Green Quesadillas
Serves: serves 2
  • 4 tortillas (I used Whole Foods' 365 spinach tortillas)
  • a few handfuls of cheese: cheddar, jack, or vegan Daiya
  • a few handfuls of sliced greens: collards, spinach, etc.
  • ½ jalapeƱo, sliced
  • a few sprigs of cilantro
quick pickled shallots: (make ahead)
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • white wine vinegar (enough to fill the jar of shallots)
  • a few pinches of cane sugar and salt
optional toppings
  1. Make your pickled onions: place ingredients in a small jar, shake it and chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes (they'll keep for at least a few weeks).
  2. Pile cheese, greens, jalapeƱos, cilantro, and a few pickled onions onto tortillas. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Fold the tortillas in half and cook quesadillas for a few minutes on each side, until the cheese is melted.
  3. Enjoy as-is or with toppings of your choice.
Make these gluten free by using gluten free corn tortillas.
