Vegetable Crepes with Cabbage and Spring Onions


Crepes ,the thin French pancakes are surprisingly easy to make with simple everyday ingredients milk, eggs and flour. Make it sweet or savory by stuffing with fruit or vegetables, top with cream ,chocolate or hot sauce,anything appealing to your mood.
I made mine with fresh Cabbage and spring onions, a quick fix lunch.

Ingredients
For Stuffing
2 cups Cabbage,shred
4 Spring Onions,chopped
1/2 cup Red peppers,Sliced
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper or chilly powder
1/2 ginger and garlic paste ,or freshly grated
1 table spoon Olive oil

For Crepes

3/4 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup All purpose flour
1 spring onions,finely chopped
1 Organic Egg(for egg-less crepes,add extra milk)
Salt and white pepper
1/2 cup reduced fat milk
2 table spoon Olive oil
1/4 cup cold water,little more if needed

Method

Cook the Stuffing
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan,add the chopped green onions,saute for a minute. Add the ginger and garlic,saute another minute. Add the rest of vegetables and spices. Cook on medium high heat until water is all cooked,about 10 minutes,do not cover.
Make Crepes
In a small bowl crack an egg and lightly whisk it . In another bigger bowl sift flour, and salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper together and slowly whisk in milk ,chopped spring onions and eggs. If batter is still a little thick, dilute with a bit more milk.
Heat a small saute pan and lightly oil it (or use spray). Place a small amount of batter (about 1/4 cup) and swirl it around in pan to cover bottom. When bottom is cooked, the edges will be a little brown. Remove and flip, then let cool on tray. Make 8 medium crepes.

Assemble and Cook again
Spoon filling mixture into center of each crepe; fold .Add about a table spoon of olive oil in a non stick pan,roast the folded crepes , until lightly crisp on both sides. Serve with a drizzle of hot sauce.

Vegetarian Note
To make eggless crepes add extra quarter cup of milk.

I ADORE savoury crepes and experimenting with different ingredients to add to the batter. I'll never ever get tired of (making and eating) crepes LOL. Thanks for sending them my way :)

Spice Rack said...

It is like spring rolls, the only difference is the shape and I know the taste is also different because of the herbs and spices used in the dish.
