Carbs & Rec: I MADE CREPES!!!

September 27th, 2014 12:23 pm by Kelly Garbato

We are getting down to the wire, Pawnee, and I am pulling out ALL THE STOPS.

(Just wait until you see what I’ve got planned for Tuesday.

For realsies!)

Today on Carbs & Rec, I attempt to do something I never thought I would-could-should do: make crepes!

And – spoiler alert – it was not a total disaster. Not a tear was shed nor a crepe destroyed.

No, really! Even the first one came out aces.

I know, right? Why didn’t I try this sooner?

The recipe is from Vegan Brunch, of course; I must have read Isa’s “Letter to a Young Crepe Maker” at least a dozen times before attempting her Lemon Cashew-Stuffed Crepes with Blueberry Sauce.

The verdict? Pretty delicious (and filling! I could only finish 1 1/2 crepes before throwing in the napkin!).

The cashew filling wasn’t my favorite – for whatever reason, mine didn’t come out terribly lemony – but luckily the blueberry sauce totally saved the day.

This was also my first time enjoying crepes, like, ever, so it was a day of virginity-losing for me. I like the crispiness of the crepe edges, and rolled food rocks, but in my heart I will always be a pancake girl.

Pancakes, waffles, crepes. In that order.

(Sorry I’m not sorry, Leslie!)

* A special shout out to Shannon, one of my favorite people on the internets and the inspiration for today’s post. I wasn’t even going to attempt this one, but she believed in me.

    That’s so awesome! I’ve bought two crepe pans but have still been too intimidated to make them. Amey at Vegan Eats & Treats did a great post a while back about crepe making. I totally need to get out my copy of Vegan Brunch and work some crepe magic!

    Hey, you’ve been so awesome and commenting on my blog, and I love your blog as well! I wanted to let you know I’ve nominated you for a Liebster award which you can find out more about it here http://bananacurlvegangirl.com/2014/09/27/vegan-mofo-2014-bonus-post-my-nomination-for-a-liebster-award/ Hopefully it’s not something you’ve done before…but I had a hard time determining that.

    Nice! I really need to make some crepes, seeing as I bought a special electric crepe pan last year that sits unused in the cupboard!

    I think I’m more of a crepe grrl than a pancake grrl although I make pancakes more frequently. I think it’s because I see crepes as a special occasion food!!
