    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Cook peas in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a bowl; mash peas using a fork.
    2. Mix flour, Parmesan cheese, egg, milk, baking powder, salt and pepper into mashed peas, adding more milk or flour until mixture holds together. Shape pea mixture into rounds about 2cm thick.
    3. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat; fry pea fritters until golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
