Dinner – all wrapped up – D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!
If you have followed my other website, myfamilycompass.com, you know I am a big fan of FLAVORFUL food! Also, you know I am a busy mom (like many of you!) so I try to keep it simple in the kitchen. Here is one of my favorites…crepes! This happens to be a chicken, tomato, basil, feta crepe wrapped with a spinach salad on the side. Almost everything is whole food too. All I did was cut it, heat it and put it in the crepe. The crepe is the only thing I had to mix was the crepe (recipe below).
Basic Crepe Recipe
1 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 water (if you don’t have milk handy use a whole cup of water…it really doesn’t effect the crepe too much)
1/2 tsp of salt
2 Table spoons melted butter
Mix all these ingredients together until there are no lumps. Pour into a heated pan (no oil necessary – I usually cook on mid-high – I also use a large pan since I like big crepes). Once the batter is in the pan sort of tilt the pan around to coat the bottom of the pan with the batter (much like you would when making an omelet). It only takes about 15 seconds per side to cook the crepe all the way through.
If you are a wine mama like myself, I paried this with a Viognier from Chateau Fair Le Pont, a Wenatchee winery.
Also, try crepes stuffed with different ingredients. Here is another posting about fruit crepes. Another spot for inspitation is Mission Street Bistro. They have fabulous crepes…yummy and inspiring eats!!
