Spinach Crêpes
2 cups egg substitute
1 cup fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1 package (5 ounces) reduced-fat shredded Swiss cheese
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed dry
1 can (8 ounces) reduced-sodium tomato sauce

1 – Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Pour in 1/4 cup egg substitute, tilting pan to coat surface. Cook until lightly browned and set, about 1 minute. Flip crêpe; cook about 15 seconds. Slide crêpe onto dinner plate and cover with waxed paper.

2 – Repeat, spraying skillet as needed, until 8 crêpes are cooked and stacked with waxed paper.

3 – Heat 3/4 cup of the chicken broth until boiling. Mix remaining 1/4 cup broth with the flour, stirring until smooth. Whisk flour mixture into hot broth, stirring until thick. Reduce heat. Add nutmeg, pepper and cheese and cook, stirring, until cheese melts.

4 – Combine spinach with the broth-cheese mixture.

5 – With the browned side of the crêpe down, spread 3 tablespoons of the filling on one third of the crêpe. Repeat until 8 crêpes are filled and rolled.

6 – Lay crêpes in a sprayed 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Spread tomato sauce over crêpes. Bake at 375°F 25 to 30 minutes.
