Enjoy this easy, traditional Russian and French breakfast – only 4 ingredients!
I have fond memories as a child of getting up in the morning to my mom making delicious blini, or crepes. Now I’m sharing the love with my own family with my own tasty vegan crepes.
Whatever you call them: blini or blinchiki, which is Russian for pancakes, or the more common word crepe (crêpe), of French origin, they are absolutely tasty! These crepes have no milk or eggs – they are 100% plant-based, with only whole-wheat flour, plant-based milk, such as oatmilk, flax seed meal, and lemon or orange zest for flavor. There are only 4 ingredients. You will love these vegan crepes.
