Zucchini and Pepper Crepes Recipe for an Effortlessly Elegant Meal Full of Flavor

You can cook up the crepes up to a day ahead to make this dish even easier on you

There’s nothing quite like produce when it’s the peak of growing season — that freshness is just filled with so much flavor. We’re also looking for new ways to enjoy all those veggies, and this Zucchini and Pepper Crepes recipe has become one of our favorites. 

We know what you’re thinking… Aren’t crepes best left to professional chefs? But we promise, our recipe makes it easy to whip up a delicious batch. And to really take the pressure off, you can make the crepes up to a day ahead, then wrap and chill. Just reheat in a low-temperature oven when you’re ready to make the filling. (And for another super-simple method, check out how to make crepes with pancake mix.)

Speaking of filling, we stuff ours with plenty of zucchini and red peppers for plenty of savory deliciousness. Arugula adds a peppery bite, while feta crumbles give it a salty zest.
