Fill these buckwheat crêpes with whatever you fancy: We love a combination of ham, cheese, arugula, and a fried egg.

Ingredients

  • 1  Cup  buckwheat flour
  • 3/4  Teaspoons  salt
  • large eggs
  • 1  Cup  milk
  • 1  Tablespoon  unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4  Cup  water
  • Toppings, as desired

Directions

Combine the flour, salt, eggs, milk, and melted butter in a blender, and blend until smooth.

Cover batter and let rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

When you’re ready to cook the crêpes, thin the batter with water, until it reaches your desired consistency.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly grease the pan with butter or oil, then pour in enough batter to coat the bottom of the pan — swirling the pan as you pour in the batter will help ensure an even coating.

Cook the crêpe for 1-2 minutes on the first side, until it’s golden and lifts easily from the pan. Flip it over and cook for 1-2 minutes on the other side.

Transfer cooked crêpes to a plate, stacking them one on top of the other, and covering them with a towel while you cook the remaining batter.

Fill as desired, and serve warm.

Buckwheat Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Buckwheat Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
