Spinach Crepes with Beans, Apple & Tahini Filling
Spinach Crêpes with Chickpea, Apple & Tahini Filling
Here is another GUEST RECIPE from Green Kitchen Stories, see the link below. If you use a dark buckwheat flour the pancakes will get a more earthy colour so you could choose a different flour, if you prefer. This is extremely good and you can, of course, change the filling for something else - the variety of possibilities is endless!
1 ½ cup / 225 g buckwheat flour
3 large eggs
2 cups / 500 ml plant milk (we use oat milk)
1 cup / 250 ml water
1 tbsp melted coconut oil or butter (more for frying)
a pinch of sea salt
2 handfuls fresh spinach, rinsed (or thawed frozen)
10 leaves fresh basil (optional)
Chickpea, Apple & Tahini Filling
3 tbsp tahini
3 tbsp cold-pressed olive oil
1 organic lemon, juice
2 small apples, grated on a box gratersea salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 cups / 600 g cooked chickpeas/garbanzo beans (I used mixed beans 14 oz can)
AND THIS IS WHAT YOU DO.....
Place all the crepe ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix with a hand (immersion) blender until smooth and green. This step can also be done in a regular blender.
Refrigerate the batter for 30 minutes.
Heat an 8 inch / 20 cm frying pan on medium heat. Add a pinch of oil and when it is melted, about 1/3 cup / 80 ml of the batter. Tilt the pan in circles until the batter is evenly distributed. Fry for about 1 minute on each side, until the pancakes are golden and can be turned easily.
Fry all of the pancakes and put on a baking sheet to cool off.
Preparing the filling:
Whisk tahini, oil and lemon juice together in a mixing bowl.
Add grated apple, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
Add the chickpeas/beans and mix it with your hands until the chickpeas are coated.
Add a generous dollop of the filling in the centre of each crepe. Fold the crepe over the filling and serve.
