Tasty Tuesday - Roasted Strawberry Crepes




Spring, Spring, Glorious Spring. I am so very glad you are here. It feels like you have been hiding away for far too long. Winter seemed to take forever... but maybe that was because I was pregnant and everyday seemed to drag on a bit. I think I have said this before but I will say it again... and again!
Spring is my most favourite time of year. (Apart from the terrible hay fever that I get)

Delicious berries are in season now.... mmmm strawberries. I could eat a punnet a day if we were rich enough to afford to buy them everyday! Mind you we do have a strawberry patch and that does help with supplementing the strawberries I do buy from the supermarket every now and again.


This is my first recipe I have posted in a long while and I am sorry for the delay.... it's a just I've been a little pre-occupied lately with having a baby and all! I thought I would chose something simple, delicious and easy to make to post for my first recipe.... and these spring crepes sure took my fancy.


By roasting the strawberries with a little bit of sugar, vanilla and some balsamic vinegar it really adds a whole new dimension to these delicious morsels. They become truly divine! I probably could of roasted mine a bit longer until they collapsed a bit more and some juices started appearing to drizzle later on over the crepes.... but I got impatient.... oh and hungry! You can't blame me though can you!


 I have to admit I did eat these for breakfast and I had a smile on my face all morning from them! They made my day in fact. Topped off with a drizzle of maple syrup or some greek yoghurt for breakfast or ice cream for dessert.... or hey ice cream for breakfast - who's going to know! They make a great change to the usual boring cereal or Vegemite on toast.





 Tell me you wouldn't say no to these if they were placed in front of you for breakfast! I know I wouldn't.... and well I didn't! I ate them all up - pronto!
