Bánh Xéo

Apr 15, 2020

Allow us to introduce you to Bánh Xéo, or a Vietnamese crêpe. While it may look like an omelette, it’s actually egg free, but can be eaten as a savory breakfast regardless. The batter has to sit for a few hours before it’s ready to go, but the crêpes themselves can be whipped up in just 5-7 minutes for a tasty and unique meal.


Servings: 12 Crêpes

Work Time: 40 Minutes

Hang Time: N/A


Ingredients

For the batter:⁣⁣⁣⁣ 9 oz rice flour⁣⁣⁣⁣ 3 oz all-purpose flour⁣⁣⁣⁣ 2-3 tsp turmeric⁣⁣⁣⁣ 3.5 cup of water⁣⁣⁣⁣ 1 can of coconut milk⁣⁣⁣⁣ 1 tsp salt⁣⁣⁣⁣ 1 sprig of green onion⁣⁣⁣⁣

Steps

  1. Combine all batter ingredients (except green onions) in a medium Prep Bowl and for three hours or overnight. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
  2. Steam or soak your mung beans until soft. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
  3. On medium-high heat add 1-2 tsps of oil and some onions to your Big Pan. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
  4. Quickly add a few pieces of shrimp. Sauté until lightly browned. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
  5. Pour in some batter and quickly tilt the pan so the batter covers the pan evenly. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

Quick Tip

Bánh Xéo is meant to be eaten with your hands and served with a big pile of herbs. Try it with some Vietnamese fish sauce on the side for dipping.
