Savoury Pumpkin Crêpes


pumpkin crepes

Crisp autumn evenings are best spent at home with family and friends. I love to entertain and prepare different foods, snacks and cheese platters for my guests. Collecting and mixing autumn flavours and seasonal products is for me a way to celebrate the season. That’s how I came up with a recipe for savoury pumpkin crêpes. I think they make a perfect side dish for an autumnal dinner, but they are also perfect for lunch, a picnic, or as a snack during a board game night. Paired with other autumnal flavours like figs, goat brie, walnuts and an apple cider you easily create a warm and inviting table.

The savoury pumkin crêpes are best served with a fig or apple chutney. Scroll down for the recipe.
