Buckwheat Crêpes with Wild Mushrooms and Gruyère

  • TOTAL TIME: 40 MIN
  • SERVINGS: Makes 8 crêpes
  • FAST
  • VEGETARIAN

These crêpes make a great vegetarian meal when served with a lightly dressed green salad.

  1. 3/4 cup buckwheat flour
  2. 2 large eggs, beaten
  3. 1 1/3 cups milk
  4. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  5. 2 medium shallots, thinly sliced
  6. 16 ounces mixed wild mushrooms, thinly sliced
  7. Sea salt
  8. 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  9. 1/4 cup white wine
  10. 2 cups coarsely grated Gruyère cheese
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the buckwheat flour with the eggs and half of the milk until lump-free. Add the remaining milk and whisk until smooth. Refrigerate the batter for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat the 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the shallots and cook over moderately high heat until soft, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and cook until tender, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute longer. Add the wine, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet and cook until the liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes.
  3. Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet and lightly brush with olive oil. Add 1/4 cup of the batter to the skillet and swirl to coat the pan. Cook over moderate heat until the edges begin to pull away from the pan, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Flip the crêpe and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute longer.
  4. Sprinkle the crêpe with 1/4 cup of cheese followed by 1/4 cup of the mushrooms. Fold the bottom flaps of the crêpe to form a cone. Slide the crêpe onto a serving platter. Repeat with the remaining batter, brushing the pan with oil as needed. Serve the crêpes immediately.
