Vegan Mushroom Salad Crepe

WP_20160523_009

This satisfying vegan dish is inspired in Naturally Sassy’s Mushroom Minced Tacos. I made her mushroom and casjew sauce recipe but since I did not have corn tortillas, I made an oregano crepe.

I met Naturally Sassy through Instagram. Her fun and delicious vegan dishes cautivated me and I felt more in love with her blog when I found out that she, like me, is also a ballet dancer. You can follow her on Instagram as Naturally Sassy and visit her blog at http://www.naturallysassy.co.uk.

This Vegan Mushroom Salad Crepe is filled with sautée mushrooms in a fresh and homemade tomato sauce, wilted spinachs and quinoa. I made a Garlic Cashew Sauce for topping. The crepe is flavored with oregano. All these powerful ingredients make this dish nutrient dense, full of minerals, vitamins and plenty of healthy fats and protein.
