Gluten Free Quinoa and Corn Flour Crepes

Servings: 1

Preparation duration: -1 minutes

Cooking duration: -1 minutes

 

Ingredients:

virgin coconut oil for cooking

1/2 cup corn flour (different from cornmeal)

1 tablespoon ground flax seeds (plus 3 tablespoons boiling water, whisked)

1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

1/2 cup quinoa flour

2 1/2 cups hemp, soy, almond, or rice milk

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

cup tapioca flour

1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

Equipment:

whisk

bowl

frying pan

spatula

oven

Cooking instruction summary:

  1. Whisk the dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk 2 1/2 cups hemp milk, flax seed mixture, maple syrup, and the melted coconut oil together. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently mix together. If the batter is too thick, add a few tablespoons of hemp milk at a time, up to 1/2 cup more hemp milk to make a pourable batter. (The batter should be thin enough to spread easily in the pan). Allow the batter rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Heat an 8- or 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add a small dab of virgin coconut oil for cooking. Pour about 1/2 cup batter into the skillet and at the same time, rotate the pan so the batter covers a thin layer on the bottom. Use small amounts of batter to repair any holes; work quickly and keep the crepe thin.
  3. Cook until the top of the crepe is dry, after about 1 minute, loosen the edges of the crepe from the pan with a spatula. Flip with your fingers or gently toss and flip (this may take a few attempts, but works best) and cook the other side for 30 to 60 seconds. Stack the cooked crepes on a plate. Keep them warm in a low oven or fill each crepe while it's in the pan, spooning the filling across the lower third of the crepe. Roll the crepe from the filling end or fold the bottom third over the filling, fold in the sides, then fold the crepe from the bottom up to make a pocket. Repeat the process, adding more coconut oil between crepes as needed, until all the batter is used up. Store leftover crepes in the

Food Joke

I had just finished visiting a friend in the hospital and stopped by a burger drive-through for lunch to eat on the way back to work. I ordered the #1 combo for $4.29. She said "that'll be $4.83, please drive forward." "$4.83? For a $4.29 meal? That's 54 cents tax!? That can't be right," my mind raced. Tax is 8 cents on the dollar in Huntsville, Alabama and for 4 dollars that would be 32 cents plus 1/3 of 8 cents would be 35 cents max. I'd heard of window workers overcharging drive through customers and skimming the money for themselves. Someone did just that to me at a Hardees couple of years ago. I didn't have my calculator watch so I got a pen and paper and did the long division since there were 2 cars ahead of me. Let's see ... 483/429 ... over 12 percent tax!? When I got to the window I handed her a 5 and said "what's the sales tax in Huntsville?" She didn't know. I said "$4.83 for a $4.29 meal is 12 percent tax. That can't be right. Can I talk to the manager?" She gave me my change and called the manager. So the manager comes over. I ask what the sales tax is in Huntsville, and she says 8 percent. I say that I just paid $4.83 for a $4.29 meal and that's over 12 percent sales tax. She got a funny look on her face and said that maybe the computer had rung it up wrong or had charged me for the biggie size . She admitted it was supposed to be 4.63, and opened the drawer to give me my extra change. "HA!" I thought to myself. "Six years engineering school has so heightened my mental mathematical adeptness that I can do percentages in my head and my superior intellect has foiled a feeble attempt by a drive-through worker to overcharge me!" So what did this mathematical wizard do next? I took the twenty cents she handed me, proud of my staggering genius, and smugly drove off without my food.
