Summer Vegetable Crêpes

July/August 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (251 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.

"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...

I made this recipe tonight and it was a big hit. No doubt that I will make these crepes again very soon! I substituted broccoli and mushrooms for the green beans but I'm sure any combo of veggies would taste delicious wrapped in a crepe! I also added extra salt and pepper, garlic, green onions, thyme, basil, and extra chives from my garden. My fiance used an extra crepe to make a dessert out of chocolate sauce, bananas and vanilla ice cream (yum)!

FYI: I looked at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods for pre-made crepes or even a crepe mix and came up with nothing! So, I decided to make the crepes from scratch! I used the Whole Wheat Crepe recipe from this website (and just omitted the sugar from the ingredients). It was really easy and they looked like "real" crepes. I made them ahead of time and reheated them in the oven right before I rolled them (and that seemed to work fine)! I found them very easy to roll and didn't need to involve parchment or wax paper.


Looks wonderful ------but-----What or where is the recipe for the crepes that you put on the parchment that you put the filling in to roll up? Or are you using tortillas?


O M G ! I do not care for most vegetarian dishes. But, this one is delicious and it is suprisingly filling. I immediately sent it to my mom since they are on eternal diets. I would make even this for a dinner party any day and I am kown for my dinner parties!


This is a great, versatile dish! I added sauteed onion and garlic. Also, I lacked green beans, but threw in extra squash and zucchini and some red pepper for color. The cheeses provided a creamy base and it was a hit!


These were amazing. We made our own crepes which was very easy. They were very satisfying, and repeating what others have said, " I could eat these every night".
