Quesadillas



Whenever I go to Uno's here in the US, I always order their Farmers Market Deep Dish Pizza....I know...I know...its full of calories....but then I don't go to Uno's so often.....maybe once in 6 months. So I guess its OK. Anyways, this time when we went there I wanted to try something different and so I ordered Roasted Vegetable Quesadilla. I liked it a lot and decided that I have to try and make it at home because well....you know...Home cooking is healthier...:-)

Then I came across Ashlee's recipe and decided that I had to cook these. I made slight modifications to it. So here I was trying out this recipe. And it turned out amazing. Even my daughter ate all of it.

I like to use multi-colored peppers to give more colors, but the day I made these I had only green peppers in my fridge - so I used only those. Thats why the vegetable filling looks so green.

1 onion, chopped fine
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 cup frozen/baby spinach
1 tblsp Olive oil
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Cheese Spread
10-12 pieces sundried tomtaoes, reconstituted (Put them in hot water for 10 min)

  2. Add the rest of the vegetables and stir-fry till soft and completely dry of water.
  3. Add salt and pepper.
  4. Pulse all the ingredients under spread to a crumpled mixture.
  5. Heat a griddle. Spray oil on a tortilla and place it on the hot griddle. Let it cook lightly on one side - about 30-40 sec. Flip it over and cook the other side till you can see small bubbles forming. Now sprinkle a little cheese on one half. Put 2-3 tblsp of vegetable filling on top of this. Top it with 1-2 tblsp cheese spread. If you like sprinkle a little more cheese on top of this. Cover this with the other half of the tortilla. Cook both sides till slightly crisp and brown.
  6. Cut into 3 traingles (like a pizza slice) and serve hot with sour cream.
