Hummus Quesadillas

Hummus Quesadillas

These quesadillas are made with hummus instead of cheese, and they are absolutely delicious!

Makes: 1

Ingredients

  • 8 inch Whole Grain Tortilla
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup Hummus of Choice
  • Fillings of Choice: Spinach, Sun-dried Tomatoes, Olives
  • Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, for brushing
  • Optional: Hot Sauce, Pesto

Instructions

  1. Spread hummus generously over your tortilla. Lightly cover one-half of the tortilla with fillings of your choice. Fold the blank half over to create a half-moon shape. Repeat if you'd like to make more than one quesadilla; you can cook up to two at a time in the same skillet.
  2. Warm a medium skillet over medium heat. Place the folded quesadilla(s) in the pan. Let the bottom sides warm up for a minute or two, then carefully flip. Brush the warm sides lightly with olive oil and let them cook in the pan for another minute or two. Carefully flip once again, brush the new top side lightly with olive oil, and cook until the bottom is lightly golden and crisp. Carefully flip and cook until that side is lightly golden and crisp.
  3. Transfer the quesadilla(s) to a cutting board and let them rest for a couple of minutes. Then, use a sharp chef's knife or pizza cutter to slice each quesadilla into three wedges. Serve immediately. I enjoyed mine as-is, but you might like some additional hummus on the side, or perhaps some hot sauce or a dab of pesto.
