Have you got peppers and zucchini in your fridge? Would you like a new recipe to prepare them? Try these Zucchini and Peppers Filled Crêpes.
I go crazy for crêpes. I prepare them very often! They are nourishing (eggs, milk) and taste delicious. I eat them sweet filled with jam (like the plum jam or the strawberry jam or the cherry jam), or salty (like the White Mushrooms Crêpes).
This time I had peppers and zucchini and I didn't want to prepare the classic peperonata. So I created this dish. At the end it was a mouth-watering second dish you can also eat at room temperature (since it is too hot these days...).
Another second dish you can prepare with eggs is the Egg Tripe. Many of you could be scared by the word TRIPE. You immediately think of a greasy thing, fatty I'd say, and heavy. But it is only the name. Actually it is a complete and healthy dish. Nothing more than a luscious omelette with tomato sauce on it :-))). Try it and let me know!

Fill your crêpes with vegetables, close them in a triangular shape, put them in a oven dish and dress with the vegetable sauce you made before using 1/4 of zucchini and peppers.
