A dish by Bettina Campolucci Bordi

"I’m excited to share this beetroot crêpe recipe - it’s a burst of colours and flavours!

Using the Stellar Crêpe Pan makes the cooking process a breeze, ensuring your crêpe turns out perfectly. With a vibrant purple pancake mixture made from fresh beetroot, flour, milk, and a touch of baking powder, you’ll create a visually stunning and delicious base.

Once cooked to perfection, you can customise your pink crêpe with a medley of fresh ingredients, including hummus, tenderstem broccoli, avocado, cherry tomatoes and spinach leaves (or any other ingredients you have to hand), all drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with flavoured sea salt.

This savoury beetroot crêpe is not only a treat for the tastebuds but a feast for the eyes, perfect for any meal of the day. And I’m so pleased to be able to rely on the Stellar Crêpe Pan for its even heating and non-stick surface, making this dish a pleasure to cook!"
