For as long as I can remember, my family has always had crepes filled with mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables as a first course at one of the Pesach meals. Why not take those delicious crepes and give them more elegance? Hence, the purse. Add my mother’s famous onion sauce and you have one big winner!

Ingredients (28)

Potato Filling

Vegetable Filling

Crepes

Onion Paprika Sauce

Garnish

Start Cooking

Prepare the Potato Filling

  1. Fill a medium pot with water. Add potatoes and bring to a boil. Cook until potatoes are soft. Drain most of the water and mash thoroughly.

  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute until translucent. Add garlic and saute an additional one to two minutes. Add onion mixture to mashed potatoes. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.

Prepare the Vegetable Filling

  1. In the same skillet, heat olive oil. Add onion and saute until translucent, five minutes. Add zucchini, peppers, and mushrooms. Cook until soft, about eight to ten minutes.

  2. Add wine, potato starch, salt, pepper, and garlic. Let simmer five additional minutes. Let cool.

Tip:

Have any extra chicken from your chicken soup? Shred the pieces into the roasted vegetable mixture and voila, you have a roasted vegetable and chicken mixture that pairs perfectly with the mashed potato in the crepe.

Prepare the Onion Paprika Sauce

  1. Heat olive oil in a saute pan over medium head. Add onions and saute until translucent.

  2. Add water, potato starch, paprika, and salt. Let simmer over low heat until sauce thickens a bit, approximately five minutes.

Note:

This sauce is great to use for any Pesach appetizer (especially crepes), since I know many people do not use mushrooms on Pesach.

Prepare the Crepes

  1. In a blender or a food processor fitted with the S blade, blend eggs until smooth. Add potato starch, water, and salt. Blend a bit more until very smooth.

  2. Heat a seven-inch or eight-inch skillet. Spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray (or a bit of oil). Spoon three tablespoons of batter into the pan and move the batter around quickly to cover the whole pan. Cook three minutes until edges are a bit crisp. With a spatula, flip over and cook on the other side for 15 seconds. Transfer to a plate. Repeat the process until all of the batter is finished.

To Assemble the Purses

  1. Put one heaping tablespoon of mashed potato in the center of a crepe. Then spoon a heaping tablespoon of the sauteed vegetable mixture over the mashed potato.

  2. Lift the sides of the crepe and gather to the center. Tie with a long thin scallion strip.

  3. Serve with hot onion paprika sauce over (or under, as seen in photo) the crepe.

Tip:

Don’t have time to tie it up? Just fill the crepe and roll. Keep it simple!

    Garlicky Potato and Roasted Vegetable Purses with Onion Paprika Sauce

    Can these crepes be made in advance and frozen - Also if I want to make them in a purse do I have to fill them immediately or can it be done later?

    Crepes freeze beautifully and if fully defrosted you can fill them no problem. I never personally filled them as purses, but blintzes that are filled freeze nicely too, so I don't see why not. Not sure if the scallion tie with get wilted if you freeze it.
