Green Chickpea Pancakes with Oat Drink

Rudely Alternative. Five ingredients. Five steps.

Dinner party dilemma? Family to feed? Need a hit-the-spot homemade meal in a hurry? We’ve got your covered in rudely alternative style.
To celebrate the versatility of our dairy-alternative drinks, we’ve have teamed up with chef, writer and food stylist Anna Jones to launch five, five ingredient dinner recipes. They’re quick, easy and above all else, full of flavour, with each one using a different drink from our rainbow range. Here’s our Green Chickpea Pancakes made with Oat Drink for a subtly oaty flavour.

I love these pancakes. I eat them straight out of the pan like traditional pancakes topped with a fried egg, some flash fried vegetables and cheese. Or I keep them in the fridge, heat them up gently in a pan and use them like wraps or instead of chapatis for dipping into curries. I’ve included some topping ideas below. – Anna Jones
