Serves: 6 person(s)
Yield: 12 x crepes (2 crepes per serving)

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 15 mins
Extra Time: 2 hrs (for batter to stand)

Ingredients:

    1 bunch of fresh spinach (about 7 oz) *
    3 eggs
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 cup nonfat milk
    2 Tbsp light buttery spread

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.

Microwave Directions:

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

    Continue cooking spinach crepes as directed above.

Variations:

    Recommended to serve with Mushroom Sauce (see recipe link).

    * If using frozen spinach, use 1/2 packet, drained. Steam or cook just long enough to soften.
