Coconut-Chickpea Crepes with Smoky Herbed Mushrooms

COCONUT-CHICKPEA CREPES WITH SMOKY HERBED MUSHROOMS


Scale

Ingredients

for the filling

  • 1/2 TB olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, cut in half, then thinly sliced
  • 10 oz mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 23 garlic gloves, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 or 3 TB coconut milk (skim the heavy part off the top of the can)
  • 1 tsp coconut vinegar
  • salt and pepper, to taste

for the crepes

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup fizzy water
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 TB tapioca flour
  • 1 TB nutritional yeast (optional)
  • a few dashes of salt
  • olive oil, for sauteing
  • chopped fresh parsley, for serving

Instructions

  1. To make the filling, heat the olive oil in a medium-sized saute pan over medium-low heat. Place the shallots into the pan and saute for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in the mushrooms, then place a lid over the top. Increase the heat to medium and allow the mushrooms to sweat for 4-5 minutes. Remove the lid and slightly lower the heat to allow some of the moisture to evaporate, about 4-5 minutes more. Add in the garlic and saute for an additional 2 minutes.
  2. Add in the thyme and paprika. Stir well. Scoop off 2 or 3 tablespoons of the coconut cream from the top of the can. Reserve the rest of the canned coconut milk for the crepes. Add it to the pan and allow it to melt. Stir to combine, then add 1/2 tsp of coconut vinegar to the pan. Taste and add another 1/2 tsp if desired. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Keep it over the lowest heat setting possible while you make your crepes.
  3. To make the crepes, pour out the remaining coconut milk into a bowl. Stir it until the thin and thick parts are thoroughly combined. Measure out 1/2 cup of it into another bowl, then add in 3/4 cup of seltzer water. Whisk vigorously, then add in the chickpea and tapioca flours, nutritional yeast and salt, then whisk again.
  4. Heat a clean non-stick circular pan over medium heat for 5 minutes. Spray with a little cooking spray or oil, then quickly pour a thin layer of the batter into the middle. Pick up the hot pan immediately and tilt the pan around so it is evenly covered. Return the pan to the heat and allow it to cook until the edges are slightly golden brown, about 3 minutes. Carefully flip it over with a spatula, then cook for only 1-2 minutes more. This should make about 4-5 medium-sized crepes.
  5. Spoon some of the mushroom filling into each of the crepes. Sprinkle with a bit of fresh parsley and serve immediately.
