Add 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, 1 egg, beaten, 1 1/2 tablespoons milk, salt and pepper to taste and 1 tablespoon plain flour. (Add a little more flour if the mixture looks too thin.) Heat a little olive oil in a heavy frying pan and drop in the mixture by the dessertspoon if you want elegant little pancakes, by the heaping tablespoon for a more pedestrian size. Cook until brown and crisp on the underside then turn and cook the other side. Serve.
