The more green stuff on your plate, the better. These crepes are gluten-free, protein-packed, and rich in detoxifying chlorophyll. I like them with an egg, lots of smoked paprika + a few fresh mint leaves on top.


  • 1/4 c pureed spinach
  • 1/2 c buckwheat flour
  • 1 Tbsp ground flax seed  
  • 2 eggs
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • smoked paprika, to taste  
  • grass-fed butter, or coconut oil, for frying 

Preparation Method

  1. With your blender, or food processor, whip spinach into a beautiful, bright green puree. 
  2. Transfer to a medium size bowl, and add flour, eggs, paprika, sea salt and ground flax. 
  3. Mix to combine, adding a touch of water if needed for consistency. 
  4. On the stove top, set your favourite stainless steel, or cast iron pan on medium heat – then, add a big spoonful of butter or coconut oil.  
  5. Pour in your batter very, very modestly, to form a very, very thin layer across the entire bottom of the pan. Gently flip when little bubbles surface, or it looks well formed. Cook for a minute (or so) on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter. 

Top with an egg any style, and roughly chopped, fresh mint leaves. Add anything else you like: sliced avocado, salsa, or a big dollop of Greek-style yogurt.
