  • Broccoli, red onion & preserved lemon crêpes

    • dinnermints on May 19, 2015

      I don't think this recipe was very well-conceived. It would be better to know how many cups/oz of broccoli florets were needed instead of how many pounds of broccoli to be cut into florets. I ended up with 7 cups of florets, which seemed to be much more than you'd need to fill eight crepes (I increased the rest of the ingredients by half). I had some preserved lemon on hand, but otherwise the author suggests lemon zest - which doesn't account for the salt that would be lost for the substitution, and I ended up needing to add some salt in addition to the preserved lemon. The garbanzo crepes were good, but if I'm going to go to the trouble of making crepes, the filling needs to be much more compelling than this one.

      Fabulous! Made by hand with whisk. No optional flavorings.

  • Salad basket crêpes with grapes, blue cheese & hazelnuts

    • mjes on July 31, 2021

      I completely ignored the instructions for making a buckwheat galettes and went with the method a cooking instructor from Brittany taught me ... the one her Mother taught her when she was four. Yes, a galette makes a great base for a simple blue cheese and fruit on greens lunch salad. It was so good I had to try it again on a socca base. Well, I read the instructions for the "garbanzo flour crepes" and went elsewhere for a thin socca recipes. Yes, it also made a great base for the salad. These have become a summer staple with endless variations on the salad and on the crepe.
