- For the Crepes:
- 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted, plus more for cooking
- 2 teaspoons cane sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Simply Organic® Pure Madagascar Vanilla Extract or Simply Organic Non-Alcoholic Vanilla Flavoring
- 1 pinch sea salt or Himalayan pink salt
- 2 teaspoons Simply Organic® Rosemary, crushed (see Recipe Tip)
- 2 teaspoons orange zest
- Pomegranate arils, for garnish
- For the Syrup:
- 1/3 cup pure pomegranate juice
- 1/2 cup honey
- In a blender, combine milk, flour, egg, butter, sugar, vanilla and salt. Pulse, scraping down sides if needed, for 10 to 15 seconds, until well blended. Refrigerate batter for at least 2 hours or over night.
- Remove batter from refrigerator and let sit for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees and place 1 or 2 baking sheets in oven to keep crepes warm after cooking.
- Add rosemary and orange zest to batter and stir until well combined.
- In a cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat butter.
- Once hot, pour a scant 1/4 cup batter in the center of the pan. Tilt pan in a circular motion until batter is as thinly spread out as possible. Cook for about 1 minute, until the edges start to brown and lift away from the pan.
- Carefully flip and cook for 30 more seconds, until golden brown. Place crepe in oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter, gently stirring batter before scooping each time and placing each finished crepe in a single layer in the oven.
- Remove crepes from oven, roll each crepe or fold into quarters. Top with pomegranate arils and syrup, then serve hot.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, combine pomegranate juice and honey. Stirring, bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and let cook, stirring frequently, for 10 to 15 minutes, until a thin, syrup-like consistency is achieved.
- Pour into a bowl and refrigerate until chilled and thickened. Remove from refrigerator and bring to room temperature before using, if desired.
- To crush the rosemary, place about 1 tablespoon in a clean coffee grinder, spice grinder or mortar and pestle. Grind until rosemary is broken into pieces but not ground into a fine powder.
