Wholesome crêpes filled with a toothsome mixture of spinach, tomato and cheese, this is a scrumptious treat that no kid can resist. The creamy cheese and tangy tomatoes make the vitamin and iron-rich spinach filling very tempting for kids, while the addition of wheat flour to the batter ensures a good dose of protein and calcium. All the more reason for moms to love the Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Crêpes as much as their kids do!
