Quinoa & Kale Veggie Quesadillas

Veggie quesadillas are one of my go-to weeknight dinners,and I love this kale & quinoa version.Don't skip the tomatillo salsa for dipping!!

Quinoa & Kale Veggie Quesadillas

Aaaand meal planning week continues on Day 3 with these Quinoa Kale Veggie Quesadillas.Just to recap,I'm trying something new this week where I'm posting easy real-life meals in the order that we actually eat them.What does this mean?I went to the grocery store at the beginning of the week,I prepped a few components while making dinner on day 1,and I've been using those components and leftovers from the prior meal to make a different meal each day.One meal leads into the next,which makes cook/prep time a breeze.These meals are not culinary rocket science,but thinking like this helps me stay sane (and fed) every day – maybe it'll help some of you too!!

第1天:I started with theseMean Green Grain Bowls.This day involved the most prep – I roasted veggies,藜麦and assembled the grain bowls.

第2天:I took a small bit of leftovers from the grain bowls,按摩了一束甘蓝,and made those leftovers stretch into aBig Green Kale Salad.

Quinoa & Kale Veggie Quesadillas 第3天(今天!):Starting with some of the leftovers from day 2's kale salad,I lightly wilted the kale in a skillet with some quinoa (left over from day 1) and stuffed it between flour tortillas with cheese to make healthier-than-normal veggie quesadillas.If you're vegan,skip the cheese and spread a layer of refried beans onto the tortilla to act as the glue.

Serve these veggie quesadillas with lots of tomatillo salsa for dipping.Not pictured: I like to mash a little avocado with lime juice and a pinch of salt and slather that on my finished quesadillas.

I think these look SO cute as individual servings in these法尔康搪瓷馅饼盘。While the dishes got me in a picnic type of mood,it was snowing the night we ate these,so I discovered that they also make great TV trays.

These healthy veggie quesadillas are packed with roasted veggies,羽衣甘蓝,and quinoa.They're a fun,工作日晚餐快!!
Recipe type: Main Dish
Serves: 2 (4 quesadillas)
  • 2杯散装剩余Big Green Kale Salad
  • Extra-virgin olive oil,for drizzling
  • ¼ cup additional cooked quinoa
  • 4个大面饼
  • 2 cups shredded jack cheese* (see vegan option)
  • ½杯买来粘果酸浆莎莎舞
Optional,for serving:
  • Mashed avocado (to slather onto finished quesadillas)
  • 石灰楔,for serving
  • Sliced serrano or jalapeño peppers,or hot sauce
  • Cilantro,装饰用的
  1. 将中平底锅加热至中低,并刷上橄榄油。Add the leftover kale salad,the additional cooked quinoa and toss,lightly heating,just until the kale wilts,about 2 minutes.Remove from the heat and stir in a scoop of salsa.Season to taste.
  2. Assemble the tortillas with the shredded cheese and the kale/quinoa mixture.把锅擦干净,and heat it to medium,with a drizzle of olive oil.Fold each filled tortilla in half and place each into the pan (you may have to work in batches).Heat the quesadillas about 2 minutes per side or until nicely charred.I like to put a loose cover on so that the steam helps the cheese melt.Repeat with all quesadillas.Serve with the remaining salsa,the avocado,lime wedges,辣椒或辣酱,and cilantro,as desired.
If you don't have leftover kale salad,你可以用新鲜的,torn kale pieces.(about 2 cups).
