I love recipes like this one. There are three components, all in
their own way delicious and solid. Straight-forward roasted
vegetables look like the star but I actually think it’s the
chickpea crepes and the chipotle compound butter.
Compound butter and do a little dance
There’s nothing quite like compound butter. Butter is pretty
fantastic as it is but when you start playing with flavors that
like to tango with the creamy fat, it’s a new level.
What can you add to butter? Truly a lot. Garlic, ginger, herbs,
spices, truffles, and sun-dried tomatoes just to name a few. From
there you can use these butters on bread, tossed with roasted
vegetables, as a pasta addition, added to steamed vegetables, or
tossed with homemade french
fries (a favorite of mine).
I think what I love most about this particular butter is that
it’s smoky without being overly spicy. The chipotles add just the
right amount of heat that helps to balance some of the butters
richness. The butter makes more than you need, so plan to use it
again later in the week.
Chickpea crepes: you need these
I’m not joking, you need these. Chickpea crepes have a subtle
flavor but are naturally gluten-free and have a bit of protein. The
are such a solid base for numerous veg-friendly meals.
One note, these crepes are different than socca. Socca is
thicker. These crepes are my traditional crepe recipe with a couple
small tweaks to accommodate the chickpea flour.
Finally, I know the vegetable combination might be a bit
surprising here considering I’m known for squash and sweet
potatoes. However, I love the carrots and parsnips together. Not
only is the color beautiful, the mellow earthy flavor is the
perfect compliment to the crepes and chipotle butter.
Of course, you have options. Swap the carrots and parsnips out
for sweet potatoes, squash, other root vegetables, or summer
flavors like peppers, green beans, and corn.
