Years ago I bought a nutrisystem cookbook, you know always on a diet. in it have have found several favorite recipies. One in particular, I have started eating every morning. I try to talk myself into something different, give it a go and return to my favorite before the week is up. This is my recipient for Blintzes.
The perfect Crepes
1 TBSP oleo
2/3 cup flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 egg whites
10 Oz skim milk
I combine the dry ingredients then add the liquid. It should be free of lumps. I heat a small non-stick pan, spray it with cooking oil, and add 1/4th cup batter. Tilt the pan quickly and let the batter completely coat the bottom of the pan.
Cook for 40 sec until it solidifies. Quickly flip the crepe over and cook for 20 sec. Repeat the process.
2 cups low-fat cottage cheese
2 tps lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 top sugar
Combine the ingredients. Place 1/4 cup filling in center of each crepe. fold crepe over filling forming a square packet.
Heat skillet and place blintz seam side down and cook for about 2 min. Turn over the blintz and cook 2 more min. Serve immediately.
This is the actual recipe. Personally I just mix the batter up and then refrigerate the unused batter for the next day. I also mix the filling up and save it. Then instead of making a fancy square I just roll the crepe with the filling inside and microwave it for 30 sec. (not much of a morning person, so I try to keep it easy) I have also tweaked the recipe as I have made it through the years. I skip the lemon peel, the salt, and the oleo.
Each Blintz has about 125 calories, I usually eat 2 a morning.
