Buckwheat Crepes with Potato and Mushroom Filling
Recipe type: Buckwheat
Serves: 6
  • 12 large buckwheat crepes
  • 1 pound Portobello or shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 cloves garlic; minced
  • salt to taste
  • 3 large yellow onions; chopped
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 large russet potatoes
  • 1/2 Cup dry white wine
  • flat-leaf parsley; coarsely chopped
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 4 ounces Swiss or Fontina cheese; grated
  1. Clean the mushrooms and cut them in 1/2-inch dice. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil and a teaspoon of butter in a large non-stick skillet and stir the minced garlic in it for a minute. Add the mushrooms and a little salt, and saute for 10-12 minutes, until they are tender and starting to sizzle.
  2. In another skillet, cook the chopped onions in the remaining olive oil and butter, with a dash of salt, until they are soft and turning golden.
  3. Peel the potatoes and cut them in 1/2-inch dice. Combine them in a saucepan with the white wine and enough water just barely to cover them, as well as 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Bring the water to a boil, lower the heat to a simmer, cover the pan tightly, and cook for 10-15 minutes, until the potatoes are just tender. Remove the lid and continue cooking gently, stirring once or twice, until the liquid is reduced and thickened to a sauce. Stir in the sauteed onions and mushrooms, as well as chopped parsley and fresh-ground black pepper to taste.
  4. Allow the potato-mushroom mixture to cool slightly, then fill the crepes. Spoon 2-3 rounded tablespoons of filling across the center of each crepe, then sprinkle a litle grated cheese over the filling before rolling or folding the crepe loosely over it. You should have about a dozen filled crepes.
  5. Cover the crepes loosely with aluminum foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, or until they are hot through and the cheese is completely melted.
