Basic Crepes

&
Butternut Squash Soup


Basic Crepes
Ingredients

125 g all-purpose flour
2 eggs
120 ml milk
120 ml water
2 g salt
30 g butter, melted

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.





Butternut Squash Soup
Ingredients:

8 small Squash
4 small onions
16 cloves of garlic
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and Pepper
Ginger
Ground Cinnamon
Ground Cloves

Directions:

Cut the top of the butternut squash and core the inside out.
In a pot at high heat add the oil and fry the diced onions and the chopped garlic.
Add the squash and fry for 3 minutes.
Add the spices and cover with boiling water and cook for 20 minutes or until the squash is soft.
With a hand blender, puree and soup, add some cream to it and boil for 2 minutes.

Chef's Tip: Serve with a Hardy Bread (A L'Encienne or Paysan)
