Tofu Veggie Stuffed Chickpea Crepe

I invented a winner tonight.  I found a gluten-free recipe for crepes in a cookbook, and made up a quick filling using veggies and herbs already in my fridge.  Turned out great.  As usual, I am ball-parking the quantities, so adjust according to your taste.

Tofu Veggie Stuffed Chickpea Crepe 

Crepes

2 cups nut milk

1 cup chickpea flour (besan)

4 tablespoons arrowroot flour

pinch salt

1 teaspoon parsley, chopped finely

1/2 teaspoon chives, chopped finely

Whisk all ingredients together.  Heat to medium a non-stick pan.  Wait until it is hot, they spray oil the pan.  add about 1/4 cup of the batter and swirl so it completely coats the bottom of the pan.  Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, flip then cook the other side.  Put on a plate and into a warm oven.  Continue  until you’ve used all the batter, stalking the crepes on top of each other and keeping warm in oven until filling is finished.

Tofu Zucchini marinade

1 tablespoon oil

2 tablespoons braggs soy sauce

1 tablespoon nutritional yeast

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1 teaspoon fresh oregano, chopped

1/2 block of tofu, shredded

1 zuchini, shredded

In a shallow dish (example – 8 by 8 cake pan), mix together first 5 ingredients.  With your hands, toss in tofu and zucchini, mixing well.  Set aside at least 20 minutes or until ready to use.

Filling

1 tablespoon olive oil

pinch red pepper flakes

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

salt and pepper

1/2 teaspoon rosemary

1 teaspoon thyme

1 large portobello mushroom plus 4 big button mushrooms, sliced thinly (I was using up what was in my fridge)

1/4 cup sherry

2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped

tofu/zucchini mixture

In a pan with a lid, heat oil and pepper flakes.  Add onions and sauté for 5 minutes before adding garlic, mushrooms, salt, pepper  and herbs.  With lid on cook down the mushrooms for about 5 – 10 minutes, adding water when dry.  Deglaze with sherry, add tomatoes and zucchini tofu mixture.  Cook another 3 to 5 minutes, just until heated through.  Either put a big scoop on one side of a crepe and fold over, or roll up.

  1. I adore gram (besan) flour and had no idea you could do this with it. It looks fantastic!

    I going to buy the flour today at a health food store and then make this tonight. I can not wait to taste it.

      It tastes good. Make sure to oil the pan, and not make the batter too thin. The first one stuck and I had to throw it out.
