  • 1/2 pound bean sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Wrapper

  • 1 cup corn starch
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • non-stick cooking spray or oil

Peanut Sauce

  • 5 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 6 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 cup unsalted peanuts, ground

Instructions

  • In a wide pan over medium heat, heat oil. Add onions and garlic and cook until softened.

Wrapper

  • In a bowl, combine cornstarch and water. Whisk together until smooth.

  • Add 1/4 cup batter and gently swirl to cover the bottom of the pan.
  • Cook for about 30 to 40 seconds. When edges begin to pull from sides and small bubbles begin to form in the middle of crepe, gently flip to other side using a spatula.
  • Cook for another 10 seconds or until the top is firm and dry.
  • Remove the crepe wrapper from the pan by gently sliding onto a plate. Repeat with remaining batter, spraying the pan with nonstick cooking spray in between cooking.
