Crepes with Sliced Peaches and Ricotta
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Number of Servings: 8
Cups of Fruits and Vegetables Per Person: 1
- 1 cup egg substitute (crepes)
- 1-3/4 cup fat-free milk (crepes)
cup all-purpose flour (crepes)
- 1/2 tsp salt (crepes)
- 1 tsp sugar (crepes)
6 peaches, pitted and thinly sliced (filling)
- 1-1/2 cups ricotta cheese (filling)
1 Tbsp sugar (filling)
- 4 Tbsp fat-free milk (filling)
- Combine the eggs and milk in a bowl and whisk
- Little by little, whisk in the flour, salt, and sugar to make a thin, lump-free
batter. If, despite your best efforts, there are still lumps, strain the batter
through several thicknesses of cheese cloth.
- Cover the batter and refrigerate for 2 hours. If the batter still seems too thick
- it should be the consistency of thick cream - thin it by beating in a little milk.
- Heat a 12-inch skillet, preferably non-stick. The pan is ready when a drop of butter
placed in it sizzles and spatters.
- Drop in a teaspoon of butter and melt it over medium-high heat, coating the pan
by tipping it from side to side.
- Pour a scant 1/4 cup of batter into the pan, quickly tipping and turning the pan
to cover the bottom. Pour off any excess.
- In a very short time, the batter will begin to have bubbles on its surface and the
edge will begin to pull away from the side of the pan. Using a spatula, turn over
the crepe and cook it just a moment on the other side.
- Remove to a covered plate and keep warm.
- Repeat until all batter has been used.
- In a bowl combine the ricotta, with 1 tablespoon of sugar and 2 tablespoons of the
milk and mix until creamy,
- Add more milk if desired.
- It should be easily spreadable.
