I have a Quesadilla cooker and wondered what I would do with it as we don’t use cheese. These turned out really well though be careful not to over fill them (yeah right like I could manage that). I used them for a packed lunch and cut the Quesadilla’s in pieces with kitchen scissors along the lines made by the cooker. You can still easily make these in a non-stick frying pan. I will be experimenting with other Quesadilla recipes in the weeks to come. Need to use the cooker or declutter my kitchen pantry.

  • Whole wheat tortillas (looks for options with little added fat or sugar
  • humus (I added roasted red peppers and garlic to my recipe)
  • Salsa (use your favorite or make fresh)
  • finely chopped sweet peppers
  • finely chopped cilantro (optional)

Place one tortilla in Quesadilla cooker or on non stick skillet over heating element. Spread 2 TBSPNs Humus over the tortilla (mainly in the center if using the Quesadilla cooker) then spread 1 -2 TBSPNs salsa on top. Add 1/4 cup of chopped sweet peppers and cilantro to taste. Top with second tortilla. If using skillet cook until golden brown on one side and then flip carefully and brown the other side.

This is a very hearty sandwich filling for lunches with whole wheat bread and layers of salad greens.

  • 2 TBSPN parsley
  • 1 TBSPN mustard
  • Salt to taste
