Since we have 2 very hungry people at home most of the time, 1 on Prednisolone and the other eating ravenously during growth spurts, I need lots of quick, healthy and relatively nutritious food to ease the hunger pangs.
One thing that we always like to make is Crepe. It’s easy, quick and uses the usual kitchen cupboard ingredients so there’s no need to stock up on rarely used ingredients. The ingredients are
- Pinch of salt
Whisk them all together till they form a smooth, runny batter. I don’t really have proportions, so I just gauge just how runny the batter is and adjust accordingly. Heat a large non-stick pan, add some butter and heap a ladle of batter into the pan. Swirl the pan till the batter covers the entire pan, creating a large thin pancake.
A crepe on its own is not exciting. But it’s like a piece of toast. You can literally add anything you want to it; sweet or savoury. Traditionally it’s eaten with butter and sugar, or with a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkling of sugar.
I like to make it for breakfast with Nutella (Hazelnut spread) and bananas or strawberries, or as a savoury pancake with grated cheese and ham.
But it’s also great with something simpler. So when the wife and I get hunger pangs in the evenings we usually eat it plain, with some sugar or honey, or ice cream. It reminds us of the times we were in Paris, walking around, exploring all the nooks and crannies of the wonderful city, munching on a crepe. 🙂
