Spinach Crepe Rolls

May 21, 2016

Ingredients

Spinach crêpes

  • 80g of spinach
  • 4 eggs
  • 180g of plain flour
  • 170ml of milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of pepper
  • 3 tsp sunflower

White sauce

  • 50g of plain flour
  • 50g of butter
  • 500ml of milk
  • 1/2 tsp English mustard
  • 70g of cheddar, grated

Filling

  • 400g of chicken/ salmon meat
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stick, finely chopped
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of pepper
  • 1 dash of sunflower oil

Instructions

  1. Fill a pan with water and place over a high heat. Bring to the boil, add the spinach and cook for 20 seconds until wilted
  2. Drain the spinach thoroughly, rinse under cold water for 30 seconds then squeeze the remaining juice from the leaves and finely chop them.
  3. Whisk the eggs and flour together in a large bowl, then add the milk – feel free to add more milk if the batter is too thick.
  4. Add the spinach along with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. Place a frying pan over a medium heat and wipe the surface with oil. Once hot, add a ladleful of pancake mixture to the pan.
  6. Tilt the pan to evenly spread the batter across the whole surface. Cook for 1-2 minutes, then turn over and cook for a further minute.
  7. Repeat this process to make the rest of the crêpes, then allow to cool.
  8. Add the butter, flour and milk to a heavy-based saucepan over a medium heat and whisk constantly until the sauce heats and begins to simmer.
  9. Add the mustard and cheddar cheese and leave the sauce to simmer for 2-3 minutes to cook out the flour. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  10. Place a pan over a medium heat and add oil. Once hot, fry the onions, red peppers and celery for 3-4 minutes until soft but not coloured.
  11. Add the chicken/ salmon meat, a pinch of salt and pepper and a few spoonfuls of the white sauce to bind the mix together.
  12. Preheat the oven to 375 F and place the crêpes on a plate or board and spoon some of the mix lengthways down the centre of each. Roll the crêpes up around the filling.
  13. Lay the crêpes next to each other in a baking dish and pour the remaining sauce on top. If you wish, sprinkle a little more cheese on top and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  14. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with your chosen accompaniments.
