.mushroom, spinach, herb, + cheese crepe filling.

in addition to the previous post for your basic simple crepe, here's an amazing filling to complete your meal! this is an old recipe borrowed from my mother-in-law's previous restaurant, 'flavours modern bistro' and is also an old favourite of mine!
mushroom + spinach + herb + cheese 
crepe filling with tomato topping
ingredients:
2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
250 grams of mushrooms, chopped [a mixture of oyster, shiitake, and cremini is her fav!]
250 grams of your favourite ready greens salad mix [small tub of salad mixture - we did a mix of spinach and baby kale]
200 grams of favourite melting cheese [raclette is recommended, but any available mixture - even mozzarella! can be used]
salt and pepper
1 can tomato sauce
fresh tomatoes, chopped into thick chunks
fresh herbs
directions:
1] in a large pan heat the oil and onions. cook on medium heat till translucent.
2] add chopped mushrooms and cook till caramelized-stirring as needed and increasing heat if needed. add salt and pepper.
3] take pan off heat and add your greens, roughly torn. the warmed mushroom mixture will wilt the greens for you, no need for extra heat.
4] add the cheese and mix gently till melted. divide the mixture into four and fill the crepes
[recipe here].
5] make warm tomato sauce by adding a can of tomato sauce, chopped fresh tomatoes, and chopped fresh herbs all together in a pan. warm and pour sauce over each assembled crepe.
**you can also add grilled chicken to this recipe too!
