Green watercress Crepes (crepes de agrião)


Green watercress Crepes.jpgHey guys, these crepes are a game changer. They are sweet but with no sugar,  full of flavor and incredible easy.

  • 2 flax eggs
  • watercress  (usually I put about 100g)
  • 500 g of rice milk (or other)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100 g white flour
  • 150g wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp of organic coconut oil (or olive oil)

Putt all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Heat a non-stick frying pan with a little of olive oil or coconut oil. Add a ladleful of the batter and swirl the pan until the batter completely coats the base. Cook until the top begins to appear dry then flip carefully by loosening the edges with a butter knife and flipping it over in one swift movement. cook for another minute or so on the other side and then transfer to a serving plate. Serve warm or cold with your favorite topping.

TIPS: Serve plain, with fruit, jam, butter nuts, chocolate, salad, tomato, hummus, etc.

To store, place in an airtight container or ziploc bag with sheets of plastic wrap or wax paper between each crepe. Will reheat well the next day.

crepes de agrião
  • 2 ovos de linhaça 
  • agriões a gosto (normalmente ponho cerca de 100g)
  • 500 g leite de arroz (ou outro)
  • 1 pitada de sal
  • 100 g farinha branca
  • 150g. farinha integral
  • 1 c. sopa oleo de coco organico (ou azeite)

Triturar tudo. Aquecer uma frigideira anti aderente com um bocadinho de óleo de coco ou azeite. Assim que estiver quente, cobrir o fundo da frigideira com uma camada fina de massa. Usar uma colher para ajudar a virar. 

DICAS: Servir simples, com fruta, compotas, manteiga de frutos secos, chocolate, tomate, hummus, etc.

Guardar num numa embalagem de vidro, fica óptimo aquecido no dia seguinte.

    Interesting. I have never thought about using watercress to make a crepe. Neat idea!

    Great idea. My kids love green pancakes, which a normally do with spinach. I will definitely try with watercress. It’s always a good way to give an extra part of veggies without they noticing it. ?

      I do crepes very often, plain, with spinach, beetroot,… but this with watercress are my favorites 🙂

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. Only yesterday I tried to make a healthy vegan pancake and it totally didn’t work out.

        Agriao? Tive que procurar… Cress. Of course. In Mexico some tortillas are blue, made with blue corn. 😉

        • cook the beans

          Wow I missed that when I was in Mexico didn’t even know that blue corn was a thing 🙂 does it taste the same ?

            Aficionados will probably tell you it tastes different, but personally I don’t feel it. It is a pleasant taste.
