Chop the onion and finely dice the carrot. Saute them in the oil until soft. Add the peas and cook for a couple of minutes. I used runner beans cut small as we still have some in the garden. Add salt and pepper

Mix the flour with enough water to make a batter, about 120ml. I added a big tsp of grainy mustard, beacuse I had some and I like it.

Heat a frying pan and add a little of the oil. Add a quarter of the batter and cook for a minute or two until the top is set. Turn the pancake over and cook the 2nd side until marked with brown. Repeat with the rest of the batter until you have 4 pancakes. Keep them warm

Once the filling is cooked and seasoned, add the cheese and stir well. Divide between the 4 pancakes and roll up, serve 2 each.

Variations

You can vary this filling hugely, very much dependent on what you have in. You can add mushrooms and tomato paste, broccoli and grated swede, bean sprouts and soy sauce, some minced meat, top them with cheese and brown under the grill, or top with tomato sauce, as spicy as you like, or use a white sauce as it is or with cheese mixed in or on top.

The pancakes freeze well, so you could keep a meals worth in the freezer ready for a quick dinner.
