Healthy greens shine in these colourful spinach parsley crepes with stir-fried vegetables. When mixing the crepe batter, it’s important to use a food processor or blender to thoroughly mix the spinach and parsley with the rest of the ingredients. Try to make the batter as homogeneous as possible, so the crepes bake evenly. We like to keep this dish light and nutritious and serve the crepes with stir-fried vegetables that include zucchini, peas and pepper. The veggies are delicious alone, and even better served on these delicious spinach parsley crepes and topped with toasted pine nuts and fresh marjoram.
