Photo: CC/stu_spivack

This gluten-free, mung bean crepe recipe is time consuming, but if you love crepes as much as I do, you will not care. These mung bean crepes are so versatile, they can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They are naturally gluten-free and dairy-free, but they can be made corn-free, and meat free also.

  4. Pour in ½ cup of crepe batter, tilting and swirling the pan until crepe coats the bottom of the pan thinly and rises up the side of the pan.
