Sorry dudes, I know that is one terrible pun. But, since I left the Halloweenie-themed foods to the experts like Robin, I had to attempt to make my completely innocuous Halloween brunch sound at least a little spooky. And even though the most ghoulish thing about them is the scary blue stains they leave on your teeth, the cashew-filled crepes with blueberry sauce from Vegan Brunch were a perfect start to the day.
Behold the crepes...of doooooom.
Not too frightening? That's good. You should've seen the first couple crepes that went in the
I made these with whole wheat pastry flour, and there's really no t a lot of sugar in the whole recipe. Plus you get a fair amount of protein from the cashews, which are ground into a creamy ricotta-type filling.
My biggest tip for crepe-making would be this: don't even think about flipping that crepe until it is sliding around in the (nonstick!) pan of its own free will when you tilt the pan. If you try to get your spatula under it before it's moving around freely, it's gonna tear. And then your ravenous Boston terrier will be happy, but you will be sad and crepeless.
Nobody wants that, least of all this little pumpkin and her tiger cub buddy.
