Fermented split yellow pea pancakes

Updated: Oct 16, 2023

Yellow split peas offer a great source of plant protein​ and can reduce blood pressure, cholesterol levels and inflammation. This is a fun recipe that I love and it incorporates fermentation!

Ingredients (Recipe makes between 12-15 pancakes)

2 cups split yellow peas (pre soaked in lots of water for at least 3 hours and then drained)

½ cup water


1 & ¼ cup buckwheat flour

2.5 teaspoon salt

2 cups alt milk

2.5 cups water

1 tablespoon tamari

1 tablespoon toasted coriander seeds

1 tablespoon toasted fennel seeds

1 tablespoon toasted cumin seeds

½ teaspoon turmeric powder


~Blend the pre-soaked split yellow peas with ½ cup water until well incorporated and then place in a plastic Tupperware or glass bowl. Cover and leave in a warm place overnight or for around 8 hours throughout the day to ferment.

~Toast the coriander, fennel and cumin seeds in a pan until fragrant and then grind them in a pestle and mortar.

~In a large bowl whisk together the fermented split yellow peas with the rest of the ingredients - the batter should be a runny pancake consistency.

~Coat a pan lightly with some oil and place over a medium heat.

~Use a ladle (about a ½ cup) and pour the batter into the center of the pan. Cook for 4 minutes on one side and then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

Serve with your favourite hummus or dip. I served mine pancakes with a fava bean dip and a side salad.
