Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.


Cornmeal or ‘Pule’ is often served with the ‘Saft’. The villagers enjoy dipping bread into it as well. This simple recipe looks like a tomato sauce but it is eaten as a side dish or main meal.

1 tablespoon oil
1 onion, chopped
1 rib celery, chopped
1 red pepper, julienne
4 ripe tomatoes, sliced
1 vegetable bouillon cube
Salt to taste

1. In a medium pot, over medium heat, warm oil and add the onion. Cook until clear and soft for 2-3 minutes.
2. Add celery and red pepper and stir for another 2-3 minutes.
3. On a lower heat, add the tomatoes, simmer for 20 minutes. Tomatoes will become soft. Add vegetable bouillon and salt.

Makes 4 servings.
