Blinis!

The weekend is already over and I am sad I need to get up so early tomorrow morning. Since 3 weeks now I started rotations in the dermatology ward of a Parisan hospital and it is really exhausting.My week-end was pretty random and very quick since I had to work at the hospital on saturday morning. Saturday afternoon I napped and tryed to study, but wasn’t succesful at all. Instead , I made blinis for the halloween party I attended on saturday night ! Seems like I always have time to cook when I don’t want to study :). And Sunday was spent relaxing and chilling.

On saturday I made blinis for a potluck party. Blinis are small salty pancakes and they come from Russia. I make them a lot for parties because they are perfect to be spreaded with all kinds of good stuff : hummus, tzatziki and any kind of delicious and healthy dip!This recipe is very easy to make and you don’t need a lot of ingredients to put this together! All you need is a pan, a greek yogurt, some flour and eggs.

For more fun, I like to make them two ways. I use buckwheat flour and spelt flour ( but those work great with whole wheat flour). Using these two flours makes coloured blinis which is beautiful to look at. I like to spread the blinis with tzatziki or with philadelphia and smoked salmon. But you can use all kinds of spreads on them.
