Sweet, Sweet Love...

Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s Day) is a great excuse to try out a fun new recipe to share with loved ones or enjoy all to yourself. This month, we are featuring a recipe for Tahini Maple Cream Crepes from Jenné Claiborne (@sweetpotatosoul), perfect for a festive brunch. These crepes are dairy-free and include tahini, which is a paste made from sesame seeds. Tahini has a rich, savory flavor that adds a lot of depth to a dish, while also offering an impressive nutritional profile.

Ingredients:


Crepes:

1 ½ c unbleached all purpose flour

1 tbsp arrowroot powder or cornstarch

1 tbsp white sugar

¼ tsp sea salt

1 c unsweetened plain non-dairy milk

1 c sparkling water OR regular water

2 tbsp neutral flavored oil

Vegan butter for cooking


Tahini Maple Sauce:

¼ c tahini (or creamy nut butter)

2 tbsp maple syrup

1-2 tbsp non-dairy milk

½ tsp cinnamon

Pinch of salt


To serve:

Fresh fruit, powdered sugar, cacao nibs or chocolate chips, fruit preserves



Instructions:


Crepes:

  1. To make the crepes, sift the flour and cornstarch into a large mixing bowl.

  2. Stir in the sugar and salt.

  3. Make a well in the center and add the non-dairy milk, water, and oil. Whisk well.

  4. Warm a skillet on medium heat, and grease with vegan butter.

  5. Ladle about 1/3 cup of the crepe batter into the center of the pan, then immediately pick the pan up and rotate it to help the batter spread into as thin a layer as possible.

  6. Return it to the heat, and cook for about 3 minutes, until the crepe has dried out.

  7. Use a large pancake spatula to flip. Cook on the other side for about 30 seconds to a minute.

  8. Transfer the cooked crepes to a plate lined with a kitchen towel, and cover with another towel.

  9. Continue with the remaining crepes. I think I made around 12.

Tahini Maple Sauce:

  1. Combine the ingredients in a bowl and whisk, or blend a fork until creamy.

  2. Fill the crepes with the sauce, fresh fruit, and other additions.
