Summer Vegetable Crêpes

July/August 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (267 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...

AMAZING!

Wow, wow, WOW! I was a little worried about how this would turn out, but it was amazing! I couldn't stop myself from a second helping. These are very filling and could stand on their own as a main dish for dinner, but we had them as a side dish for barbecued chicken.
I was a little worried the cheese and sauce would just drown the veggies, but it's like all of the flavors marry together into a dish of amazing tastiness. The vegetable flavors aren't too strong, so even veggie haters will like this.
As others have said, you can easily mix and match veggies. I didn't have enough zucchini, so I used 1 cup zucchini and 1 cup yellow squash. However, I probably wouldn't make it if I didn't have corn. That added a nice mild sweetness.
I'm not a huge fan of ricotta cheese, so I substitute cottage cheese in it's place. SO GOOD! I think that made it better, but it's probably just a personal preference.
I couldn't find pre-made crepes, so I just made them from the recipe on this site. They were very easy to make (I messed up the first two, but I got the hang of it!).
Will definitely be making this again (perhaps tonight!).

So, so, so good

I made my own crepes which was super quick and easy. I also made adjustments according to veggies I already had: I used broccoli, less zucchini, frozen spinach and corn. The sauce on the top is wonderful and really makes the dish. It was a huge hit and will definitely be a repeat.

easy and delicious

Fantastic for Summer!

I love this recipe! Unfortunately the stores around here do not carry crepe wraps so instead I bought egg roll wrappers and stuffed them with the mixture. It was SO delicious!

Summer Fresh!

i've made this twice in the last month and really love it. i live in central europe and the first time i made it was fortunate enough to find ready made crepes at the supermarket. next time they were out so i made whole wheat crepes from scratch. excellent both ways. we don't have monterrey jack cheese here, so i used an irish cheddar.

easy and tastes healthy
