Vegan Chickpea Crepes
"Are you team sweet or savoury crepes? Usually I’d go for sweet but since I’ve tried chickpea crepes I became a huge fan! They’re so light, easy to make, satisfying and nutritious thanks to chickpea flour that is rich in protein and fiber (and GF!). You can eat them as is or stuff them with some green goodness."
