Gluten Free Spinach Crepes

I took the week off from blogging last week because my brain was feeling a bit overloaded; I’ve had too many ideas on the go at once lately and none of them were becoming finished products, they were just lingering around as something stressful on my to-do list! I’ve also had a super slow internet connection. So slow, in fact, that my last post took an hour and twenty minutes to show up online. Lame!

Anyway, today I’ve got something impressive but super simple for you – spinach crepes! They were inspired by Mission‘s Garden Spinach & Herb wraps, which are pretty delicious, but not gluten free.

You can eat these at any time of day & serve them with whatever you like. In the photo, I’ve used mashed pumpkin, some very thick cashew béchamel sauce & julienned granny smith apple.

Spinach Crepes
Makes 8 Crepes

2 C Baby Spinach, tightly packed
2 1/4 C Water
3 TBSP Canola Oil
2 C Chickpea Flour (Besan)
1/2 t Salt

  • In a blender, blend together the baby spinach, water & oil. Don’t sweat it if it’s not completely smooth, a bit of texture isn’t a bad thing!
  • Place your chickpea flour & salt in a mixing bowl, and slowly whisk in the green liquid from the blender.
  • Heat an 8″, heavy bottomed non-stick skillet on low heat. Spray with oil. When hot, add a ladle full of batter and swirl to spread across the pan. Cook until the batter appears to have dried out, then flip with a non-metal spatula and cook opposite side for no longer than a minute (you want to only *just* give it some colour).
  • Continue the above method for the remainder of the batter, using a fresh spray of oil each time.
  • Serve rolled up with your stuffings of choice!

  1. I LOVE the Green Mission wraps, I buy them alot- but this recipe! This recipe I am totally going to make!!! I love Spinach so this is perfect for me!
    Cannot wait to try my hand at making them, crepes is something I am no good at making, so it will be interesting!

    • Honestly… The hardest part is getting the heat right for your pan. If you screw up the first crepe, don’t get disheartened, just try again!

      P.s. YES @ those wraps! I’m eating the sundried tomato ones this week but I definitely prefer the spinach ones. Allllso, gonna post a chocolate version of these soon-ish 😉

Chow down on this!
