Dinner in a Flash! Zucchini Quesadilla Recipe

Zucchini Quesadillas
serves 2

2 whole wheat tortillas
½ cup cheddar cheese, grated
½ zucchini, washed, trimmed, and cut into a fine julienne
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground white pepper
thinly sliced red onions for garnish (optional)

Place a 10 or 12 inch skillet over medium-high heat and drizzle in 1 tablespoon olive oil. When it’s hot add the zucchini and sea salt, and saute for 4 minutes, until wilted and brown. Remove from pan and set aside.

Add half the remaining oil, heat, and then add a tortilla. Heat for a minute, add the cheese on one side, along with the pepper. Edge heat down to medium, add the zucchini, and fold. Cook on each side a minute or two.

Repeat for the second tortilla.

Slice, garnish with red onions of using, and serve.
