Savory Swiss Chard Crepes Recipe


  • 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


  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat.

  2. Place all ingredients except chard in a blender or food processor. Mix until well blended. Gradually add the chard and pulse until fully incorporated.
  3. Remove pan from heat. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into the pan, tipping from side to side in order to cover the bottom.
  4. 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.
  5. Place finished crepes in a warm oven or covered with a towel while the others cook.

  6. Serve filled with refried beans, scrambled eggs or other fillings of your choice. This is a wonderful and flavorful alternative to a tortilla.
