Spinach Crêpe

Recipe / Lisa Guy

This nourishing spinach crêpe combines elements of French and Middle Eastern culinary traditions. Baby spinach is an excellent source of folate needed to make red and white blood cells and for energy production. Spinach is also an excellent source of beta-carotene for good eyesight and vitamin K for healthy blood clotting and strong bones. These versatile crêpes can be filled with any filling you choose. They make a wholesome weekend breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Makes: 4 medium crêpes

½ cup spelt or gluten-free flour
⅓ cup milk of choice
2 organic eggs
Good pinch sea salt
Handful baby spinach
Small handful fresh herbs of choice (mint, coriander, parsley, basil)
Olive oil
Filling options: hummus, shredded cabbage, baby spinach, roasted carrots or sweet potato, tomato, crumbled feta, avocado, seeds, tzatziki

Blend flour, milk, eggs, sea salt, baby spinach and fresh herbs in a food processor.

Heat some olive oil in a medium-sized frying pan over medium heat.

When the pan is really hot spoon in ⅓ cup of mixture. Cook for 1–2 mins until it starts to bubble then run a spatula around the edge of the crêpe and flip. Cook the other side for another minute and then put on a plate.

Fill the crêpes with desired filling and serve.

Tip: For a thinner crêpe add a little more milk.

Wakame Cauliflower Fish & Chips

Recipe / Lisa Guy

This tasty dish gives a Japanese twist to a much-loved English favourite, fish and chips. Sea vegetables like wakame are a fabulous source of iodine that the body needs for healthy thyroid function. Cauliflower and potatoes provide plenty of dietary fibre, which helps slow down digestion and the absorption of sugars into the bloodstream. Eating fibre-rich foods with meals can help keep blood sugar levels more balanced. Keep the skins on the potatoes to give this dish an extra fibre boost.

Serves: 4
