chard crepes

Swiss Chard is one of the first things to be harvested from the garden. It’s a lovely cool weather crop that is full of vitamin A and Vitamin C. These crepes have become one of the new favorites at our house. I especially like it because almost all of the ingredients come from the farm With the exception of the flour and spices, I can gather everything required just by walking out the back door!

Swiss Chard Crepes:

You will need:

10 or more leaves fresh chard, with stems cut off
1 small onion
3 cloves garlic
2 cups milk
4 eggs
2 cups flour
salt and pepper to taste

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat.
  • Place all ingredients except chard in a blender or food processor. Mix until well blended. Gradually add the chard and pulse until fully incorporated.
  • Remove pan from heat. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into the pan, tipping from side to side in order to cover the bottom.
  • Place back on heat and allow to cook for one minute, or until the edges begin to curl in. Flip and cook an additional minute.
  • Place finished crepes in a warm over or covered with a towel while the others cook.

Serve filled with re-fried beans, scrambled eggs or other fillings of your choice. This is a wonderful and flavorful alternative to a tortilla!
