Buckwheat Crêpes with Herbed Soft-Scrambled Eggs
- TOTAL TIME: 40 MIN
- SERVINGS: Makes 8 crêpes
When scrambled over low heat, eggs become luxuriously custardy and form small curds.
- 3/4 cup buckwheat flour
- 10 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1 1/3 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
- 1/2 cup mixed chopped herbs—chives, basil, parsley, tarragon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- In a medium bowl, whisk the buckwheat flour with 2 of the eggs and half of the milk until lump-free. Add the remaining milk and whisk until smooth. Refrigerate the batter for 20 minutes.
- Line a plate with wax paper. Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet and lightly brush with olive oil. Add 1/4 cup of the batter to the skillet and swirl to coat the pan. Cook over moderate heat until the edges begin to pull away from the pan, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Flip the crêpe and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute longer. Transfer the crêpe to the prepared plate and repeat with the remaining batter.
- In another medium bowl, lightly beat the remaining eggs. Add the herbs and salt. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the beaten eggs and cook over moderately low heat, stirring constantly until just cooked, about 5 minutes. Serve with the eggs with the crêpes.
