My husband absolutely loves this quesadilla I came up with during our quest for a plant-based diet. I have given up going full on plant based because it’s does not agree with me. I get really shaky with low blood sugar. I’m sick of lentils and tofu. So I bake chicken, grill sea bass and the like to add to my daily veggies.
This quesadilla is absolutely delicious though. Here’s what goes in it:
First I saute´ spinach in avocado oil and put the spinach on a plate. Then I use the pan to heat a tortilla on both sides. I found the most amazing tortillas at the farmer’s market. (The one in these photos is store bought and not nearly as good, because we ran out of the farmer’s market ones quickly.)
Next I sprinkle a quarter cup blend of finely shredded Mexican cheese on the tortilla and one slice of havarti. I top that with spinach and a quarter of an avocado in chunks.
Top it with pico de gallo or salsa and drizzle sour cream.
I let it cook until the cheese is melted and the tortilla crisps to a golden brown. Then I fold it in half.
What are your favorite healthy snacks? Do you have any simple recipes to share that I can add to my plant-based repertoire? Do you create your own recipes or use already written ones?
This looks yummy
That looks so good!
Avocado toast was the first thing that came to my mind. It’s something I make on a regular basis, and it’s both delicious and healthy.
Yes! I’m a big avocado toast fan.
Last week, I had an avocado toast BLT with aioli at a restaurant. Not exactly nutritious, but tasty. 🙂
That sounds delicious!
Yum :)..this looks simple and delicious.
Change out “tortilla” for “3 eggs” and you have a Delicious omelet that adds even more protein (and no carbs)
Sounds delicious, too! Great idea.
