Serves 4 (makes 24)


250g frozen peas

250g halloumi, cut into small cubes

Preheat oven to 120C. Put peas in a large bowl, cover with boiling water and stand for 2 minutes. Drain. Put peas and mint 
in a food processor and pulse until peas 
are roughly chopped.

Whisk eggs and milk together in a jug. 
Put flour in a bowl. Add egg mixture to 
flour, whisking until well combined and a smooth batter forms. Add pea mixture, green onion, haloumi and parmesan. Season with salt and pepper. Stir until well combined.
