Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200⁰C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the tomatoes on the tray and lightly spray with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until the skins start to split.
  2. Meanwhile, process the chickpeas until finely chopped. Add the eggs and process until smooth. Sift the flour and baking powder together into a large bowl. Add chickpea mixture, milk, parsley and chives, whisk until smooth, season with salt.
  3. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium heat. Drop ¼ cup (60ml) of batter into pan and spread to make a 12cm pancake. Cook until bubbles appear and pop on the surface and lightly browned underneath. Turn pancake. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to a plate, cover. Repeat with the remaining batter to make 8 pancakes.
