Nothing like a light delicious crepe to start your morning – fill with yogurt and berries for a perfectly fresh breakfast.

This batter is very versatile.  I usually triple the recipe and refrigerate for several mornings worth of fresh crepes.  The cooked crepes are freezable as well.  Fill with yogurt and berries, your favorite dessert or savory filling, or just nosh on them plain with your morning coffee. 

  • 1 cup vanilla coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 ½  tsp. melted butter
  • pinch of salt
  1. In a large bowl combine all ingredients and blend with an immersion blender (or just put into a regular blender!).  Cover and place in refrigerator for 1 hour (or overnight).
  2. Heat a skillet (I use this spectacular pancake/crepe skillet that is heavy and magnificent) over medium heat, and brush with oil.  Pour crepe batter onto pan, and spreading the batter by tilting the pan until it is completely coated.  Cook until golden brown, flipping once. No need to oil the pan again, but repeat with remaining batter.

Enchiladas

 

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 8 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. basil
  • 1 tsp. chipotle
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. dried Parsley
  • 1.5 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 cup salsa (the quality of the salsa definitely makes a difference in this sauce)
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 (7-ounce) cans of roasted green chilies
  • 2 (14.5-ounce) cans of diced tomatoes (I use no-salt added)

1. In a medium size saucepan, heat a small amount of olive oil over medium-high heat.  Sauté onion and garlic until onion is translucent and tender. Add spices and toast (3-4 minutes)

2. Add salsa, broth, chilies and tomatoes.  Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.  Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth (you can allow this to cool then transfer to a blender if necessary).  Reduce heat to low, and continue to simmer until desired consistency is achieved.
