Gluten free and Vegan Rainbow Crepes
These simple to make crepes are not only fun but also delicious and made with wonderful gluten free buckwheat flour which is packed with B vitamins, it’s a good source of fibre and rich in minerals and various plant compounds, especially rutin. Buckwheat consumption is linked to several health benefits, including heart health and improved blood sugar control.
And you know me…I love anything colourful and by simply adding in beetroot, turmeric, green goodness powder, açai or spinach you get wonderful bright pancakes that makes any meal look amazing and kids and adults will love them.
They only require a few ingredients which makes it an even better choice to make.
Rainbow Buckwheat Crepes
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
Punch of salt
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Pink – 2 tsp beetroot powder
Yellow – 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Green – large handful of spinach or 1 tsp green goodness powder
Purple – 1 tsp açai powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp maple syrup (optional)
In a bowl add the buckwheat flour and the powder of choice with a pinch of salt. To make them sweeter, feel free to add in a little maple syrup and vanilla extract
Add in enough milk to make a really runny crepe batter (you can use water as well)
(To make the spinach pancakes, add some water to a blender along with the spinach leaves and blend together and use this as your water to form the batter)
In a pan over a high heat, ladle the batter and using the back of the ladle, swirl the batter until it’s a circle and smooth.
Cook until it’s begins to go golden and then flip over and cook the other side.
Remove from the pan and place on a plate covered with a tea towel to keep them warm
Continue with the remaining batter and use the pancakes topped, filled or rolled with your favourite fillings.
