The chefs grind fresh black pepper for all their dishes, and it's vital to the taste of these brunch specialties. The grilled zucchini salsa adds sparkle to even a simple dish of scrambled eggs, but, when you're rushed, substitute a good-quality store-bought salsa.
- Portion size 4 servings
- 1/4 cup ground tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups sliced oyster mushrooms
- 2 cups sliced button mushrooms
- 2 cups shredded fresh spinach
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
- tomato Salsa
- 2 eggs
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup butter melted
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 green onions thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (approx)
Crêpes: In bowl, whisk together eggs and egg yolk. Whisk in milk, water and butter. Set aside.
In separate large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over dry ingredients; whisk just until combined. Pour through sieve into clean bowl. Stir in green onions.
Heat nonstick crepe pan or small nonstick skillet over medium heat; brush lightly with some of the oil. Pour in 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the batter; swirl to coat pan and return to heat. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until bottom of crepe is light golden. Turn and cook briefly on other side just until firm. Place on paper towel-lined baking sheet. Repeat to make 7 more crepes, brushing pan with oil as necessary. (Make-ahead: Let cool, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Remove plastic wrap and paper towel, cover with foil and reheat in 200°F/100°C oven, or transfer to plate and microwave 2 at a time.)
Meanwhile, in small saucepan, heat tomatoes over low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until hot; set aside and keep warm.
Meanwhile, in small skillet, melt half of the butter over medium heat; cook mushrooms, stirring often, for 5 to 8 minutes or until liquid is evaporated. Add spinach; cover and steam over low heat for 2 minutes or until wilted. Keep warm.
In separate nonstick skillet, melt remaining butter over medium heat. In bowl, beat eggs; pour into skillet. Cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or until thickened but still moist and very soft.
To serve, place crepes on work surface. Spoon band of scrambled eggs along centre of each. Top with mushroom mixture. Sprinkle with some of the feta. Fold 1 side over filling and roll up. Place 2 filled crepes, seam side down, on each of 4 warmed plates; top with Zucchini Tomato Salsa. Drizzle tomato sauce around crepes; sprinkle with remaining feta.
