Buckwheat gluten-free Crêpes à la Maison
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking: medium heat for a few minutes
400g Buckwheat Flour
Pinch of Salt
1.2 litres milk
150g melted butter
Bag of Spinach
2 tablespoons low fat crème fraiche
Knob of coconut oil
Mix the batter ingredients into a bowl and beat to a smooth paste. Set aside. Chop and fry mushrooms in a little oil, add spinach, crème fraiche and parsley. Cook for another 2 minutes and remove from heat.
Put butter in separate non-stick frying pan, heat and roll it around to cover the surface. Spoon some batter into the pan and roll it out to the edges. Cook until the base is golden then turn it over and cook the other side. Add mushroom mix across one half of the crêpe, then carefully fold the empty half over the fillings. Cook for a few minutes more. Gently tilt pan to gently slide the finished crêpe out onto a serving plate. Serve immediately.
Top Health Benefits
- Buckwheat is a great fiber rich, gluten free alternative to wheat and a traditional French classic from Brittany. It’s rich in flavonoids, extending the action of vitamin C and acting as an antioxidant. Diets that contain Buckwheat have been linked to a lowered risk of developing high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
- Mushrooms, Eggs and spinach are a fantastic source of B Vitamins and Iron (the water soluble ones that get depleted especially during times of stress!) Spinach is particularly nutrient dense, its no wonder it was Popeye’s meal of choice! It contains twice the amount of iron of most other greens and is one of the most alkalinizing foods. Iron and B Vitamins are integral to healthy hair and skin function.
- Eggs offer a low-cost nutrient packed protein punch, keeping you feeling fuller longer and helping the body repair damaged cells!
