What's for dinner - Vegan chickpea pancake with lentils

Chickpea flour pancakes with veggie lentil filling 

Now that we’ve just about quit eating meat we’ve been trying to find healthy substitutes and recipes that will be a good source of proteins, fiber, etc. This and the fact that I’m breastfeeding was very motivating. I found this recipe the other day and it was just ideal. I bought chickpea flour online and it’s been sitting there waiting to be used. Surprisingly, it’s easy to cook and really delicious. I recommend this recipe to those who want to make their vegan diet a bit more interesting and tasty.

What you need: 

For the pancakes:
1 cup chickpea flour
1 cup sparkling mineral water
0.5tsp salt
0.5tsp turmeric
2 tbsp olive oil

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate for 30mins

For the filling:
1 cup of red lentils (cooke according to the package instructions)
0.5 small onion
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 ripe tomatoes
small zucchini (or bell pepper)
spices (I used sweet paprika, curry and cayenne pepper but the original recipe includes cumin)

Chop and fry the onion and garlic, add chopped tomatoes, zucchini and all the spices, cook until soft, add lentils and mix together.
