Arrow-Crepes with Physalis

2 comments

As promised, this is another recipe where eggs have been effectively replaced by arrow root, a finest starch made from a South American tuber.

This recipe is dedicated to my friend Marina, aka Mariner or Loch Ness… the crepes are back, Ching  never abandoned me and the tea is always ready: we miss you :-).

Ingredients for the crepes:
3 large spoonfuls of arrow root
1 teaspoon of white flour
1 tablespoon of soy margarine (melted)
almond or soy or rice milk as needed
1 pinch of sugar cane
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of turmeric
1 teaspoon of Grand Marnier
Ingredients for the sauce:
1 handful of fresh Physalis
2 tablespoons of agave syrup
1 teaspoon of bitter orange jam
1 tablespoon of Grand Marnier
1 teaspoon of soy margarine

Method:
Place the dry ingredients in a bowl, then slowly add the veg milk (I used home-made almond milk) and the melted margarine (if there were uncontrollable clots, use a hand blender to restore the order 🙂 ). Let the mixture sit for a few minutes, then cook it in a pan, greased with margarine ( next time I’ll try with the crepière). Once the pancakes are ready, put the peeled Physalis in a pan, with 3 teaspoons of water, agave syrup, Grand Marnier, marmalade and cook briefly. Serve hot, accompanied by a good litchee tea.


Comment:

On the back of the package of Physalis I found a recipe I like, quite relevant to this one; therefore, I translate it into “veganese” below:

Ingredients:
250 gr of Physalis
2 pancakes
60 gr of sugar cane
40 gr of soy margarine
60 ml of white wine
pepper
mint leaves to decorate

Method:
In a sauce pan, cook the Physalis with margarine, until they’re soft and brownish. Add wine and sugar, then cook slowly until you get a sort of syrup. Add the pepper and pour the sauce over the pancakes, garnishing with mint leaves.

    I LOVE THIS! always wondered how to “deal” with Physalis, never tasted one! Thi is a good way to familiarize with them. Also, I love your recipe for crepes, I bought arrow root but it’s just lying there in my pantry….thanks for this!

    😀 how funny, you translated again the recipe in the back of the package… 🙂 🙂 🙂 Physalis have a strange good taste, a little bit like an apple but with a very light bitter aftertaste 🙂 🙂 try them!
