Easy Gluten-Free Crepes

Easy Gluten-Free Crepes

These crepes are great if you’re avoiding the bread for lunch and are also a good brekkie alternative. Stuff them with your favourite filling - I would include a good quality protein and lots of veggies.

Ingredients
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 scoop Modere Green Qi
1 egg, whipped lightly
1 cup of your choice of milk

Method
1. Sift flour and Green Qi in a bowl well.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg and milk.
3. Combine wet ingredients to dry and mix well. Let sit for 1 minute.
4. Heat 12-inch skillet on medium-low. Grease well with oil.
5. Using a ½ cup measuring cup, scoop crepe batter onto skillet.
6. Cook for 2 minutes, flip and cook for 1 more minute until lightly browned.
7. Enjoy! X

* Makes 3 large crepes. If using a smaller skillet, reduce the amount of batter to 1/3 cup or 1/4 cup for each crepe.
For savoury crepe filling, try scramble eggs with veggies or sweet try adding fresh fruits and yogurt.

Sugar-Free Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast

Sugar-Free Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast

Makes approx 4 cups:

1 cup quinoa, rinsed
3 cups unsweetened almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
1 med green apple chopped small (save some for garnish)
stevia to taste
1/2 cup raw walnuts, chopped
4 tbsp raw sunflower seeds
1 cup fresh organic blueberries
Optional - chopped pecans or almonds, hemp seeds

Method:
Combine quinoa, almond milk, cinnamon, allspice in medium sauce pan.

Bring to a boil and then place lid on pan and reduce to low heat. After 5 mins stir in chopped apple and simmer for approx 5-7 mins longer.

Stir and check for remaining liquid and if most is absorbed then remove from heat, leaving lid on pan and let rest for 5 mins to absorb rest of the milk. If when you peek, there is still lots of liquid, simmer for 3-5 mins longer but keeping a close eye over the pot as this mixture can easily burn if left to boil dry, then let it rest for 5 mins.

Taste for sweetness and adjust to your liking with 3-5 stevia drops. You may not need any additional sweetener as apple & stevia do add a nice sweetness that may be just perfect for you. Be cautious as even these natural sugars will spike your blood sugar levels and you want to minimize this.

Top each serving with walnuts, sunflower seeds, blueberries and remaining chopped apple.
