Ingredients

Batter

  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter or olive oil
  • Butter for frying


Filling

  • 2 pounds asparagus ends snapped off
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 4 green onions diagonally sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt and black pepper
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons rice flour


Directions

  • Combine dry ingredients. In another bowl, combine wet ingredients. Add half the wet ingredients to the dry and combine with a whisk. Add the remainder of the liquid and whisk into a smooth batter. Let the batter sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  • Cut the asparagus into bite-size pieces on a 45 degree angle.
  • Place asparagus and water in a saucepan. Cover and cook for about 4 minutes over medium heat. Add the half and half and simmer 2 additional minutes.
  • Add the green onion, garlic, salt, pepper and lemon juice.
  • Thicken with the rice flour. Set aside.
  • Heat a 9 inch skillet and add a small amount of butter.
  • Add a ¼ cup of the batter. Tilt pan to spread batter thinly and evenly. Flip the crêpe when it turns golden brown and cook the other side until golden.
  • Place 2 to 4 tablespoons of filling on each crêpe and roll up.


Note: You can also transfer cooked crêpes to parchment paper or a plate,
cover and keep in the fridge for up to a week. They can also be frozen
between layers of waxed paper, and placed in a plastic freezer bag.
