Directions

  • Ready In

  1. Combine eggs, milk, and 2 tablespoons butter in a blender. Add buckwheat flour, all-purpose flour, and a pinch of salt; puree until smooth. Allow batter to rest in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in cremini mushrooms and cook until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and spinach; cook and stir until wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Set the filling aside.
  3. Melt 1 teaspoon butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Pour about 1/4 cup batter per crepe (depending on the size of your pan) into the hot skillet and immediately tilt and swirl the pan to evenly distribute batter along the bottom. Cook until the center is set and edges begin to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle 1/4 of the filling in the middle of each crepe and sprinkle each with 3 tablespoons Gruyere cheese. Reserve remaining Gruyere cheese. Fold the crepes in thirds over the filling, forming triangle shapes. Serve crepes with remaining Gruyere cheese sprinkled on top.

This is a a lovely savory crepe and the buckwheat crepes were a nice foundation for the simple filling. There are three issues to pay attention to. The prep/cook time is far from 15 minutes. Especially if you consider the 8 hours or more chill time for the batter. The other thing you need to be aware of is the batter separates while chilling so give it another whirl in the blender before you try to cook the crepes. The filling seemed underseasoned so I would add some fresh minced garlic to the pan when sauteeing the vegis. I think tarragon would be another nice addition to up the flavor. Thanks for sharing!
