Southwestern zucchini crepe to breakfast or brinner.

img_20160928_105546

I had a zucchini sitting around, wanting to become something. The only thing I actually long to eat, most of the time, is breakfast. So the answer was clear: a zucchini tortilla. 

However, as often happens when I start making stuff up as I go along in the kitchen, my tortilla became more of a crepe. But that’s fine, because it ended up just as delicious. 

Use the basic template I have and then riff from it with whatever you have on hand. I had diced onion and a bit of jalapeno pepper that needed to get eaten so I threw those in. 

Top it with whatever you like: an egg is a must if you’re a fan of them. I wanted sliced avocados but I only had guac. That was just as tasty. Shredded cheese and salsa also made it to the final plate. Cilantro would make a perfect garnish, but I was fresh out. I guess it’s time for a grocery run. 

Whatever you choose, the recipe is simple. I’ve included the ingredients for 1 crepe, because it’s all about me. But you could easily multiply them. Enjoy!

Southwestern Zucchini Crepe
Serves 1
It's a flat thing; not quite a pancake, but softer than a tortilla. Who cares though - it's yummy!

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 zucchini, finely shredded (about 1/2 cup)
  2. 2 Tbsp diced onion
  3. 1 Tbsp diced hot pepper, such as jalapeno
  4. 1 egg white
  5. 1/2 Tbsp oat flour
  6. 1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder or other seasoning

  8. Dash of salt
Toppings
  1. 1 egg

  4. Chopped cilantro
For the Crepe
  1. Shred the zucchini and squeeze it in a paper towel to remove the excess water.
  2. Place into a bowl and add the onion, pepper, egg white, flour, and seasonings. Cook over medium heat in a skillet or griddle sprayed with nonstick spray for approximately 10-12 minutes, or until lightly brown on each side.
  3. Remove from heat and top with fixings.
Notes
  1. Chopped bacon would be outstanding. I'm always pro bacon. Always.
