Savoury Asparagus Crepes

Savoury Asparagus Crepes
Serves: 4
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 8 green asparagus, peeled
  • 500 ml milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 200 g flour
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of fine salt
  • 1 knob of butter
  • For the garnish:
  • 4 eggs
  • 40 g grated cheese (cheddar, Gruyère, etc.)

Method

  1. Remove the tips of the asparagus and cut the rest into chunks. In a saucepan, melt the butter and brown the asparagus. Pour in the milk and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes until the asparagus is tender.
  2. Blend to a smooth mixture and leave to cool (strain if necessary). In a bowl, whisk the eggs with half of the asparagus milk. Add the flour, sugar and salt while mixing. Stir in the remaining milk.
  3. Heat the pan over a medium heat and wait until the Thermal-Signal has turned completely red before adding your ingredients.
  4. Ladle the batter into the pan and spread it out. Cook for 1 minute and then flip the crepe with a spatula. Cook for about 1 minute longer. Set aside on a plate.
  5. To garnish your pancakes: blanch the green asparagus tips for 2 minutes in a pan of boiling salted water. Cook the eggs and sprinkle with cheese. Top each crêpe with an egg and asparagus tips.
