I might be in a herbal rut. I am blogging about parsley again this week. I threw the herb in some ham crepes recently and was pleased with the outcome. They make a good light lunch or brunch.

First make your crepes. My recipe is low fat.

Basic Low Fat Crepes

1 cup skim milk
3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 eggs
1/8 teaspoon salt

Put all in a blender and blend to smooth. Allow to sit about 20 minutes before using. Heat a nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray until hot. In batches of 1/8 cup fill the pan and swirl the batter so that it is even in the pan. Cook until edges look dry then flip with a spatula. Cook underside until dry then slide the crepe onto a plate and repeat procedure until all batter is used. These freeze well if wrapped with wax paper between them.

Next make your filling

Ham Filling

2 each spring onions chopped
1 clove minced garlic
1 cup chicken broth
3 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
1 cup diced cooked ham
1 tablespoon cornstarch ( 1 to 2 )
grated low fat swiss cheese to taste

Wipe out your pan and spray lightly. Cook onion and garlic until soft then pour in broth. Add the ham and parsley and simmer about 5 minutes. Mix the cornstarch with about 3 tablespoon cold water and pour into the broth. Bring to a boil and cook until thick. Divide mixture between warm crepes and top with cheese to taste. Roll and place on plate seam side down to serve.

Enjoy, low fat and pretty good too.

    I always forget about crepes, which is silly, because they’re so good. Love this filling – especially the parsley ;)

    I’ve never tried making crepes before although I really like them a lot. This recipe seems simple enough to give it a shot and they look delicious!

    Dani they aren’t too hard to make. Mine are a little thicker than I would like though.

    Kalyn thanks.

    I, too, don’t make crepes enough. I seem to forget about them. Thank your for reminding me of this great alternative.
    And you can Never have too much parsley! Sometimes I just rinse it under cold water and eat it straight.
    Great dish. The plates are very pretty too, Casa?

    [...] Sue at Coffee & Cornbread in Southwestern Virginia, USA says she’s in a herbal rut, as it’s the second time she’s blogged about parsley in a week. She threw some parsley into her low fat ham crepes. [...]

What Spice Are You

You Are Cilantro

The bad news is that
there are some people
who can't stand you.
The good news is that
most people love you more
than anything else in the world.
You are distinct, unusual, fresh,
and very controversial.
And you wouldn't have it
any other way.
