Jyoti's Vegetable Crepes

Alternative Gear


Serves = 4

  • 2 medium sized zucchinis
  • 1 cup of wholemeal plain flour
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ cup fresh coriander (chopped)
  • 1 garlic clove (finely chopped)
  • ½ tsp grated ginger
  • Chilli powder (optional)
  • ½ - 1 cup of water
  • 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sweet chilli sauce (optional)

It’s this easy

  • Grate the zucchinis and add to a large mixing bowl
  • Add wholemeal flour, dried thyme, turmeric, cumin, garlic, ginger, coriander and chili powder (if using) to the zucchini. Mix all the ingredients together until well combined
  • Start by adding ½ cup of water to the zucchini mixture, and mix to combine. If the batter is too thick gradually add more water until you reach your desired consistency. (The batter should be thick enough to hold the vegetables together but not cause them to clump together and be sticky)
  • Heat a medium sized non-stick frying pan over medium to high heat and add olive oil
  • Add 2 Tbsp of batter per crepe to the fry pan
  • Cook the pancake for 2 – 3 minutes, until bubbles start to from on the surface of the crepe and bottom starts to brown. Turnover and cook the other side for 2 minutes until both sides are browned
  • Serve with sweet chilli sauce (optional)


  • Substitute the zucchini for grated beetroot or sweet potato, or shredded/ finely chop vegetables including broccoli, cauliflower or cabbage (you will need roughly 2 cups).
  • Depending on the size of your frypan, you may be able to cook more crepes at one time.
  • Adding more water to the batter will make a thinner batter, which will turn out more like crepes. Use less water for a slightly thicker consistency, that will resemble pancakes

What is healthy eating?

Eating healthy is making sure you enjoy a wide variety of foods from each of the five major food groups daily, in the amounts recommended. The five major food groups as recommended by the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating are:

  1. vegetables and legumes/bean
  2. fruit
  3. lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds, legumes/beans
  4. grain (cereal) foods, mostly wholegrain and/or high cereal fibre varieties
  5. milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat.

Foods are grouped together because they provide similar amounts of key nutrients and eating a variety of foods from the list above helps to promote good health and reduce the risk of disease.

By completing the Healthy Eating Quiz you’ll receive instant personalised feedback and a report on your diet quality to highlight any areas where you can improve your overall eating habits.

Is my diet healthy?

Dietary habits are different between people. Some people choose to follow a particular diet (i.e., Keto diet or vegan diet) while some have to make changes due to certain food restrictions or health conditions. If you want to know if what you usually eat is healthy, then do the Healthy Eating Quiz today to give you the answers in less than 10 minutes.

Why is healthy eating important?

Your HEQ score and personalised feedback report is based on the frequency and variety of healthy core foods you usually eat. This is important because no single food contains all the nutrients we need to stay healthy. Some foods are higher in nutrients than others and people who have a lot of variety in the foods they eat are more likely to be healthy and to stay healthy. In other words, if you can eat a large variety of vegetables as opposed to only 2-3 types of vegetables, the benefits are much greater. This type of diet also helps you to feel better, think better and perform better during your usual daily activities.
