Krepa (Potato and Spinach Stuffed Greek Crepe Topped With Tomato Relish)

This "Crepe" recipe is dedicated to my entire vegetarian friend. Vegan is way to go!!! Crêpes are especially popular throughout France. The common ingredients include flour, eggs, milk, butter, and a pinch of salt. Crepes are usually of two types: sweet crepes and savoury crepes. I am eliminating egg in this recipe to make it 100% vegetarian. Stuffing is made of potato and spinach. And some tomato relish which goes perfectly with this recipe. A quick and healthy dish is ready for your dinner tonight.

Method:
1) Mix all the Crepe ingredients together in a big bowl. Pass it through a sieve.
2) Heat some oil in a pan and spread the mixture in it. Make a thin pancake spreading it throughout the pan. Cook both sides. Make several crepes and set aside.
3) Cut the potato in small cubes and boil. Heat some oil and add boiled potato, spinach, pine nuts. Stir for 2 minutes. Add ricotta and cream. Season it with salt, pepper and chili flakes. Keep the filling hot.
4) Heat some oil and add minced garlic to it. Add finely chopped onion and tomato step by step. Season it with salt. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Once the tomatoes are soft and pulpy add puree and some sugar. Mix well and add chili flakes & dried mint leaves. Cook for another minute. Grind them coarsely.
