Whole Wheat Crepes with Spinach and Mushrooms
There are days when I want a good meal, but FAST and I mean FAST!! I am not a patient person:) Some would opt to go through a drive-thru or eat out, but remember I said good meal:) So what did we do the other night when we were starving and craving good, healthy food? We went to Closet Cooking and found a fabulous recipe to try!!
We stumbled upon Kevin's Spinach and Mushroom Crepes and thought they would be perfect for our hunger pains. We were right!! We made some changes to the recipe...we adapted it to our tastes and really what we had in the fridge. We added in some zucchini, used mozzarella and feta cheese, added fresh basil, etc.
The whole wheat crepes were perfect to roll up around our savory filling. I need to make these crepes more often. Maybe I will do a sweet version next time. They really were killer!
I also made a spinach salad with dried cranberries, oranges, and a raspberry vinigrette to go with too! We were eating good in the neighborhood...and in minutes! Thanks Kevin for the inspiration!
