Ingredients

For the High-Protein Breakfast Crepes

  • 1/2 cup dried yellow split peas
  • 1/2 cup dried chickpeas
  • 1 1/2 cups plain, unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
  • 1/3-1/2 cup water or as needed to thin

For Spinach-Mushroom Filling

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 10 ounces baby bella mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • 5 ounces baby spinach
  • 2 leeks, cleaned, halved and sliced (white and light green parts only)
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Garnishes

  • Tahini
  • Fresh basil, thinly sliced

Instructions

For the High-Protein Crepes

  • Soak the dried yellow peas and chickpeas in water overnight or for at least 8 hours. Drain off soaking water and rinse.
  • Add the soaked yellow peas, chickpeas, almond milk, nutritional yeast, olive oil, vinegar, garlic powder, and sea salt to a food processor. Process for 5-6 minutes or until you have a smooth batter.
  • Pour the batter into a large bowl and stir in 1/3-1/2 cup water to thin the batter.
  • Heat a small (about 6 inches in diameter) nonstick skillet over medium head and drop a dab of coconut oil into the pan. Once the oil has heated, pour in just under a half-ladle of batter. Cook for 1-2 minutes and flip. Cook another 1-2 minutes or until both sides are golden. Set aside and repeat until the batter is gone. You should end up with approximately 8-10 crepes/tortillas.

For the Spinach-Mushroom Fillling

  • Add the coconut oil to a large skillet and heat over medium.
  • Add in the mushrooms, spinach, leeks, salt, and pepper and saute for 8-10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

To Assemble

  • Gently fill each of the tortillas with the mushroom-spinach filling. Drizzle with tahini, sprinkle with chopped basil, and serve immediately.
  • Refrigerate remaining tortillas and filling.

Notes

*Nutrition information includes approximately 1 teaspoon of tahini per taco.
