Crepes 2 Ways

September 22nd, 2017

A classic Crêpe Suzette is prepared tableside with dramatic flair—flambéed liqueur lights up the room with a burst of flames. At home, here are two ways to flavor your crepes—one savory and one sweet—without setting off the fire alarms! Skip the batter and use Paleo coconut wraps made with organic ingredients like coconut meat, coconut water, and extra-virgin coconut oil. For a savory dinner, roll up coconut turmeric wraps with flavorfully seasoned mushrooms and stick with the original version for a sweet dessert flavored with zesty orange and honey.

Turmeric Mushroom Crepes

Yield: 2 servings
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

2 teaspoons Thrive Market Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, divided
8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 medium shallot, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (13.5-ounce) can Thrive Market Organic Coconut Milk
1 sprig fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Black Pepper
½ teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Nutmeg
¼ cup nutritional yeast
Zest of 1 lemon
4 Thrive Market Organic Turmeric Coconut Wraps
¼ cup chopped parsley
2 tablespoons chopped chives

Warm 1 teaspoon coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shiitake mushrooms and sauté until tender and beginning to brown; about 7 to 9 minutes. Transfer to a towel-lined plate.

Add remaining 1 teaspoon coconut oil to the same pan; sauté shallots for 1 to 2 minutes. Add garlic, and cook for an additional 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add coconut milk, rosemary, salt, pepper, and nutmeg; stir. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. Discard the rosemary sprig, then add nutritional yeast, lemon zest, and taste for seasonings.

On a cutting board, fold each coconut wrap in half, then in half again. Place crepes into skillet and let simmer 1 minute, then flip to coat the other side with sauce. Remove crepes with a slotted spoon and add reserved mushrooms to the pan; heat for 1 to 2 minutes. To serve, pour mushroom sauce over warmed crepes and sprinkle with parsley and chives.
