Quick Meals…Quesadillas!

I may be a pale redhead, but even I can get into the Cinco de Mayo spirit!  Here is a fun quesadilla recipe I put together…TWO versions!

Ingredients (for 2): 2-4 tortillas (I used whole wheat for a healthier option), 1  zucchini or squash, 1 package spinach (frozen thawed or fresh), a clove of garlic, 1 package seitan, 1 Tbl olive oil & 1 Tbl butter.  Garnish/condiments: sour cream & salsa!

Directions:


For both of the versions, saute up some spinach in a little bit of olive oil and crushed garlic.

Grate up about 1/2 a cup of cheese or so.


In a separate pan, saute the chopped up seitan and then add in the zucchini/squash (or even a pepper!) until cooked/no longer raw.

OPTION 1:

Spread out the spinach evenly between the two tortillas.

Sprinkle on the seitan and zucchini/squash.

Spread the cheese over the veggies and place the other tortilla on top.

Put the quesadilla in a lightly buttered and warmed pan (medium) until lightly toasted on one side.Carefully flip the quesadilla over, cover the pan with a lid.  Electric stove: turn off the heat/gas stove: turn heat down- let the quesadilla sit for a couple minutes (until the cheese has totally melted & both sides are toasted)

Option 1 done!

OPTION 2: 

If you aren’t quite as hungry or want an option for lunch, this one uses just 1 tortilla.

Put the spinach, zucchini/squash and cheese on one side of the tortilla and fold the other half over.

Put the quesadilla in a warm (medium heat), lightly buttered pan and toast one side.

Carefully flip the quesadilla over, cover the pan with a lid.  Electric stove: turn off the heat/gas stove: turn heat down- let the quesadilla sit for a couple minutes (until the cheese has totally melted & both sides are toasted)


Option 2 done… ole!!
