From garden to kitchen: zucchini crepe

Did you know that freshly picked zucchinis have very fine prickly hair? I know! Because I finally got to pick some! FROM MY GARDEN.

Yes, my zucchini plants are finally fruiting and I am so happy! (Note: I don't usually get so excited over vegetables but as I've been hand pollinating and obsessively checking them everyday, it's been a pretty hands on process and makes me extra proud of my harvest.). So lately I've been roasting, sauteing, stir-frying and eating zucchinis all sorts of ways and today I would like to share with you one of my favourite ways to cook and eat it - in a crepe.
Zucchini crepe (serves one)

Crepe:
1/2 cup plain flour
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
Pinch of salt

Filling:
1 tablespoon butter
100g fetta cheese
1 egg
1 zucchini, grated
Salt and pepper, to taste
Method:

1. Place crepe ingredients in a bowl and whisk to mix well to make a smooth batter

2. Grease frying pan and add just enough batter to cover the base. Cook over medium heat until golden. Then flip and repeat on other side. Remove from heat and put aside.

3. Add zucchini, cheese and egg in bowl. Stir to combine. Season to taste.

4. Melt butter in frying pan. Add the zucchini mixture and cook, stirring gently until egg is set.

5. Remove from heat and place filling in centre of crepe and roll to serve.

Hi Trishie, this looks so delicious and healthy. It's fresh too as the zucchini is from your garden. I will try to plant some zucchini this Spring. I will definitely try this recipe. You can also make zuccini bread just like a banana bread.

Oh my gosh. That looks so good! Do you have any tips on growing a garden for someone who doesn't have a green thumb?

This reminds me of an Asian style pancake that I make with zucchini. It looks super yummy!

Oh, this looks so yummy! Zucchini (or courgette as we call them here) are one of the few veggies that I really like.

It is satisfying to grow own produce and eat them. I understand your excitement. I also dream of having own garden and grow vegetables.

Yummy recipe.

To be honest, I rarely get to eat crepes that are savory. The last I made was with bacon & asparagus. Zucchini seems like a great idea.
