Zucchini Crepes – savory and crispy crepes made using a simple batter along with shredded zucchini.
Perfect for easy breakfast, brunches or even lunch.
I’m always on the lookout to make easy, healthy but tasty recipes and because of spring, we are so blessed to have a beautiful variety of veggies and fruits.
My absolute favorite this season is ‘Zucchini‘ – I mean the possibilities are endless.
Now zucchini being a neutral taste veggie, it easily blends with any kind of food…savory or sweet.
We have made muffins, bread, stir fry’s, french toasts and do many dishes with it….But have you heard of Zucchini Crepes.
It blends perfectly with the batter, adds so much body or texture to it and gives it an awesome taste.
It’s also a great way to introduce it to kids (If you peel the skin and grate, kids won’t even know what’s in the crepes).
So I recently made these zucchini crepes with a healthy mix of flour and they were a hit with family and friends.
I feel crepes is a great way to use those leftover veggies (like 1 carrot or 1 squash….I mean anything that’s 1-2 in quantity).
The batter is a mix of brown rice flour (made at home in my coffee grinder), whole wheat, cream of wheat (which is soo good for the tummy), yogurt and water.
Mix in the grated zucchini along with some ginger (they both taste great together) and boom – You have a healthy, scrumptious and filling crepe ready.
As mentioned above, these Zucchini Crepes can be used for breakfast or brunch and you can serve it with steamed veggies along with drink as meal.
I really hope you try this fun and easy recipe ….while I think of another healthy fun recipe idea.
