To Make Filling
To Make Crêpes
Make the filling first – or use leftover meat sauce if you have some.
Heat oil in a frying-pan and add onions to soften.
Add minced beef and cook together for 10–15 minutes until the onions are caramelised and mince is browned.
Add tamari soy sauce, canned tomatoes (drain off excess juice) and tomato paste.
Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often to ensure even cooking.
The mixture should reduce by a third.
Add basil, then remove from heat and keep warm while you make the buckwheat crêpes.
