Sweet Potato Crêpes with Asparagus and Scrambled Eggs 

Jun 18, 2024All Recipes

1/4 cup (50 mL) diced Ontario Greenhouse Sweet Red Pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded Ontario Monterey Jack Cheese
1/4 cup (50 mL) fresh Ontario Microgreens or Cilantro (Coriander) Leaves

Sauce: In blender or small food processor, combine chipotle in adobo,
crema and lime juice; purée until smooth. Transfer to small bowl; fold
in chorizo. Set aside.

Crêpes: In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In large
bowl, combine milk, eggs, sweet potato and 2 tbsp (25 mL) melted
butter; using electric mixer on low speed, beat until combined. Add
flour mixture; beat on low for about 1 minute or until smooth.

In medium nonstick skillet, melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the butter over
medium heat; swirl to coat pan. Using 1/2 cup (125 mL) batter for each
crêpe, pour into pan and immediately rotate skillet to form thin, even
crêpe; cook for 1 to 2 minutes until golden. Run spatula around edge
to loosen, flip over, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until bottom is dry.
Place cooked crêpes on parchment paper-lined baking sheet, layering
parchment between each. Keep warm in 200°F (95°C) oven. Repeat
with remaining batter, adding more butter between each crêpe as a savoury breakfast or brunch wrap with a delightful and smoky chipotle crema sauce. Reserve skillet.

Filling: In medium bowl, whisk together eggs and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each of the salt and pepper; whisk in milk. Set aside.

Return skillet to medium-high heat. Add oil; cook asparagus with remaining salt and pepper, turning often, for 5 minutes or until tender crisp. Transfer to plate and set aside.

Add diced pepper to skillet; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add garlic; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add egg mixture; reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring with silicone spatula to scramble, for 2 to 3 minutes or until eggs are just set. Sprinkle with cheese. Remove from heat.

Place 1 crêpe on serving plate; spoon one-sixth of eggs along centre and place 2 asparagus spears on eggs. Fold crêpe to enclose filling. Repeat with remaining crêpes and filling. Drizzle with sauce and garnish with microgreens.
