Roasted Vegetable Quesadillas


I love this fantastic Roasted Vegetable Quesadillas. It's packed with nutrients, smothered with pan roasted tomato salsa, and topped off with cheese. You can prepare the vegetables and salsa ahead of time. Just cook the quesadilla before serving. Try these simple fajitas and enjoy.


Roasted Vegetable Quesadillas

Ingredients

Roasted Vegetables
8 (6 to 7”) Flour Tortillas or any variety
1 Pack (380 g) Shredded Tex-Mex Cheese Blend
Pan Roasted Tomato Salsa
Lime wedges

Roasted Vegetables
2 Patty Pan Squash, diced~about ¾ inch

1 Green Color Zucchini, peeled and diced~about ¾ inch
1 Yellow Onion, peeled and diced
1 Red Bell Pepper, seeded and diced ~about ¾ inch
2 Scallions, roughly chopped
10 Small Button Mushrooms, quartered
½ tsp Chili Flakes

1 ½ Tbsp Olive Oil

Sea Salt To Taste


Freshly Ground Black Pepper





Method





Preheat the oven to 450˚F. In a large roasting pan, combine patty pan squash, zucchini, onion, pepper, scallions, mushrooms, chili flakes, olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until all the veggies are fully cooked and golden in color.


Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Place a tortilla in the pan and spread a layer of salsa on one side of the tortilla. Then scatter some roasted vegetables and top with a layer of cheese.

Fold the tortilla in half and then carefully flip over. Continue cooking, pressing down lightly with a spatula, until its other side is golden brown, crispy, and the cheese has melted.



Slide the tortilla onto a plate lined with greased proof paper or paper towel, and repeat with the remaining tortilla, salsa, roasted vegetables and cheese. To serve, cut each quesadilla into 2 or 3 wedges with some lime wedges and additional salsa, if desired.

  1. This looks really appetizing! I can taste the freshness just lookin at the picture. I can't find Tex-Mex cheese blend. I have Gardetto's and Shaw's, I hope they'll work just fine. Thanks for sharing.
