This beautiful vegetarian crepe recipe is chock full of the fun-guys of veges - mushrooms! Check it out here:
For spinach crepes, you need:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup Organic Olive Oil
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp salt
Generous grind of ground black pepper
1/2 cup well drained cooked shredded spinach (or frozen spinach well squeezed and drained is fine)
50g / 1.7oz mascarpone or soft cream cheese
250g / 8.8oz sliced portobello mushrooms
150g / 5.2oz blue cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Place all ingredients in blender and process until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Heat a small, shallow non-stick frypan over a medium heat. Wipe a paper towel with a few dribbles of Organic Extra Virgin Olive oil on it over the surface. Pour or ladle in approx 1/4 cup of mixture. Swirl the pan to evenly coat the surface with crepe mixture. Cook for 1 1/2 minutes, then carefully flip the crepe over with a bendy spatula or palette knife.
2. The second side only takes about 20 seconds to cook. Turn out on to a wire rack covered with tea towel or paper towel while you cook the rest of the batch. To store, place sheets of waxed or greaseproof paper between crepes, place in a sealable plastic bag and freeze.
Herb salad, parsley and coriander –
Your favourite relish or chutney
Place the crepes browned side up and spread each one with softened cream cheese, a bit like buttering toast. Sprinkle with sliced mushrooms, crumbled blue cheese, some fresh herbs, such as parsley, then season with salt and pepper. Roll up the crepe and place on individual plates (two small crepes for small courses or two to three larger ones for main courses).
When ready to eat, microwave on high for two to three minutes, until the cheese is melted and the mushrooms hot. Serve immediately. Sprinkle with a few bits of crumbled blue cheese, a herb salad, a sprinkling of parsley or coriander, plus relish, salsa or sour cream if desired.
Be creative and add in other veges, colour and different types of your favourite golden cheeses.
