With the chaos of the move and our recent holiday, I haven’t cooked much for the girls, so the next couple of nights, I’m on Operation Batch Cook. I’ve set myself various recipe tasks. Last night, one of those tasks were to make Pea Fritters. It’s a recipe that both toddlers and older babies can try.

Most of you will know that there are two things that makes a Toddler run a mile at meal times. Something new & especially something green. Therefore I was taking a big risk with this recipe, but you just never know what a toddler will like from one minute to the next!

Once again Bella surprised me and she actually ate and enjoyed it! Flo did try it but she was more interested in shoving a cherry tomato in her gob. There was of course a moment of suspicion and hesitation, but once I told her that they were Tinkerbell Pancakes, she reluctantly tried one and history was made! Bella ate something new AND green!

Here is some photographic proof that she actually ate it! My Pea Fritters had a grilled Halloumi texture, so I’m wondering whether I over fried them! I think next time, I’ll make them thinner, so they have a softer texture. I did have a taste and they were actually quite tasty.

I found this recipe on Healthy Little Foodies page on Pinterest. Here are the details if you fancy giving it a try:

Ingredients

  • 400g frozen peas
  • 3 eggs
  • 180g self raising flour (just add a teaspoon of baking powder if you want to use Plain Flour)
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • 55g crumbled feta
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley

Method

  • Boil the peas for 4 minutes and drain
  • Add the flour, eggs, spring onion and peas and pulse until combined
  • Fold through feta cheese and parsley
  • Fry tablespoons of the mixture in a little oil for approx 2 minutes on each side until golden
