast. You can enjoy them at any time of the day, though. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (300 grams) peas , defrosted
  • 2 scallions, chopped finely
  • 1/3 cup of coconut flour
  • 3 eggs (can use flax eggs; see substitutions)
  • 1 Tbsp of lemon juice
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • 2 Tbsp of fresh basil, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup of fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • Cracked pepper to taste
  • Oil for frying – macadamia, coconut or olive oil

Directions

  1. In a food processor or in a bowl blend and mash ½ of the peas with the remaining ingredients (except oil for frying) and combine well, then add in the rest of the peas partially mashed so you still get a chunky pea consistency and combine well.
  2. Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat then add the oil for frying
  3. Form the mixture into balls (about 2 Tbsp) each and flatten slightly and add them to the heated frypan and cook until slightly golden on each side and heated through. Be careful when turning them over.
  4. Serve with wedges of lemon, avocado and a side salad or eat with your hands!
