This recipe for a lacy thin crepe—filled with tofu and fresh herbs. Eat well, and enjoy the taste sensations this weekend!
1/4 cups water
pinch of salt and pepper
1 cup tofu
1 cup beansprouts
1/2 cup onion, sliced
1 cup cucumber, diced
1 bunch spring onions (scallions), chopped
Mint, basil and coriander leaves, to serve
1/3 cup vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp water
3 tbsp caster sugar
1 long fresh red chilli, halved, deseeded, finely chopped
2-3 tbsp of sliced cucumber
1 bunch spring onions (scallions), finely chopped
-Blanch the beansprouts in boiling water.
-In a frying pan, heat just enough oil to cover the pan (tip off excess). Stir-fry the onion and tofu for a couple of minutes until golden. Set aside.
-In a large bowl, whisk eggs and water until well combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
-Pour a cup full of egg mixture into the pan. Swirl the pan so that the mixture spreads thinly. When the egg begins to crisp around the edge, add a spoonful of beansprouts, tofu and onion.
-Fold one half of the crepe over the ingredients and slip onto serving plate. Serve with fresh herbs and the sweet and sour sauce to taste.
