Egg Crêpes with Spinach, Tomatoes and Cheese

Egg Crêpes with Spinach, Tomatoes and Cheese

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

You'll get a good dose of protein from these flour-free crêpes. For a delicious alternative to Gruyère cheese that's also lower in fat, try smoked mozzarella.
  • 1 ½ tsp. olive oil
  • 3 shallots, thinly sliced (about ½ cup)
  • 1 5-oz. bag fresh baby spinach (about 5 packed cups)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper, divided
  • ¼ tsp. salt, divided
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 3 Tbs. nonfat milk
  • 3 oz. Gruyère cheese, grated (about 1 cup)

1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots, and sauté 3 minutes. Add spinach, and sauté 3 minutes more, or until wilted. Add tomatoes, and sauté 3 minutes more, or until tomatoes are soft. Stir in 1/4 tsp. pepper and 1/8 tsp. salt. Set aside and keep warm.

2. Whisk eggs, egg whites, milk, remaining 1/4 tsp. pepper and 1/8 tsp. salt in medium bowl. Coat nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium-low heat. Pour 1/2 cup egg mixture into pan. Cover, and cook 2 minutes, or until crêpe is just set.

3. Sprinkle 1/4 cheese over crêpe. Spoon 1/4 spinach mixture down center of crêpe. Loosen from pan with rubber spatula, and fold sides over filling.

4. Slide onto plate. Repeat with remaining egg mixture, spinach mixture and cheese to make 4 crêpes.

isn't this an omlete?

The difference between omeletes and crepes is that the egg crepes are much thinner than omeletes and they can be used with fruit and also sweet ingredients where as the omeletes are mainly with meats, cheeses and vegetables.
