29 days of rice – Rice crepes with bean creamed corn hummus – day 18

4 Comments

I’m pretty excited about this, because I suck at pancakes or anything flat in a pan, and I actually managed crepes! 😀 Healthy, delicious, and stuffed with a delicious bean creamed corn hummus filling for extra cheer 😀crepeprofile

For the crepes I followed Usha’s recipe, just replacing the lentils with what I had on hand, which was brown and red lentils, as well as some split green peas. If you’re GF just make sure the oats are GF!

Make the crepes beforehand then cover them while you make the filling, or else multitask if you’re keen and have enough pots and pans!

Creamed corn hummus:

  • 1 cup white beans/chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup canned corn
  • 1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 heaped TBSP apricot jam (homemade is always preferable! If you like soak dried apricots then blend them down)
  • 1 large green bell pepper, diced finely
  • 1 radish, diced
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • Ginger, cinnamon
  • 1 TBSP nutritional yeast
  • Spices of choice (I used lots of white pepper + paprika)

How-to:

  1. Make your crepes ahead of time and keep them under a cover to stay warm.
  2. Blend your beans, cider vinegar, onion powder, nutritional yeast and spices until smooth.
  3. Fold in the jam, pepper and corn.
  4. Stuff your crepes and enjoy!

 

How awesome are these crepes – they look like they’ve been crocheted! It’s my first time making crepes so I didn’t make them paper thin, and hence I got 16 whereas you could possibly get 20 with more skill. I was so chuffed either way that it didn’t fuss me much.

Of course, my dear FIL also made me some vegan nuggets and there were some roasted veggies, so I only ended up polishing one crepe, but wow! 😀 With a change in spices they could easily house some delicious banana caramel delights or roasted pepper and chocolate…mmm.

Anyway, off to the cat shelter I go! We’re pretty exhausted after spending a solid amount of time packing out books and other odds and ends, so I might have to snag some pick-me-ups on the way there, just to stay awake. On the other hand those kittens are so cute that once you’re in their presence all the aches and pains fade and there’s only a solid whollop of joy.
