Zucchini flowers

I bought zucchini seeds and planted them in a big pot.  Living in Iceland I did not think nothing would happen, I kept it inside and what did happen is I got lots of zucchini flowers.



 Zucchini flowers

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk (or so, should look like a pancake batter, add more milk if you need).
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tbsp melted butter or bit of some oil
  • Quite a bit of zucchini flowers, about 2-3 per person

Make the Crepes batter by mixing the ingredients in a bowl. Mix the flowers with the batter take it up and fry it on a pan. Easy as that!  If you have more crepes batter left, just make some pancakes.

Crêpes

One of my favorite food is Crêpes. I have so many good memories from Canada where we made crepes in the mornings when we had a sleepover at friends house. (Too much wine and saving a cab ride)

I ´m not a sweet tooth so I always make my crêpes savory. The morning crêpes have just what´s in the house. Usually all kinds of cheeses, ham, bell pepper, spring onion and spices. (oregano, basil, salt, paprika….)

But my “in the evening” or “for lunch” crêpes are more stuffed and so delicious!

Crêpes

  • Crêpes (recipe below)
  • Boiled rice
  • 1 red pepper
  • Leek
  • good ham
  • Cheese
  • Mustard sause (recipe below)
  • Oregano
  • Basil
  • Paprika

Boil the rice.
Bake the Crêpes pancakes.
Dice the ham, red pepper, leek and cheese.

Usually I bake all the crêpes at once and then put back on the pan and fill them up one and one.

First I put the cheese, then ham, sauce, rice, red pepper and leek. Finally the spices. Fold it and heat as long as necessary. Usually just couple of minutes to melt the cheese if the rice are warm.

Mustard sauce

  • Sour cream
  • Sweet mustard
  • Dijon
  • Mable syrup
  • Salt

Dash of this and dash of that, to taste. If you like garlic you could add a little bit of garlic.

If you don´t like mustard a garlic sauce is also good with this. Same recipe, just skip all mustard and add garlic and some olive oil.

I´ve made this for a larger group than just two. Then I made all the crêpes at once and put it in a oven proved dish and heated it in the oven.
