Buckwheat is a gluten-free pseudocereal

The crepes are made from buckwheat flour. Buckwheat is a plant that belongs to the knotweed family. And although the name might indicate that “buckwheat” is a grain, from a botanical point of view it is not a grain, but a so-called pseudocereal.

Buckwheat is naturally gluten-free and is therefore a popular alternative for people with gluten intolerance.

Why is buckwheat so healthy?

Buckwheat is not only suitable for people with gluten intolerance or celiac disease, but of course also for people who can eat grains. But why is the pseudograin actually so healthy?

Buckwheat is high in fiber

Buckwheat contains a lot of fiber, which promotes healthy digestion. They can also lower cholesterol levels and ensure a quick and long-lasting feeling of fullness.

The pseudograin keeps blood sugar levels stable

Buckwheat has a lower glycemic index and can help keep blood sugar levels stable. The fiber and complex carbohydrates it contains are digested more slowly, which regulates insulin levels.

Buckwheat is rich in protein

Buckwheat is a good source of plant-based protein. The pseudograin contains all 8 essential amino acids that the body cannot produce itself. Among other things, they are needed for building proteins and building and repairing muscle tissue.

Buckwheat lowers blood pressure

Buckwheat may also help improve heart health. The flavonoids it contains, such as rutin, have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. By reducing inflammation, rutin may help lower blood pressure.

The pseudograin protects the liver

Buckwheat contains antioxidants that can reduce oxidative stress and protect liver cells from damage. In addition, buckwheat also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation in the liver and improve liver health.

Buckwheat improves brain performance

The pseudograin also contains a large amount of lecithin. They belong to the phosphoglycerides and are required for the formation of cell membranes, the production of neurotransmitters, the transmission of signals between nerve cells and the protection of the cardiovascular system.

Ingredients

For the crepes

For the cream cheese and horseradish dip

  • 150 g cream cheese
  • 1 TL freshly grated horseradish (alternatively from the glass)
  • 1 HE Olive oil*
  • 2 tomatoes
  • ½ Cucumber
  • Salt*
  • Pfeffer*

Instructions

  • For the crepes, melt 25 g butter. Mix the buckwheat flour with a pinch of salt and the herbs de Provence.

  • Whisk together milk, egg and water in a bowl with a whisk. Then add the flour mixture and the melted butter and slowly mix everything into a dough. Wash the dill, shake it dry and pick off the tips. Stir half of the dill into the dough.

  • For the dip, mix the cream cheese with horseradish, olive oil and the remaining dill tips (except for 2 tablespoons) in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Wash the tomatoes and cucumber and cut them into thin slices, removing the stems from the tomatoes.

  • Bake 4 thin crepes one after the other in a coated pan: Melt ½ teaspoon of butter in each, add 1 small ladle of batter and spread it evenly and thinly by swirling the pan. Bake the crepe over medium heat for about 2 minutes until the bottom is golden brown. Turn and brown the second side for about 2 minutes. Slide the crepe onto a plate. Bake another 3 crepes from the remaining dough.

  • Spread the cream cheese and horseradish dip on the crepes. Spread the tomatoes, cucumbers and the remaining dill on top, roll up and serve.

This is how you can easily modify the buckwheat crepes

Thebuckwheat flour*You can replace it 1:1 with wholemeal spelled flour. Then you have to add about 10% more milk to the dough.

For a vegan preparation, you can simply replace the butter 1:1 with a vegan butter alternative. You can also replace the milk with milk alternatives such as oat drink. Instead of the egg, you can also mix 5 g of cornstarch with a little water and use it like the egg in the recipe. And you can also replace the cream cheese 1:1 with a vegan alternative.

You can of course replace the dill with any other herbs such as parsley or basil.

And if you don't like horseradish or don't have it at home, you can easily leave it out or replace it with, for example, 1 teaspoon of medium-hot mustard (without sugar substitutes).

You also have a free choice of vegetables. For example, instead of tomatoes and cucumber, you can also use diced peppers or canned corn (without added sugar).

Of course, swapping the ingredients also changes the taste of the buckwheat crepes.

Tips on durability & storage

The buckwheat crepes should be eaten as soon as possible after baking, as they are not particularly suitable for long-term storage.

    Hallo Hannah,

    I think these light buckwheat wraps are perfect for spring. After I made your buckwheat granola, I noticed again that I don't do enough with buckwheat. It wasn't until Friday that I ate another really delicious buckwheat waffle at street food (stupid idea to go there during the sugar-free phase). But I didn't really turn out my last buckwheat wraps either; they were somehow too crumbly. Maybe your recipe will work better.

    greeting

    Hallo Hannah,
    I once read that buckwheat flour or buckwheat is quite indigestible if you don't let it soak. I don't see anything of a source time here. Did I mix that up? Why can't I use spelled flour? (I only tolerate wheat flour moderately... Sugar and wheat flour sometimes cause me pain, sometimes severe, even if I don't know why, but mostly unpleasant breezes. Spelled, on the other hand, works well. So it probably has less to do with the gluten than with the length of the carbon molecules to do.)

      Hello Janina,
      As far as I know, you can't let flour swell. I don't find buckwheat flour to be difficult to digest, but that depends entirely on the individual. Of course you can also use another flour, it should work just the same! 🙂

        Hello Hanna,
        that's great. Then I'll try it with buckwheat and if not, then my tried and tested spelled flour. (Interestingly, I can barely tolerate wheat, regardless of whether it's whole grain or not. - Whole grain is better, but not good. Spelled, on the other hand, is great. It can't be the gluten... It's also in spelled)
        Thank you for the recipe!

    Hallo Hannah,
    Thank you for the recipe. Is it true that the dough needs 175 ml milk AND 175 ml water (it doesn't appear in the list of ingredients, but it does in the recipe)? Does that seem like a lot?
