Sweet, savory, or both: How do you like your crepes? I love just about everything on my crepes and can eat them for breakfast, lunch or dessert.

A few tips for making the perfect vegan crepes:

  • Be patient, and practice often! Making crepes is a bit of an art form, and even regular (non-vegan) crepes are a bit tricky and take a bit of practice. 
  • A non-stick pan is a must, and a crepe pan is even better and will serve you well if you make homemade crepes more than just once every blue moon.
  • There's an unspoken rule that for some reason, the first crepe always turns out bad. Don't get discouraged and give up! The second one will definitely be better! I'm no crepe expert, but my hunch is that is has to do with getting the pan absolutely perfect when it comes to both temperature and oil.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup soy flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups soy milk

How to Make It

Mix the dry ingredients and make a well in the middle. Pour in the soy milk and combine. The batter should be very thin.

Heat a non-stick crepe pan and lightly coat with a non-stick spray.

Pour in about 1/4 cup of the batter, tilting the pan so that the batter covers the bottom with a thin coating. Cook until it is browned from underneath and starts to pull away from the edge of the pan. Carefully flip it over and brown on the other side.
