So, I have definitely been appreciative of all the Veg recipes shared with me recently and have used more than one so far - I am going to try most of them, I think. I wanted to share you my SUPER EASY and MEGA healthy quesadilla recipe which everyone here in the family eats, which is a rare thing.
Step 1 - using any or all vegies in your fridge, grate them all together (I use the grating tool on my food processor and it takes no time at all, such a brilliant invention). I made these last night and grated together: onion, pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot, zucchini, mushroom, spinach, corn and a can of 5 bean mix
Step 2 - in a large pan with a little oil and garlic, stir and stir until soft
Step 3 - on a wholegrain tortilla spread a layer of avocado and then a layer of refried beans. This is all I have, but DrMr adds Sweet Chili Sauce here, or you could easily put a mild or spicy salsa which would work brilliantly.
Step 4 - sprinkle some grated cheese on top and on half of the tortilla spoon and spread the vegie mixture, with some more cheese on top of that half if it takes your fancy
Step 5 - in a frying pan, heat a little oil on a medium heat
Step 6 - fold one side of the tortilla over so it's a half circle and put in pan, until it's golden brown on one side, flip it and brown the other.
Step 6 - Serve and eat, it's really delicious. We serve it with a dollop of sour cream to dip it in, but you could have salsa, guacamole or nothing. It's really, really tasty, super easy SO HEALTHY with a million hidden vegetables that just look like an unidentifiable mush for vegie haters out there. I usually make one each extra for lunch the next day, it's still good cold or reheated.
We usually have a pan full of vegie mix left over at the end, so what I will do tonight is reheat it with some basil pesto and spiral pasta and serve that as the second super easy dish from it, which is another one that everyone likes. Yum!
(ps; it's usually eaten before I can photograph it, so I used that photo from here)
(pps: we need some good vibes on our house for sale, which is such a tedious thing and our agent is giving us the shits and we think we might have chosen the wrong people to represent us. :-( Will trade you good vibes if you comment below what good vibes I can send you!)
(ppps: seriously, time to put some sunscreen on and enjoy the sunshine. Do it!)
