Buckwheat crepes

Method

For the ratatouille

  • Cut the eggplant and the zucchinis into 1 cm cubes and finely chop the onion and the peppers.
  • In a pot, heat half of the olive oil over medium heat and sauté the eggplant and the onion for 3-5 minutes, until they are softened. Remove them from the pot and set them aside.
  • Add the remaining olive oil to the pot and sauté the peppers and the zucchinis for 3-5 minutes, until they are also softened.
  • Transfer the vegetables you set aside back into the pot and mix them all together with a wooden spoon. 
  • Add the canned tomatoes, salt, pepper, the chili flakes, the capers, the sugar, and stir. 
  • Let them come to a boil, cover the pot, and lower the heat. 
  • Simmer for 20-30 minutes, until the vegetables are tender. 
  • Remove the pot from the heat and let the ratatouille cool.

For the crepes

  • Heat the milk and the butter in a pot over medium heat. As soon as the butter melts, remove the pot from the heat and let the mixture cool. 
  • In a bowl, mix the flours and the salt with a spoon.
  • Add the milk mixture into the bowl and whisk until the ingredients are homogenized. 
  • Add the eggs one by one and wait for each one to be incorporated before adding the next, whisking constantly until you get a uniform and thick batter. 
  • Refrigerate the batter for 30 minutes to rest. 
  • With a pastry brush, grease a 20 cm frying pan with sunflower oil, add a little of the batter, and tilt the pan to spread the batter over its whole surface. 
  • Cook the crepe for 3 minutes into the pan, until it is golden, and flip it over for 2 more minutes until it is cooked on the other side, too.
  • Remove the crepe from the pan and follow the same process for the whole batter. 
  • Fill the crepes with the ratatouille and serve with yogurt and finely chopped parsley.

Tip

Apart from the ratatouille, you can fill the crepes with any other filling you like, savory or sweet.
