Vegan Brunch Recipes: GF Kale and Chickpea Crepes

April 29, 2015
In my mind, there is nothing better than a leisurely brunch on the weekend with my friends. However, most brunch menus are full of dishes containing eggs and animal protein. Why not ditch the vegan unfriendly brunch menus and make your own at home? These crepes are simple to make but also look elegant when plated up so they would be perfect to make when entertaining. Pair this with some roasted potatoes and a mimosa and you have yourself a delicious, animal friendly brunch.
