Raw Cashew Crêpes w Fruit, Mint & Lavender

Raw Cashew Crêpes w Fruit, Mint & Lavender
This is a deliciously delicate tasting breakfast or snack...
Prepared by:
Cuisine: vegan
Recipe type: Breakfast/snack
Serves: 4
Prep time: 
Total time: 
You need
  • For the crêpes (this will make about 4-6) you need:
  • 1.5 cups of cashews, soaked
  • 3 tbsp of agave nectar
  • 2 tbsp of lemon juice
  • a pinch of salt
  • water to dilute as much as needed
  • For the filling, per wrap (as an example, the possibilities are endless):
  • slices of banana
  • slices of apple
  • tiny wedges of kumquat
  • 3 leafs of mint, chopped up
  • 1 tsp of lavender flowers
To do
  1. blend all the ingredients for the crêpes, but only add water when needed. It needs to be thin enough to spread out, that's all
  2. spread out the mixture on a dehydrator sheet (I had enough for a bit more on a 2nd sheet)
  3. dehydrate for 8 hours on 45C. The crêpe should peel off easily, not stick anymore and be pliable, so dehydrate an hour longer if needed
  4. then cut in 4 pieces, arrange your filling and carefully roll up

A nice way of serving fruits and have a filling breakfast (or lunch, or snack ) :-)

You need (for 2-3 persons):
♣     1 banana, cubed
♣     1 nectarine, cubed
♣     half a hand of almonds
♣     half a hand of hazelnuts
♣     half a hand of walnuts
♣     oil for baking (I like to use coconut oil)
♣     1 wholemeal pita per person (so 2 or 3)
♣     1 tsp cinnamon

You do:

– heat the oil in a skillet

– add cubed banana, nectarine and cinnamon, bake for a short while, switch off heat before it goes too soggy
– cut off the top of the pita bread so you have a nice pocket

You could drizzle some orangey Cashew Cream on top (just mix orange zest and a little bit of agave or coconut nectar with Cashew Cream), or serve on the side :-)
