These delicious crepes are filled with a sweet and tangy filling. The mixture of  the slightly sour cabbage and sweet mushrooms, make for a wonderful combination in flavors. The delicate yet firm crepes are then toasted lightly until golden. They can be eaten cold or warm and taste amazing even without toasting.As mentioned before my crepe recipe was given to me by my aunt who makes amazing crepes. If you’re interested in the crepe recipe just click here. However we’re just going to jump in to the delicious filling. Of coarse you can use your favorite crepe recipe just cut down on the amount of sugar to no more than 2 tbsp as we don’t want overly sweet crepes for this filling. This recipe uses freshly shredded cabbage and requires no sour kraut, however if you happen to have left over braised cabbage that you want to use up, go right ahead just sauté the mushrooms and onion; season and add to the cold braised cabbage blend. Try this cabbage blend filling the next time you want to make crepes and serve this dish as a side, appetizer or even as a main entree. Enjoy!
