VEGAN PETITES CRÊPES D'ÉPINARDS

[Spinach Pancakes]

...linking up with A2K - A Seasonal Veg Table's Eat you Greens...

...given my past history with Julia's recipes...you've been lucky to get one recipe a week...so I bet you weren't expecting two posts in one week...HA!...

...Pi(e) Day may be a questionable holiday...but St. Patrick's Day is not...

...so in honor of St. Patrick's Day...we made some pretty green spinach pancakes for breakfast...

...first you need to make VEGAN PÂTE À CRÊPES...which is a vegan crepe batter...
...and then you just blend in a cup of spinach...and you'll get this pretty bright green batter...
...and you film a pan with Earth Balance...I used a cast iron pan...on medium low on my stove...
...pour a bit of the batter onto the pan just like you're making pancakes...
...then using the back of a spoon...begin to spread the batter out thinly...
...it will start to dry...
...be careful...once it starts to get dry you're more likely to pull up and tear a bit of the crêpe...
...then when it is mostly dry on top...
...use your spatula to loosen the crêpe around the edges...
...then...catching the edge of the crêpe with your spatula maybe halfway under the crêpe...slide the crêpe and turn it over...
...this is what the underside looks like when you flip it over...slightly browned with tiny bubbles...
...after a few minutes...flip the crêpe back over...this will be the top side...
...Julia says to fold the crêpes in quarters...
...we had ours for breakfast with some tofu scrambled with some peppers and onions...a little more green...
...this was such a pretty and colourful meal...
...and the crêpes were tender and delicious...I'll definitely make them again...probably not for breakfast though...
