1/2cupdried yellow split peas
1 1/2cupsplain, unsweetened almond milk
1teaspoonwhite wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
1/4-1/2teaspoonfine-grain sea salt
1/3-1/2cupwater or as needed to thin

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