Spinachs and parmesan filling crepes

Long time since I had made crepes , always forget the nice are them and how we like with some veggies or a dessert (filling with jam or dulce de leche).
I had spinachs so thesese was perfect for this plate.
Easy and yumm.

These panquekes (or crepes)  can be kept perfectly frozen!

200 grs. plain flour
2 eggs
1 yolk
400 ml milk
pinch of salt
30 g. butter

400 g spinachs
some green onions trimmed and sliced
salt and pepper
250 grs creme fraiche or sour cream
100 grs. grated parmesan cheese
50 g.unsalted butter

To prepare the crepes  place the flour and a pinch of salt in a large bowl, add the eggs and yolk and mix to a lumpy wet paste using a spoon.
Now add the milk and whisk a little to begin  to smooth out the lumps.Beat until you have a creamy batter.

Alternatively place all the ingredients except for the butter in a blender and whizz until smoothy.
I use a hand whisk and was perfect.
Leave the batter to stand for   least 20 minutes, then stir in the melted batter.

Heat a frying pan  of about 24 cm  over a medium heat  and add some oil drops and clean with a paper towel.
Ladle injust enough batter to coat the base,tipping it to allow it to run evenly over the surface. When the pan is hot enough the pancake mixture should sizzle as it hits the pan.

Cook by 30  seconds until the top side appears dry and  lacy at the edges and is golden.
Loosen the edges using a palette, a knife or spatula.
Slip this underneathand flip it over. Give another 30 seconds and then slip int onto in a plate.
You can make a pile  them up on a plate  and cover with foil to keep warm.


To make the filling bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and add the spinach and blanch it for 2 minutes, then drain it and press out as much of the water as possible.

At the same time heat a large frying pan over a medium low heat for a few minutes add the butter and once it has melted stirring ocassionally  Then add the green onions and sweat by a minutes.
Finally mix in the spinach  and cook about 1 minute. seasoning with salt and pepper  Leave cool and transfer to a bowl.

To assmble the cannelloni (crepes) lay a couple of tablespoon of the filling just to the side of the centre of the top pancake. and roll it up.
Place this in a 35 x 35 cm roasting dish and fill and roll the remainder likewise, laying them out in a row.
Heat the oven to 180° c Beat the creme fraiche with a spoon to lossen it and spoon it evenly over the pancakes. Scatter over the
parmesan cheese and bake for 25 minutes until golden and sizzling.

Panqueques rellenos con espinacas

Siempre se me olvida lo ricos que son los panqueques y tan rápidos, me acuerdo que mi abuelita Filomena (la española) parada en la cocina y diciendo ya estais listos?? y todos decian. no todavía no para que la pobre viejita siguiera haciendo panqueques.
Los iba haciendo y los ibamos comiendo tal cual, normalmente con manjar (dulce de leche) pero tambien me encantan salados y los hago a veces con pollo o mariscos o con verduras, esta vez los hice con espinacas.

Es una receta de Country living UK

200 gramos de harina sin polvos de hornear
2 huevos
1 yema de huevo
400 ml de leche
pizca de sal
30 grs. mantequilla


2 cebollines picados finos
400 grs. de espinacas
50 grs. de mantequilla
sal y pimienta para aliñar
250 grs. crema o sour cream
100 grs. queso parmesano rallado


Para preparar los crepes colocar en un bol la harina y sal ,
agregar los huevos y la yema de huevo, unir bien.Agregar la leche y batir un poco (con un batidor de alambre) para deshacer los posibles grumos.
Batir bien hasta tener un batido cremoso. Batir bien todos los ingredientes y dejar reposar unos 20 minutos excepto la mantequilla.
Despues agregar la mantequilla ya derretida.
Calentar un sarten de teflon de unos 24 cm. e ir haciendo los panqueques. Poner una cucharada y media mas o menos para que sea una película delgada.
Dejar dorar levemente y dar vuelta con una espátula para que se dore por el otro lado.
Ir reservando los panqueques en un plato.
Cubrir con aluza foil si no se van a usar de inmediato.
Para el relleno en un sarten grande con un ´pcp de agua saltear las espinacas ya picadas, hacer esto por unos dos minutos, luego retirar del fuego y estrujar el agua.
En un sartén calentar un poco de mantequilla y agregar el cebollín picado.
Sudar un poco. despues agregar las espinacas y unir todo bien revolviendo todo a fuego suave.
Sazonar con sal y pimienta y reservar en un bol.
Para armar los panqueques rellenos.
Tomar un crepe o panqueques y colocar en el centro una cucharada y 1/2 de la mezcla de espinacas,
Enrollar e ir colocando de a uno en una fuente de horno.
Hacer los panqueques necesarios.
Precalentar el horno a 180 c
Conuna cuchara esparcir la crema espesa o la sour cream, luego el queso rallado y llevar a horno por unos 25 minutos hasta que esté dorado y burbujeante.
Normalmente sirvo dos panqueques por persona y los acompaño de tomates u otra ensalada.
Se calientan bien en microondas si quedan para la noche.
