  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup nonfat milk
  • 2 Tbsp light buttery spread

Directions: Standard directions Microwave directions

Remove spinach stems. Wash spinach leaves but do not dry. Place leaves in a saucepan and bring to a boil; cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from stove, drain, puree, and put aside to cool. (Yield is 1/2 cup or 3-1/2 ounces cooked drained spinach.)

In the meantime, beat eggs, flour and nonfat milk in a bowl. Stir in spinach and melted butter then let stand for 2 hours before using.

Lightly oil a heavy crepe pan. Pour 1/4 cup of mixture in hot pan and tilt around until evenly spread. When dry on top, turn over and cook for further 20 seconds on other side.

Transfer to a wire rack. Stack pancakes on top of one another.

Prepare spinach and place in a covered microwave dish. Cook for 4 minutes on HIGH.

Continue cooking spinach crepes as directed above.
