Spinach Quesadilla

Spinach Quesadilla

Do you ever go through phases when you are absolutely obsessed with a food?  Where you could eat it with every meal?  This can last days or weeks, and then just as quickly as the obsession started, it ends.

I am currently going through a spinach phase.   Why?  Don’t know…maybe my body is telling me that it needs more folic acid and Vitamin A?  I have happily been munching my way through the green stuff for the last few weeks.   Handfuls into my morning smoothie, spinach salads at lunch and I have been making spinach quesadillas for dinner after being inspired by another blog post.

I’m not sure how long this phase is going to last, but I am going to keep enjoying my spinach…at least this is a healthy obsession.  Who knows…the next one could be chocolate 🙂

What’s your latest food obsession?

Spinach Quesadilla (for two)

I usually use two large bunches of fresh spinach but you can also use frozen spinach.   Once the spinach is washed, throw it into a large pot with a little bit of water and cook on medium high until wilted (about 5 – 10 minutes).  It will look like too much spinach, but remember that it reduces by about three-quarters when cooked.

While the spinach is cooking, saute about 1/2 diced onion in a little olive oil.    Mix the spinach and onion together and add grated cheese – I use a combination of mozzarella and feta.  You can also toss in some grated firm tofu if you want.

Heat a large skillet on the stove, then place one tortilla down, spread the spinach & cheese mixture on top and then place one tortilla on top of this.   After 5 minutes (or when browned on the bottom), invert the quesadilla onto a plate and slide back  into the skillet to brown the other side.    When done, cut into quarters and serve.

I promise that this sounds like more work than it actually is…

    At least you’re obsessed with something that’s good for you. It worked well for Popeye.

    I’ve been going through an asparagus thing, what with all the fresh Ontario asparagus in the market. Not quite so attractive was my Allen’s green licorice laces phase.
