To make chickpea pancakes, sift flour in to a bowl. Whisk in water, oil and 1 teaspoon salt. Stand, covered, for 1 hour at room temperature.

To cook pancakes, heat a medium non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Brush with oil. Pour 1⁄3 cup batter into pan. Swirl to coat. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until golden. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

Meanwhile, to make mushroom ragu, combine boiling water and stock cube in a jug. Add dried mushrooms. Stand for 10 minutes. Heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add eschalot. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add thyme, mushrooms (except oyster and enoki) and garlic. Pan-fry for 3 minutes. Add wine, dried mushroom mixture, remaining mushrooms and Worcestershire sauce. Heat through.

To serve, top each pancake with ragu. Scatter with goat’s cheese. Garnish with extra thyme and micro herbs.
