I have been so busy lately finishing up my post graduate program and working, I haven’t had much time to ‘play’ in the kitchen. Not being familiar with many vegetarian recipes, I turned to Google to help find some inspiration which lead me to Cookie and Kate.
Scrolling their website for simple meal recipes to add to my collection (that I hardly ever use), I found one for a Tomato, Olive, and Chickpea Quesadilla with a Dill Yogurt Dip. The dish looked quite simple to make (C&K claims it only takes 15 minutes) and I was hooked!
I adapted the recipe to match the ingredients on hand:
Vegetarian quesadilla adaption
- Instead of using one tortilla and folding it in half, I used two and mushed them together like a sandwich
- Instead of chickpeas, I used hummus
- Instead of kalmata olives, I used green olives
- Instead of Greek Yogurt, I used plain yogurt (definitely not the same consistency)
I found that by using two tortilla’s, I was able to spread everything out and I didn’t have to worry about not folding the tortilla over properly and making a huge mess! Also by substituting hummus and sliced tomatoes for the chickpeas and grape tomatoes allowed for everything to be nice and flat. After all, I did make a ‘quesadilla sandwich’.
The final result
WOW! Delicious does not even describe this meal! Another pro to making a ‘quesadilla sandwich’ was it could be cut into 4’s, which meant I had an extra slice 😋.
If you’re in the mood for something cheesy, light and easy to prepare then I highly recommend trying this recipe. Just like C&K claimed, it took less than 15 minutes to prepare and took only ~30 seconds to devour!
