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.



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...

Very good and filling

Made this tonight and was very good filling meal. Used corn tortillas instead of creeps to make gluten free. Also used a can of roasted tomatoes and sauce for the topping instead of the sour cream sauce. Added mushrooms and chopped chicken too the mixture too. Family loved it and will be making this again soon!

Refreshing summer meal

This dished was enjoyed by the whole family, I thought the ricotta needed a bit more alternate cheese to help smooth it out but it was still very enjoyable. Since I made my own crepes I added cilantro leaves to the batter for the extra punch of flavor.

nice to add a meatless option that is so easy,

Great recipe! However, I am disappointed that in an Eating Well recipe you recommend 'ready to use crepes'. Crepes are super easy to make from scratch and use ingredients everybody has at home. It takes the same time to make the batter as to open a package! At a fraction of the price, and so much healthier. We need to learn to stay away from 'ready to use' and processed foods. That is the only way we will change the food industry and improve what is in our plate!!

Every cookbook has a crepe

Every cookbook has a crepe recipe and you can find hundreds on the internet. I had no idea you could purchase packaged crepes. It wouldn't even occur to me to buy them, that's how easy they are to make (and cheap).

Yummy!!!

These were delicious!! I omitted the green beans and added cannellini beans, red bell pepper and spinach instead. I also made my own crepes using a healthier whole wheat egg-white recipe I found online. I didn't feel that this needed a side dish since it was already packed with veggies, and I was right - it was very filling! One crepe was filling enough for myself and even my husband. I'd definitely recommend trying this recipe, you can sub in any veggie combo you'd want!
