Savory Crepes with Sautéed Spinach & Mushrooms

I have been asked to share the recipe for the filling I used for the Savory Chickpea Crepes. It is a very simple recipe and makes enough for 6 Savory Chickpea Crepes. Make sure you make the filling before you begin to make the crepes. The crepes roll the best when they are warm.

You can change out the spinach for any kind of greens you have, and even the mushrooms too.

Filling:

In a large dutch oven add mushrooms, spinach, All-Purpose Seasoning and garlic. Sauté over medium heat until mushrooms have released their water and the spinach has wilted.

By trial and error I found it was easier to put the crepe on a plate add the filling and roll the crepe.

Top with either my Cashew Béchamel – Basic White Sauce or JB’s Macadamia Béchamel – Raw White Sauce.

Serve. Eat. Enjoy.

Savory Chickpea Crepes

Recently I brought to you the Red Lentil Tortillas and they have been a big hit. Chickpea Crepes have been on my mind lately. I used to make regular crepes, until I went WFPB Gluten-Free. These crepes are nutritious, flavorful, have minimal ingredients and are easy to make.

I increased the servings amount. Initially the recipe was half the amount, but that just was not enough, so I doubled it. the hardest thing is letting the batter rest.

In a high-speed blender add all the ingredients. Blend until completely combined. Cover the batter and let rest for a couple of hours at room temperature, or refrigerate overnight.

Heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat. Make sure you wait for the skillet to heat up. I got too impatient and ruined my first crepe. That was a sad moment.

Pour the batter into the pan tilting it to make a large circle.

Cook 1 1/2 -2 minutes, the top of the crepe will look dry. Slide a spatula around the edges to loosen and carefully flip the crepe . Cook the other side until it is browned, about 1 minute. As the skillet gets hot and remains hot the crepes take less time to make.
Do not get disheartened if the first crepe does not turn out. Look at it as a test to see if the pan is hot enough. It is still edible, just not pretty.

Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
