Leek Leftovers

This week I had leftover leek tops I had to do something with so I thought why not a leek broth. I added onions carrots and 2 cloves of garlic season salt pepper and let it cook in a slow cooker. Once that was completed I let it cool over night. Now the thing is you have all this leek carrot onion leftover and I felt it wasn't right to just put in the compost as I figure it has too much flavour and life left . This is what I did.

I took the leek leftovers from the soup squeezing all the broth out. Then I took two eggs whipped them up and added it to the leek carrot and onion mixture. I first thought maybe and omelette , but the I decided it could be more. Why not a pancake or something like okonomiyaki?

I added some flour to the mixture and thickened it so it would be like a crepe or maybe pancake. I took the crepe pan I use to make almost everything that is flat like omelettes , pancakes crepes etc. and added some olive oil to it.

Then I proceed to add the mixture to the pan and flatten it all around so it filled up the pan. I cooked the one side then with a large plate covering the top I flipped it and slid it into the pan to cook the other side. It didn't take much to cook it as it wasn't too thick. I then placed in the pan and added okonomiyaki sauce and a little chipotle mayo onto to make it look fancy. And voila a great breakfast idea comes together. Or I guess it could be a lunch or dinner idea as well. Who doesn't like pancakes, crepes or okonomiyaki anytime of the day. Make it and enjoy.
