Broccoli and Cheese Crepe (with ham!)

I am a HUGE fan (and I mean obsessively huge) of anything broccoli and cheese! I can't believe I ever hated that beautiful vegetable!

Broccoli is full of vitamins A, C, folic acid, calcium and fiber (just to name a few!). Research shows it can help control high blood pressure, prevent colon cancer, cataracts, heart disease... what am I doing? You all probably know all this and more-so I'll just get straight to the recipe!

This dish makes a great light dinner (or even a fancy brunch item!). It is full of protein to ward off hunger pangs for at least a few hours, and contains a wide varieties of colors (which is a clue to its wide variety of nutrients!)

Ingredients (serves 2) :
-1 batch of crepes
-4 ounces chopped (fully cooked) ham
-1 cup broccoli
-2 ounces Velveeta cheese (for a lower calorie and fat version make sure to use the Velveeta that is made with 2% milk)

1. Chop and steam broccoli until it is tender-crisp
2. Chop ham into bite sized pieces
3. Drain broccoli and add your cheese
4. Melt in microwave, add ham
5. Make crepes according to recipe
6. Warm your cheese, broccoli and ham mixture again
7. Assemble crepe! You should have 4 crepes (if you followed my recipe for crepes), fill each crepe with 1/4 of mixture and fold over.
Optional: Reserve some of the cheese sauce to pour over crepes for a fancy touch :)

Nutritional Info: (1/2 of recipe)


  1. Crepes are oh so easy to make and even more delicious. Thanks for the idea! I dont have Velveeda, but I used regular cheese and it turned out fine. Next time I might make a real cheese sauce with some nutritional yeast OR steamed cauliflower, food processes it and then melt the cheese into it... hmmm... I truly miss the ease of processed cheese! Great job!
