Zucchini Crepes

Savory crepes with no sugar added and lower amount of flour than in traditional crepes due to usage of zucchini pulp – yes, count me in!

Amount of flour specified in the recipe is somewhat approximate. You may end up using more or less depending on how liquid the kefir is.

Generally you don’t want to get batter to thick for crepes to become too thick, but you also don’t want to make it too thin either because it will be hard to turn a crepe over when frying (it may tear).

So if crepe tears when you try to flip it, add a bit flour in before frying next one, or if it turns out too thick – add a bit of kefir to the batter.

Kefir makes crepes very tender, and may be somewhat hard to flip in general, so use smaller frying pan to make the process easier.

  12. Warm up a frying skillet. Smear it with a bit of oil (I just put a bit of oil on a paper towel and brush the skillet with it before frying each crepe). And fry crepes one by one:
    Ladle batter, pour it on a side of the skillet
    Ladle batter, pour it on a side of the skillet
    Rotate skillet to allow batter to spread
    Rotate skillet to allow batter to spread around the skillet
    Add more batter if needed to cover the base
    Keep rotating, add more batter if needed to cover the base

    Once one side ready, flip to another side
    Once one side is colored, flip the crepe to another side
    Fry until cooked through
    Fry the crepe until fully cooked through
    Transfer to a plate and smear with butter
