Lentil Pancakes

Coming up with interesting finger foods for Spence can be a bit of challenge. I threw this together as a new way for the boy to get a bit of protein.

1 c. lentils
1/4 c. firm tofu
Handful of green peas
1-2 Tbs wheat germ
2 egg yolks
A few shakes of shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp or so oregano

1. Put all ingredients in a bowl. With a pastry cutter or perhaps a potato masher, mash the mixture.
2. Form into small patties the size of silver dollars.
3. Heat up a skillet with a little olive oil. Brown the patties on both sides.

Spence love...Love...LOVES peas. I added the peas just to keep a bit of the green color to grab his attention. These were a big hit. His little mouth stayed open to get more tidbits...just like a baby bird.
