Whole Wheat Spinach and Feta Crepes

Whole wheat spinach and feta crepes. A fast and easy healthy vegetarian dinner


While I would love to eat desserts for dinner (cookie pizza anyone?) I know I need to eat something that is not only sugar.

Also, I have a strange confession to make. The past couple of days, I have been getting sick of desserts. Like, thinking about eating something with a lot of sugar in it makes me feel sick. I am craving all the salty foods.

I think it's because of my boss. He is the baker in the office...mainly because I keep my baking abilities to myself. But oh my goodness, he makes the best cookies ever! At least once a week, he bakes cookies or muffins for us. This week, he baked two cookies that looked exactly the same, and told us to taste test them. He didn't tell us which one is which, but one was made from lindt chocolate, and the other was made with store brand chocolate.

We all chose the one that was made with lindt chocolate as being better.

Then, on the very same day as the cookie taste test, it was one of my coworker's birthday, so we all had the most gorgeous cupcakes.

And I think that was the day where I had a mug cake for breakfast, I am now officially sick of sugar.

I'm telling myself that this is just a phase. I will probably be making cupcakes on the weekend.

But in the meantime, I will be making these crepes.

These crepes were inspired by me going to this place called "Cafe Crepe" in Vancouver constantly. Not only do they have the best fries around (who knew that I would find awesome fries at a crepe place?) they also had my favorite spinach and feta crepe.

And while I am in Toronto, I will be making these crepes at home until I come back to Vancouver for the holidays. And since I have an abundance of whole wheat flour, I thought: why not make them healthier by using only whole wheat flour?

Who knows. I may not even need to go back to my favorite crepe place. Except for when I want fries.

  5. These look amazing! I'm like that too- I love savory foods and when I get food cravings, they're typically savory rather than sweet... not to say I don't love my desserts!

  10. Deee-flippin'-licious :D How many crepes does this recipe make altogether?
    I love how you found your favourite fries-supplier in a crepe place, we know it all makes sense...(?!) Haha, I totally get what you mean when you say you've had enough sweet stuff, you'll track down some cupcakes in a few days, I betcha! Even if you do have to make them yourself ;) I hope you've had a great weekend! x

  11. Your crêps have a lovely color from the whole wheat flour that you used in the batter - what a wonderful treat to enjoy these with fresh baby spinach and delightfully salty feta!

  12. mhm wholewheat savory crepes with a gorgeous feta and spinach combination. =)
    I know what you mean, I feel the same way about sweet foods. Maybe you got a sugar shock? For the past 3 years I changed my food habits, I don't like sweet treats anymore and I hate adding sugar to my coffee. But I am still going for jam, honey and dark chocolate. =D

  14. I know what you mean - I bake all the time, and sometimes it's good to detox and crave only savory things. These crepes look amazing, and I love the fact that they are made with whole wheat flour!

  15. Your crepes look super delectable - and I agree (though I can't make savoury well at all :P) - a bit of a baking break is always good!

    Cheers
