These are the easiest flatbreads ever, made simply with chickpea flour, water, spinach, lemon juice, olive oil and seasonings. The batter gets made right in the Vitamix or blender and is then cooked like crepes in a skillet. I love to pile the flatbreads with a quick Greek-style salad of tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, feta and a creamy buttermilk herb dressing, but you could top them with any seasonal vegetables or dressings you’d like. While you can eat the chickpea flatbreads like wraps if you serve them right away while they’re still pliant, you can also make them ahead then eat them with a fork and knife. I also love to tear off pieces of the bread and use them to grab the salad, much like you’d eat Indian food with naan bread. It's a healthy and quick lunch or weeknight dinner!
This foolproof buckwheat crepes recipe results in perfectly tender crepes with crispy edges. Made with just buckwheat flour, the whole grain crepes are naturally gluten free and have a robust nutty flavor. I love to serve them with good quality sliced ham, cheese (go for gruyere, Comté or cheddar), apples and grainy mustard (see the Recipe Tips below!). They’re also awesome with fried eggs, or you can stuff them with your favorite veggies, such as Ratatouille and goat cheese, sautéed spinach and mushrooms, or creamy leeks and peas—the sky’s the limit! For a sweet version, try topping the crepes with sautéed pears or roasted berries, along with melted chocolate and whipped cream. Check out the French Crepes video above to see how to swirl the batter into the pan!

It’s a fast, mess-free, healthy main course that you can throw together on a busy weeknight or serve for a fancy dinner party.

These spinach and feta galettes are a mouthwatering veggie breakfast, or lunch, to satisfy and satiate. They work year-round, too. In the summertime, send your kids off with a healthy last-minute breakfast to eat on the school bus, pack them up for a picnic in the park, or serve as part of a dinner al fresco. Stick them in your kids’ (or your own) packed lunch to break up the monotony of sandwiches and wraps. In the winter? For me, the winter is a time when I cannot handle a cold salad for lunch, but I don’t always fancy a soup, or a big meal. Ditto for breakfast - something slightly warmed through made from buttery pastry ticks all my boxes! These galettes are the perfect light lunch, served warm with a fresh green side salad and a few juicy cherry tomatoes. Who am I kidding, any savoury pastry tarts are a go-to for me through those chilly months! The cheesy, buttery savouriness of flaking pastry and salty cheese complements the iron green tang of the spinach perfectly. These pastry morsels feel indulgent and satisfying, but allow you to feel slightly healthy at the same time. Those two things together? That equates to my favourite type of meal!
