« Crepes » meal

Why not make a complete and balanced meal with crepes?! Follow my recipe…

Ingredients for 3 persons (6 large crepes)

For the crepe batter:

  • 2 eggs
  • 500 ml of semi-skimmed milk
  • 2 teaspoons of sunflower oil
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 200 g of flour

For the cooking:

  • 2 teaspoons of sunflower

Specific material: a non-stick pan (about 25 cm in diameter), paper towel to remove excess oil from the pan, a ladle to pour the batter into the pan, a spatula to flip the crepes.

Directions

Step 1:

In a mixing bowl, break the eggs and beat them into an omelette.

Add milk, oil (2 teaspoons) and salt. Mix.

Step 2:

Add the flour gradually while whipping the preparation to avoid lumps.

Mix until you have a smooth and liquid paste.

Step 3:

Cover the mixing bowl with a plastic film.

Put the crepes batter in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. This rest period reduces the elasticity of gluten: the batter will spread more easily in the pan at the time of cooking.

Step 4:

After 30 minutes, remove the batter from the fridge: the batter has a little thickened because the starch swells with water. Whisk the mixture to obtain a homogeneous mixture again. If the batter is too thick, add a little water or milk.

Step 5:

In a frying pan (25 cm diameter), heat a teaspoon of oil over medium heat, spreading it out with paper towel.

Keep the paper towel soaked in excess oil.

Step 6:

Using a ladle, pour some batter into the pan and spread it out.

Cook for a few minutes over medium heat.

When the first side is cooked, flip and cook the other side for a few minutes.

Place your cooked crepe on a plate.

Wipe your pan with the paper towel soaked in oil. You can add a teaspoon of oil every 3 crepes approximately.

Repeat step 6 until the batter is gone.

Step 7:

Cover the crepes until serving.

If you want to eat hot crepes, you can reheat them in the microwave for 1 minute just before serving.

Step 8:

Garnish your crepes with the ingredients of your choice.

Roll your crepe and enjoy!!!

Suggestion for a balanced dinner:

1 salty crepe with smoked turkey breast (50 g) and mushrooms (100 g)

&

1 sweet crepe with Nutella (2 teaspoons)
