A quesadilla filled with asparagus, tomatoes, cheese and spices! A great way to enjoy a healthy vegetable.
When we were in Tucson earlier this year, my mom and I made an amazing quesadilla for dinner. It had asparagus, grape tomatoes, onion, cheese……
But I couldn’t remember what else. And of course, I couldn’t find the recipe for the life of me. That’s when I decided to try and remember the flavours. After a couple of tries with different spices, I think I recreated it. Well, whatever I made, it was damn good.
|CHEESY ASPARAGUS QUESADILLAS
Add the steamed asparagus, tomatoes, and cilantro. Cook for a couple of minutes, until all of the flavours are combined. Transfer asparagus mixture to a bowl and set aside.
Wipe inside of skillet with a paper towel and spray with cooking spray. To make quesadillas, divide the asparagus filling among the tortillas, spreading it on 1/2 of the tortilla. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and fold the tortillas in half. Heat the skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tortillas and cook approximately 2 minutes per side or until golden. Repeat with remaining 2 tortillas.
To serve asparagus tortillas, cut in half and top with a spoonful of your favorite salsa.
I love the flavour of these tortillas. I especially love them with a little bit of salsa on top. These tortillas make a great side to chicken or fish. Last night, I served them with Asian Salmon. The combination was perfect!Print This
