Crepe Filling: Radicchio, Butternut Squash, and Walnuts

Yeah Baby, MORE CREPES! What else can I say? I’m still at it. (Check out some of our previous crepe filling posts. And also, brush up on how not hard it is to make crepes.)

This delicious filling boasts a whole lot of gustatory adjectives: sweet, bitter, savory, crunchy, chewy, cheesy — plus it’s nutritious and colorful, too. Hey, did you know that Parmesan cheese is the number one most umami-rich food? A smart friend told me this, so it must be true. Pass it along.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 small head of radicchio, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1½ pounds butternut squash, diced (¼" to ½")
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup crushed walnuts
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. When oil is hot but not smoking, add the onion and cook, stirring, until onion begins to brown (about 10 minutes).
  2. Add the radicchio and continue to cook until wilted and lightly browned. Stir in the salt and transfer mixture to a serving bowl or platter.
  3. Add squash and water to the skillet, bringing water to a boil. Lower heat and simmer, covered, until squash is tender (7 to 12 minutes, depending on size of cubes).
  4. Remove squash from skillet and add to serving bowl or platter. Sprinkle walnuts and cheese on top.
  5. You can mix up all the ingredients and fill the crepes before serving, or just bring the filling to the table and let guests roll their own.

  1. Thanks for the crepes recipe. It seems like radicchio, butternut squash, and walnuts make for some great ingredients during the fall months.
