It’s amazing to me how many gluten free recipes you can find if you’re willing to step outside your culture. Koreans have mung bean pancakes, Mexicans have corn tortillas, Indians have lentil dosas, and I’ve discovered a new treasure trove of gluten free. Jewish Passover Recipes!! I haven’t really looked into it, but apparently Jewish people don’t eat wheat during Passover. So cool. They’ve been not eating wheat for so long, that they’ve come up with some amazing gluten free substitutions for bread. And since I’m on a quest for gluten free bread this week, I’ve borrowed from this Ancient culture. I love this recipe, I’m calling it a tortilla, because tortilla sells at our house, but I guess it’s actually a crepe (and it’ll be called a crepe when my mom visits. My mom loves crepes). It’s fast, easy to make and uses ingredients that aren’t too hard to find. I whipped up the whole thing in a blender and poured it into a lightly greased frying pan. Easy Peasy.
There’s a huge variety of potato starch crepes recipes, but most of them seem to be 1 part potato starch to 2 parts water and some eggs. Some recipes add a bit of sugar and vanilla. Some add butter or oil. This is a pretty plain version, but feel free to add things like lemon zest and sugar for sweet or spices and salt or Parmesan cheese for savory.
