Crepes with Mixed Berries &Gingered Agave Syrup

  • 1/2 tsp ginger, freshly grated
  • 5 tbsp agave nectar, divided
  • 2/3 cup skim milk, I use almond milk
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot
  • 3 tbsp white whole-wheat flour (King Arthur Flour)
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups organic mixed berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or strawberries), hulled and quartered, if needed
To make gingered agave syrup: In a small saucepan, combine ginger and
4 tbsp agave over medium heat and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and set aside to steep for at least 10 minutes.

To make crêpes: Combine milk, arrowroot, flour, egg whites, oil, vanilla, salt and remaining 1 tbsp agave in a blender. Cover and blend until smooth.

THREE: Lightly mist a small nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over low heat. Add 2 tbsp crêpe batter, tilting skillet to spread in a thin, even layer. Cook on one side only until center is cooked through and edges are browned, about
1 minute. Loosen crêpe with tongs or a spatula and invert onto a parchment- or paper-towel-lined plate. Re-spray skillet, re-stir batter and repeat, layering finished crêpes between parchment or paper towels.

FOUR: To serve, fold crêpes in quarters, browned side-out, and arrange on plates. Top with fruit, drizzle with gingered agave and serve.
