Crepe is French for “pancake”. But crepes are much thinner than pancakes and cook very quickly.
Crepes are easy to make that you think, many feel the need to buy crepes from restaurants and bakeries. Unlike most crepes ours are gluten free by using buckwheat flower, and these have some healthy and some surprisingly delicious ingredients to enhance flavor.
In episode 4 of Gluten Free Tasty, Host Phoebe Lapine demonstrates a buckwheat crepes recipe using leeks, spinach and Gruyere cheese. Don’t be scared off by the name buckwheat, as this is just the name of a gluten free flour!
