Cheez-y Crepes

We have been obsessed with crepes lately and there's good reason! First of all they are so so easy to make. All you need is buckwheat flour, water and salt. Easy. And you just fill em with whatever you fancy. We made pumpkin cream crepes a couple weeks ago and they were to die for.

We decided to go the savory route this time and made a cheez sauce using sweet potatoes.

Heres the recipe for the cheez sauce:

1 large sweet potato, steamed and peeled
1/2 cup almond milk or water
1 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp miso paste
1/2 tsp sea salt

Blend it all up and pour over a stir fry of whatever veggies you like. We used potatoes, broccoli and red onion. 

For the crepes:

1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup water
pinch of sea salt

Mix ingredients together and pour into a hot and oiled frying pan over medium heat. Cook for about 1 1/2 - 2 minutes on each side. Makes 3 crepes.

Spoon the filling onto one side of the crepe

classic combo of broccoli and cheese

Then fold it over and top with cheez sauce and crunchies

Cha cha cheezie

The crepe possibilities are endless!

We submitted this recipe to Ricki's Wellness Weekends, check it out!


  1. OMG I need these now! What a great savory crepe recipe, love it.

  2. Those crepes look so easy! I've had horrible luck making xgfx crepes, so I really want to try these.

  3. yumm. we eat "swedish pancakes" (crepes) a lot, but savory! yeah.

  4. Yum! I made my first ever cheezy sauce yesterday with butternut squash and nutritional yeast, and it was lovely! It's such a good idea to have it with veggies and crepes :)
