Hello again to our favorite people in the whole wide world. Thanks again for supporting us here in The Broiler Room. Your great taste is never lost on us.
First up, we’ve got some great news: the US has lifted its ban on avocados coming north from Mexico. Now we can all collectively breathe a sigh of relief. Don’t know about y’all, but over at Bad Manners HQ we were reconsidering our whole lifestyle if that ban had any staying power. Consider celebrating this weekend with one of the bazillion recipes that calls for avocado up on our site. We made the obligatory avo toast as is legally required as denizens of LA.
Secondly, we’ve never see so many people so fucking excited about our chickpea tofu recipe as y’all were last week. It’s a certified banger and we shoulda known that The Broiler Room crowd is always down to try new shit. We sometimes get anxiety when we ask people to go to the store and search for an ingredient that might be tricky to find. Your time and money are precious and we won’t ask you to run out and buy something dumb like a $20 bottle of chlorella to toss on your popcorn unless we thought that shit was actually worth it. FUN FACT: IT’S FUCKING NOT.
Actually, when we turned in the manuscript of our first book the feedback our editor gave us was that we were “repeatedly using ingredients in multiple recipes”. Ummm, yeah that’s by design sweetie. Why should anyone hafta run out and buy a new spice or oil for every single recipe? We didn’t see the point. We write how we cook and never want ANY ingredient to be used once and then just sit in the pantry waiting to expire. Life is expensive enough without staring at a bottle of walnut oil for 5 years wondering why the fuck you grabbed that in the first place.
SoOoOoo in that spirit, we whipped up a new recipe for y’all to put that chickpea flour you bought last week to use again: Banana Crepes. They’re a lil springier than traditional crepes and might come out a lil lacier than you’re used to but hot DAMN if they’re not delicious. Just think of ’em as a crepe that occasionally wants to pass for injera.
Maybe you’ve had a crepe stuffed with bananas but have you ever had that flavorful motherfucker IN THE BATTER? We didn’t think so. So put that bunch of browning bananas on your counter to use because they’re about to get classy with an added protein boost.
Makes about 8 crepes
