Crêpes are a flour dish made of eggs, milk and flour, used for frying thin pancakes, which are usually served with filling. The filling for crêpes can be sweet as well as savoury. Sweet fillings can be prepared from cottage cheese, jam, chocolate or whipped cream. As for savoury fillings, you can use meat, spinach or ricotta cheese. Plain crêpes are also a nice addition to soups, and if you cut them into thin strips, it is possible to serve them with broth.
A simple crêpes batter can be diversified by adding a vegetable purée to it, made for example from spinach. Vegetarian spinach crêpes batter is made similarly to the batter for regular crêpes, but with the addition of blended spinach leaves. After frying, the crêpes taste delicious served as a vegetarian dish with a savoury filling, such as cheese, or a meat dish filled with salmon or chicken filling. Spinach crêpes is a dish that can be served for lunch, dinner, dinner and breakfast. I recommend the following recipe for spinach crêpes and wish you a tasty one.
Ingredients for spinach crêpes.

How to make spinach crêpes.
Put fresh spinach leaves in a tall container, pour in water and blend. Add the eggs, salt, oil and milk, and mix together for a few seconds. Pour the mixed ingredients into a bowl, add the sifted flour and, using a whisk or a hand mixer, whisk the ingredients for about a minute, or until there are no lumps in the batter. Set the prepared crêpes batter aside for 15 minutes.
Place a pancakes pan or a non-sticky pan on the heat and warm it up. When the pan is well hot, reduce the heat to medium and pour the crêpes batter thinly into the pan. Fry the crêpes for about 2-3 minutes on both sides. Place the fried crêpes on a plate.
Good to know when making spinach crêpes.
The pan on which I fried the crêpes had a diameter of 24 centimetres. I did not grease the pan with additional grease, because the crêpes batter has oil in it. If you are using a pan that does not have a non-sticky coating, you will need a small amount of oil for frying.
From the given amount of ingredients, 10 crêpes can be obtained.
