What Do Vegetarians Eat

Being vegetarian does not mean that you can have delicious food. You can even prepare better meals than food with meat. Exotic fruit mix and simple crêpes recipes are two delicious vegetarian recipes.

Below are the two recipes for you to try out at home:

2. Simple Crêpes

You can make the batter for these ahead of time and store it in the fridge for up to 3 days in case you get addicted like I did and need them everyday!

Ingredients

• 3 eggs
• ¾ cup+2 tbsp all purpose flour
• 1½ cups milk
• 1 tbsp granulated sugar
• 1 tbsp vegetable oil
• Pinch salt
• 1 tsp butter
• Whip cream, for the filling
• A few good handfuls of strawberries, rinsed, stems removed and halved
• A few good handfuls of raspberries, rinsed and drained
• A few good handfuls of blueberries, rinsed and drained

Directions:

- Combine eggs, flour, milk, sugar, oil and salt into a blender or food processor; blend until smooth. Transfer batter into a mixing bowl, cover, and set aside in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

- Add the butter into a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once butter has melted, add ¼ cup of the batter into the pan and swirl around to coat the whole bottom of the pan. Cook until crêpe turns a light brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip over and cook second side until browned, another minute or so.

- Once crêpes are done, transfer onto plates and spray a line of whip cream down the centre; sprinkle on a few of the strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Fold in the sides and gently roll into a cylinder. (If you wish sprinkle on a little icing sugar for garnish).

Serve immediately.
