Buckwheat Crepes With Onions Apples & Che Recipe
18 buckwheat crepes, up to 20
6 lb yellow onions
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon salt, more to taste
1 black pepper
1 1/2 lb tart green apples, about 4, use pippins or g
3 tablespoon calvados
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Prepare the Buckwheat Crepes and set aside.
Peel the onions, cut them in half lengthwise, and then slice them
thickly. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil and a tablespoon of butter in
each of two large non-stick pans, and divide the onions between them.
Sprinkle about Half a tsp. of salt over each batch and cook the
onions on medium heat, stirring occasionally, until they are golden
brown. This will take about 45 minutes. Add black pepper to taste.
Meanwhile, peel the apples, cut into wedges, and slice the wedges
crosswise. When the onions are lightly browned and much reduced in
volume, consolidate them into one pan. Add the Calvados to the onions
and stir quickly to deglaze the pan. Add the sliced apples, and a
touch more salt if needed. Continue cooking, stirring often, until
the liquid is entirely gone, the onions are a deep caramel color, and
the apples are tender.
Spoon 2 to 3 rounded tablespoons of the onion mixture across the
center of a crepe, then sprinkle about 1/2 ounce of grated cheese
over it. Roll the crepe loosely over the folling and place it seam
side down on a buttered baking sheet. Continue filling and rolling
crepes until all the onions and cheese are used up. You should have
at least 16-18 filled crepes. Reserve any leftover crepes for another
Cover the crepes loosely with a piece of aluminum foil, and bake them
in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, or until they are hot through
and the cheese is completely melted. If you have filled the crepes
earlier and kept them in the refrigerator for a while, adjust the
oven time upward by at least 5 minutes.
Serve the crepes at once, with a green salad, and Cranberry-Jalapeno

Food Tips of the Week
At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
Some reduced carb diet tips:
* Know what is in your food
Don't believe food packaging that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the back of the can or packet. A good number of are only marginally reduced and in some instances still greater than a competitors normal brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are exactly the same.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, collard greens and tomato puree)
These orange and green natural foods are rich in carotenes believed by nutritionalists play a key role in minimizing the risk of cancer, particularly cancers of the stomach and lesophagus. A good number also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every weight loss program.
