Bea, tried your crepes today and they were great in taste. I had a little trouble with
the thickness of the liquide. Don't know what I did wrong but it was very thick and it would not spread when you tilt the pan. I added water and more water and more water until I had it to were it would spread. And they still tasted good. Thou I did notice I had to cook them for a while because it seem that the middle was not done. Or they suppose to be thick? Which would be ok it's just I couldn't get them to spread when I tilted the pan. Please help and let me know what I did wrong. I still may sandwichs for my daughter. Also I not sure how I'll find your answer because I don't usually use the formus and I don't really know how to use them. But the taste of these crepes were sooooooo good I just need to know what I did wrong. I hope I can find your answer on this formus.

michellebelleMemberI love this crepe recipe from Grain Free Living : http://www.grainfreeliving.com/pancakes/84-grain-free-crepesflat-bread
Option 1 is Deeeeee-lish!!!
This recipe gives you three in one with a foolproof mix that you can use for sweet or savoury crepe or flat bread.
Use Any combination of the following (measurements are a rough guide only):
OPTION 1: 1 cup of Roasted Buckwheat Kernels, finely ground in coffee Grinder, About 1/8 to 1/4 cup of pure Potato Starch (acts as an egg replacer and also “lightens” the taste and texture – don't use too much though, it is better to use less potato starch than more – I usually put in one or two a heaped dessert spoons)
OPTION 2: 1/2 cup of Roasted Buckwheat Kernels, 1/2 cup Quinoa, ground in coffee Grinder, About 1/8 to 1/4 cup of pure Potato Starch
OPTION 3: 1 cup Quinoa, ground in coffee Grinder, About 1/8 to 1/4 cup of pure Potato Starch
And then add:
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp bi-carb
1 tblsp Olive Oil
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
Enough filtered water to make mixture a runny cream consistency.
1 egg (optional – they taste great without it).
Combine ingredients well. Add Oil and vinegar last. Let sit for as long as possible – overnight will produce the best flavour, but it is OK to use right away.
Pour into non-stick frypan as you would a crepe – and cook until brown. (the second side does not brown in the same way as the first)
Fill with avocado and salad with a drizzle of vinaigrette and seasonings of choice. You can also add some slices of cooked meat or any other filling of choice – really yummy!!!!December 11, 2010 at 10:03 pm #8866
Isn't Buckwheat Gluten ????????
And excuse me but what is bi-carb –
I'm not much of a cook, I cook because I've had too, not because I want.
Did love to bake though, which I truly do miss.
I also miss my cereal and tortillaDecember 12, 2010 at 3:34 am #8867
If you like to bake, you might like, “The Gluten free Almond Flour Cook Book” , by Elana Amsterdam (I think that is her last name) I love that cookbook. If you have candida issues you can easily leave out agave and use stevia or xylitol.December 12, 2010 at 1:47 pm #8868
No, buckwheat is not a grain. Contrary to its name it is actually a seed. More popularly known as pseudo-cereals or pseudo-grains. Buckwheat is similar to amaranth and quinoa which are also psuedo-cereals. Just be careful for cross-contamination with other grains. It is quite delicious and gives you that fix when you are in need of some high carb food ;))
And thanks Farmwife for the cookbook info!
