Pea Scallion Pancakes Offer a New Take on the Flapjack
Since I love me some pancakes, I was totally intrigued to learn about a new take on this dish, incorporating a savory twist. The recipe came from the April issue of Bon Appetit, the pancakes looking gorgeous and vibrant. I liked that the ingredients were super simple, and also included a generous helping of cottage cheese, that seemed to moisten the texture of these babies.
It was fun to lace them with the beautiful peas and fresh scallions too for some bite. While the recipe called for a rich butter sauce on top, I omitted that and instead made a generous helping of side salad with a vinegar based dressing. The whole thing was unique, refreshing and comforting too. We had an easy time polishing off nearly all of the pancakes, and I can happily say that this is a recipe I'll gladly repeat. See what you think when you try it too. Here's the recipe for Pea Pancakes.
