Five-Minute Zucchini and Tomato Quesadillas

I haven't shared a recipe in a while, and this one seemed so appropriate tonight because it's what we ate for dinner! The fresh kale, zucchini and tomatoes that have been flowing out of the garden prompted me to, at about 6 pm, decide to serve a dinner based around those veggies. Thankfully, I had some organic, gluten free tortillas and cheddar and mozzarella cheese on hand. Voila! Dinner.

Here's what you'll need:
1 small zucchini (or a large one if you like them a lot!), diced
A handful of cherry tomatoes, diced
Butter for sauteeing
Herbs for seasoning (I used garlic, rosemary, pepper)
A touch of lemon juice, if you like
Shredded cheddar cheese
Shredded mozzarella cheese

I am not listing any specific amounts here because this is the kind of meal that you don't waste time measuring proportions when preparing- you simply throw it all together. Courage!
Start by throwing the diced zucchini, with some butter and your preferred seasonings, into a frying pan and saute just until soft. Add tomatoes and continue sauteing until warmed but still firm. This should take about 2-3 minutes.

While that's cooking, put some butter in another pan (I use three pans because it's faster) and warm a tortilla on low to medium heat with a couple handfuls of cheese.

You can see that I've got kale going here as the side dish. Here's my no-fail 5-minute kale recipe, which my entire family loves and is a lovely complement to these quesadillas.

When the zucchini and tomatoes are soft and warm, toss some onto the tortilla with cheese. Add another handful of cheese to help the diced veggies stay put, and put a second tortilla over the first. Turn the heat to medium if you haven't already. (And stir your kale if you're making that as well.)

Remove the quesadilla from the heat and let cool while you plate the kale (if you're using). Slice up your quesadilla and serve with fresh tomatoes or salsa, if you have some on hand.

Yummy, right? My entire family will eat these until they're gone.

And one more tip? If you do have leftover kale or veggies, dice the kale small like the zucchini and tomato and put it in the fridge overnight. It will transform your scrambled eggs in the morning! Nothing like gettin' your veggie on right off the bat!

Happy eating!
