Main Ingredients

How to cook Mediterranean Pancakes (version 1)

1 cup all purpose flour (or whole wheat flour)

2 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 cup milk (low fat too)

1 egg

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

How to do it

  1. Use your food processor and finely chop the bell pepper.

  3. Then add the bell pepper, the oregano and the feta cheese in the main ingredient bowl and mix well using a spoon.

  4. Place a nonstick pan over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Spread the oil evenly on the surface of the pan.

  5. Use a large spoon to add spoonfuls of the mixture to the pan.

  6. Cook (medium temperature) until the bottom side turns golden and when you see some bubbles form on the top side of the pancakes, it is time to turn them over.
