I was wondering if there could be one person on this planet that doesn’t enjoy indulging on a warm crepe filled with melting chocolate spread and i said to myself, there mustn’t be … Then I thought about my profession as a dietitian and my passion and love for food and cooking, and i decided to create a recipe that would mimic the chocolate crepe effect with less calories, less fat and much more health benefits… And, the first thing that crossed my mind was the eggplant!
