Company’s Coming – Quick Spinach Quesadillas

by Tammy Taylor

Sometimes unexpected company comes to visit and lunch time rolls around – what to make that’s quick and guest-worthy?  My go-to idea is quesadillas.  It’s filling, delicious and quick to fix.

I have a very heavy cast-iron griddle that fits across two of my gas burners on the stove so I fire them up and get the griddle good & hot.  Then I toss on some olive oil and chopped onions and cook them until they are soft and translucent.

I step out onto the front porch where I have my edible landscape garden (you can read about it here) and pick some fresh spinach.  I wash and chop it and throw it on the griddle for only a minute to soften it.

Now I scoop the onions & spinach into their own bowls and spread another thin layer of olive oil on the griddle and start layering my ingredients:  Tortilla, cheese, onions, spinach, cheese.  The cheese on both the first & last layer keeps the quesadilla together as the cheese melts. Ummmm…. starting to smell really good.

Another 30 seconds or so and the quesadilla is ready.  I use a dollop of my homemade yogurt as a low-fat substitution for sour cream (you can read about that here) and in less than 7 minutes you have lunch.  Enjoy!

    This looks great. We eat a lot of cheese quesadillas and spinach salads, but I never thought to put them together! Thanks for sharing this. Each Monday, I have a Meatless Meal link up. I would love it if you’d share this recipe with my readers. If you’re interested, you can find the link at http://www.LittlestSweetPea.com Thanks!
