Summer Vegetable Crêpes

July/August 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (261 votes)

Crêpes aren't just for dessert—they make a quick and savory weeknight dinner. Here they're filled with ricotta cheese, green beans, zucchini and corn and topped with a chive-cream sauce. Don't skip the step of placing a piece of parchment or wax paper under each crêpe as you fill it—without it, the crêpes are tricky to roll. Serve with: A tossed salad.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I couldn't find crepes, so I used puff pastry. It made it dry all together as a whole dish. But the filling by itself was wonderful. I'm a sucker for ricotta. ;) My husband liked the filling as well, but not the sauce. It was too lemony...

Just Try It!

I recently moved back home after graduating from college and have decided to make my contribution by cooking dinner and this recipe was easy and delicious! My family loved it and was ;) . I was happy to see how few calories were in them and even happier to taste how good all the vegetables were. I do have a few tips:
- in general, crepes can be found in the produce section of the grocery store and are easy to make if you absolutely can't find them
- I added about a cup and half of chicken (I just bought an already made rotisery chicken at the grocery store) towards the end after you add all the cheeses to get a little protein in there and it was a great addition!

If you think these look good, it's definitely worth a shot!

delicious, healthy, easy and filling!

Great w/cucumber instead of zucchini

I found pre-made crepes at Schnucks after a lot of searching (they were in the produce department, hiding at foot-level)--10 for $4.99! I'm in another city now and found 10 for $3.99. They are very convenient but would be much, much cheaper if made at home.

Anyway, the boyfriend's family loved them. I was able to stop at one, though I served these with a side of chickpea & tomato w/fresh basil salad. I will probably make these again, though with whole wheat tortillas (which are cheaper than pre-made crepes).

Okay, for the record, y ou

Okay, for the record, y ou DON'T BUY CREPES!!! You have to make them. Puff pastry will just not work. I am a intermediate cook and even I know that you can't buy crepes. There are some things you just can't buy in a store. You have to learn to make them.

Healthy and Delicious

These were overall very good and will def be made again in our house. We are not huge fans of ricotta cheese and thought maybe next time we would substitute for cottage cheese. Otherwise, the veggie mixture was great with the crepes and the sauce!

the sauce was AMAZING, crispy veggies were delicious, using crepe for a wrap!

Delicious and healthy!

I made these with cottage cheese instead of ricotta, and made my own whole wheat crepes which were SUPER easy to make, even on my first try. Maybe not the prettiest crepes, but they got the job done. I also used frozen corn and frozen green beans, and half yellow squash in place of some zucchini. Turned out fantastic! The sauce on top really completes it.

Simple to make
