They melt in your mouth. They make you swoon. They are the best vegan, low fat, AND gluten free version of crepes (blinchiki) you'll ever find. Yields 13 crepes
Ingredients
  • 1 cup fine garbanzo bean flour
  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 3 cups sugar free almond milk
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1-2 tsp honey or maple syrup
  • a pinch of salt (about ⅛ tsp)
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and run it for about 20 seconds, or until the mixture is smooth. [alternatively you can use a food processor, a hand mixer or even a whisk to accomplish this task]
  2. Pour crepe batter into a bowl
  3. Set up your crepe station--you will need a nonstick skillet, a plate where you are going to place the finished crepes, aflexible turner that would not damage your nonstick surface, a ladle or ⅓ cup measuring cup, a paper towel and 1 tbsp spoon of olive oil for greasing the skillet (don't worry, you will not use most of it, since most will get absorbed into the towel). While we are using a nonstick skillet, you will still need to occasionally (about every 3-4 crepes) grease the surface a tiny bit (see the video)
  4. Preheat the skillet on medium heat--you will know it is ready when you drip a drop of batter and it sizzles
  5. Dip the paper towel into oil and lightly grease the skillet
  6. Fill the ladle or the ⅓ cup container with batter, pick up the skillet, pour batter right in the middle and begin rotating the skillet so the batter is distributed evenly on the surface (it's all in the wrist)
  7. Place the skillet back on the burner and let the batter cook for 40-45 seconds. You will see the sides coming off the skillet and browning, without any moist (uncooked) batter spots on top--that's a sign that the crepe is ready to be flipped.
  8. Take the turner and gently move the edges off the skillet even more, so that you have enough to grab with your fingers.
  9. Flip the crepe over
  10. Cook for about 30-35 seconds, until the bottom side is thoroughly cooked and lightly browned, remove and place on a plate
  11. Repeat until you are done
