Five-Minute Zucchini and Tomato Quesadillas
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!
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.
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.
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!
