A Green… Quesadilla?


What happens when a girl only has half the ingredients for her favorite dinner? Magic. My latest creation is inspired by two of my favorite recipes, the Green Goddess and Green Pizza. Meet their love child, The Squeaky Green Quesadilla:


So what did I do? I slathered some pesto on a tortilla, added lightly steamed broccoli florets, topped with sliced Havarti and covered with a second tortilla. After five or so minutes in the Griddler, it was golden brown and ready to eat.

Was the experiment a success? Yes, but it wasn’t quite perfect. Using sautéed or roasted broccoli would enhance its flavor, but if you’re looking for a quick and easy meal in less than 15 minutes you can’t go wrong with this one.
