It is always a good idea to be inside cooking when it is raining.
This week I made Chive pancakes with stir fried greens, carrots and edamame. The chive pancakes were made with chickpea flour, and are very simple and fun to make.

Chive Pancakes with chickpea flower
1 cup chickpea flour
1 cup white flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup chopped chives
pinch of salt

Mix together all dry ingredients except for chives.
whisk in water.
Set aside for one hour.

Heat pan with enough cooking oil to coat the bottom.

Cook first side for approximately 3 min,
and cook other side for 1 min.
