Ingredients
  

  • For Crepes:
  • 1/2 C. All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 C. Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1 t. Sea salt
  • 1 1/2 C. Plant-based milk of choice unsweetened, plain (I used soy milk)
  • 3 T. Grape seed oil
  • You may need to thin the batter with a bit of water so it pours easily before cooking the crepes.
  • Extra grape seed oil for cooking crepes
  • For Cashew Cream:
  • 1/2 C. Raw cashews soaked for 1-2 hours,marinade and drained
  • 3/4 C. Water
  • 1 t. Sea salt scant
  • 1/2 small onion
  • Mushroom and Asparagus Filling:
  • 1 t. Grape seed oil
  • 1/2 small onion thinly sliced
  • 3 C. Sliced mushrooms
  • 4 t. Minced garlic
  • 1/4 c. Marsala wine dry
  • 1 1/2 t. Thyme dried, crushed between your fingers
  • 1 1/2 C. Lightly steamed asparagus 1" pieces
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Begin by blending all crepe ingredients, flours, salt, milk, and oil, in a blender until smooth and creamy. Let sit for 1 hour before cooking crepes.
  • Next, blend all cashew cream ingredients, cashews, water, salt, and onion, until smooth and creamy.
  • Then, lightly steam asparagus until just fork tender.
  • In a pan, heat grape seed oil, then add onions and a pinch of salt. Sauté until translucent and then add mushrooms.
  • Cook until mushrooms are slightly browned and have released their juices.
  • Add minced garlic and cook until fragrant.
  • Deglaze the pan with the Marsala wine.
  • Add cashew cream, thyme, pepper and steamed asparagus. Heat through. Add salt to taste.
  • To cook crepes, heat grape seed oil in a non-stick pan. Add about 1/3 C. of crepe batter (I had to add a bit of water to thin the batter out) and quickly rotate pan to spread the batter as thin as possible. Cook about 1 minute, until edges are just beginning to crisp. Flip over and cook about 15 seconds more. Place on a plate covered with a clean kitchen towel. The more you do the easier it will get.
  • Fill your crepes with the Asparagus and Mushroom Cream Sauce. Dollop a bit more filling on top and garnish with sliced red bell pepper.
