Everybody (or almost everybody) in UK celebrates a very special day today: Pancake Day! How amazing is that, a whole day dedicated to pancakes. I have to say that this is one of my favourite days of the year. So, I’ve made some Savoury Crepes, filled with cheesy peppers and beans, served with coleslaw and a bit of salad. They are delicious, a bit of a twist on my the savoury crepes I usually make, with mushrooms, but just as delicious. I should also mention that today we are going to have some sweet crepes and maybe pancakes as well.
If you are like us, you’d have this for breakfast, if you prefer a light breakfast, then these would make a pretty fab lunch. Also, the crepes and the filling can be made in advance and heat up, if you don’t have the time to make it for lunch time. If you plan to make them for breakfast, make the crepes smaller and put only 2 per serving. This way, using these ingredients, you’ll make 4 servings.
Ingredients for 2 servings of Savoury Crepes:
– 6 crepes made using my basic crepe recipe, medium size
– 5 peppers, a mix of red and green
– 1 can of cannellini beans, drained
– 100g light soft cheese
– 2 spoons of oil
– 1/2 tsp cardammom
– sea salt
– 1/2 garlic powder
– 1 tsp dried basil
– 1/2 tsp paprika
– chilli flakes
– coleslaw and mix salad leaves for serving
Wash and cut the peppers in strips. Heat a frying pan over high heat and pour the oil. Toss in the peppers and stir. Leave them to cook and add a bit of water. The peppers will be ready in about 20 to 25 minutes, plenty of time to make the crepes. Drain the beans in a colander.
When the peppers are almost done, sprinkle all the spices but not the chilli flakes and mix. Reduce the heat. Tip the beans on top of the peppers and stir until all the spices are incorporated. Leave for another minute or two to cook. Add the soft cheese and stir until is incorporated. Take off the heat and make the crepes.
Put them on a plate with coleslaw and salad and sprinkle the chilli flakes on top.
