1/2 pound spinach, well washed
1 tablespoon salad oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
About 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
Sour cream (optional)
Cut off and discard spinach roots and thick stems. Coarsely chop
spinach. In a blender or food processor, whirl spinach, eggs, and oil
until smooth; add flour and blend. Mix in milk; scrape container sides
Set a 6- to 7-inch crepe pan or other pan with sloping sides over
mediumlow to medium heat. When hot, add 1/4 teaspoon butter to pan and
spread over bottom. Add about 3 tablespoons spinach batter and tilt pan
until batter coats pan bottom. Cook until top looks dry, about 1
minute. With a wide spatula, turn crepe over and cook 20 to 30 seconds
more. Turn out onto a flat surface. Cover and keep hot. Repeat
process; stack crepes as cooked.
Serve crepes folded or rolled; top with butter or sour cream. Makes
about 16, enough for 5 or 6 servings.
