Swiss chard pancakes - FFwD



Leave it to the French to come up with a delicious, thick crepe recipe called farçous.  Very simple to make.  Milk, flour, eggs, garlic, chives, chard, shallots and some salt & pepper were combined in a food processor.

I made these with last week fish and when gradschool son came home, he used them like a taco.  A pancake, some fish, some sauce he declared it one of the best meals to date.

These swiss chard pancakes will be on our go to recipes when the swiss chard in the garden is ready to be harvested.  They were easy to make and delicious.   There are some in the freezer waiting to make their sunny green appearance at a moment's notice.  These are one of the reasons that I am glad that I am cooking along with French Fridays with Dorie.

  2. I think I would've enjoyed these more had I made them bigger and thinner. I made mine mini-sized.

  3. I think these would work really well a little thinner and bigger and then stuffed with something good. By themselves, they're a bit plain, but they can be really good combined with other flavors. Sounds like they went over really well! Nice work!

  8. Your son seems to be a good barometer for Dorie's recipes. He's right, I think, that this plain pancake can be twisted and folded and stuffed into a pocket-of-deliciousness. A great way for kids toget their veggies, also.
