HeyHashi cofounder Fabienne missed crepes – until she created this beautiful and satisfying recipe for savory crepes made with garbanzo flour. If you’ve been missing crepes, too, give it a try and then let us know what you think!
Fabienne’s Savory Garbanzo Crepes
- 2/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill Garbanzo Flour
- 1 cup of almond milk (or use water)
- Himalayan Sea Salt (optional, to taste)
- 1 Large Pastured Egg
- 2 tsp. coconut oil
- Your choice of stuffing (salmon, mixed greens or anything yummy left over from diner)
In a blender, combine the garbanzo bean flour, milk, egg and salt. Blend on high until smooth.
Lightly grease a large non-stick pan with coconut oil and warm over medium-high flame. When the oil is hot, pour half cup of the batter into the center of the pan and carefully, rotate the pan so that the batter spreads out to form a circle. The crepe will begin to form immediately and it does not have to be a perfect circle. Cook the crepe until the edges begin to come away from the pan, flip the crepe with a spatula and cook on the other side for 40-45 seconds. Transfer the crepe to a serving dish. Prepare the rest of the crepes similarly and arrange in a stack.
Top each crepe with salmon and greens, or anything you love like hummus, avocado, carrots in the center and roll it. Serve garnished with the extra reserved mixed greens on the side and the mango dressing.
