Crêpes are always a hit and a spectacular dinner for company. During the Nine Days, if you’re tired of pizza and pasta, whip these up for something different, delicious, and healthy! If you feel they are too time-consuming, prepare the simple quiche version (see my note below for instructions). It’s easy, healthy, and just as tasty! Yields 15 crepes.



  • 1 cup milk

  • 4 eggs

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup flour

  • 1 teaspoon oil


  • 1 (32-ounce) bag frozen spinach, thawed and strained

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 1 tablespoon oil

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 1/2 red pepper, diced

  • 1 (8-ounce) box mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • pinch of pepper

  • pinch of nutmeg

  • 1/2 cup shredded light mozzarella cheese

  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese

Tomato Sauce Topping

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


Prepare the Crepes


In a blender or using an immersion blender, combine the milk, eggs, salt, flour, and oil until smooth.


Heat a skillet until quite hot and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of batter into the skillet and move it around very quickly, covering the pan completely with a thin layer. Repeat until all batter is used.


Meanwhile, heat oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until translucent. Add mushrooms and diced red pepper. Sauté for three to five minutes. Add garlic and spinach. Sauté until the liquid dissolves. Add salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Remove from heat and let cool. Stir in shredded mozzarella cheese and cottage cheese.


Place a crêpe on a work surface. Place a heaping tablespoon of the mixture on one side of the crêpe. Roll up, pulling the left and right sides in as you go. Fill all crêpes.

Prepare the Sauce


Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium heat.


Add onion and sauté until translucent. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, oregano, and pepper. Let simmer for 10 minutes.


Drizzle over each crêpe before serving. Delicious!


If you are topping your crêpes with store-bought marinara sauce, warm it first!
