Do you ever struggle to come up with interesting lunches for yourself? I know I do, all to often I fall back on a simple ham sandwich or crackers with cheese, and whilst I fill my kids’ plates with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, I’m pretty good at avoiding vegetables myself! I’m making a real effort to improve my own eating habits though and today’s recipe for vegetable stuffed pizza quesadillas makes a great alternative to boring sandwiches. This recipe sneaks in lots of yummy vegetables, great for grownups as well as kids!
Vegetarian Pizza Quesadillas
Easy vegetarian pizza quesadilla recipe – a quick and healthy lunch idea that is ready in just 5 minutes.
2wholemeal tortilla wraps
handful grated cheddar cheese
large handful fresh baby leaf spinach
Prepare the fillings – wash and chop the spring onions, de-seed and chop the red pepper, wash and dry the spinach.
Lay one of the tortilla wraps in a large frying pan. Spread the tomato puree over the tortilla, then sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese over the top. Add the spring onion and red pepper, then top with the spinach leaves.
Place the second tortilla over the top to form a sandwich with the fillings in the middle.
Dry-fry the tortilla for a couple of minutes until the base is golden. Once the base is cooked, pop a plate on top of the pan and flip the pan over, then carefully slide the quesadilla back into the pan to cook on the other side. Cook for a few minutes more until the cheese is melted and the quesadilla cooked through.
Slide the quesadilla out of the pan and onto a chopping board and cut it into 8 wedges, then serve immediately. The quesadilla can also be cooled and popped into a lunch box to eat cold.
