Strawberry and Leek Quesadillas
June 6, 2011
This is a recipe/idea from another amazing blog that I love; Sprouted Kitchen
It is yet another blog that is all about fresh healthy food with some naughtiness chucked in. I love the style of the food and I love the photography… go have a look.
As you probably know I love fruit in salads, especially strawberries so when I saw this I had to try it.
You need (for 4 people)
3 large leeks
2 tsp olive oil
8 wholemeal tortillas
300g soft goats cheese
1 ball buffalo mozzarella
1 large punnet thinly sliced strawberries
seat salt and cracked black pepper
1. Remove the tough, dark green top of the leeks, only use the white and light green parts. Slice the leek in half and clean out any dirt and slice thinly.
Mix your goats cheese with a little dash of milk and the chopped chives (I used a small bunch)
2. Heat 1 tsp of the oil in a large pan and saute the leeks with a pinch of salt for about 10 minutes until softened and just browning in parts. Leave to one side.
3. Over medium high heat, warm the remaining tsp. of oil and lay down one of the tortillas.
All across the tortilla, spread the goats cheese and break up the mozzarella in small pieces and pop over, add as much/as little as you want of the leeks, strawberries, and a sprinkle of pepper.
Cover with the other tortilla (also spread with smaller amount of goats cheese) and cook about 2 minutes until the bottom is browned, flip the quesadilla and cook 2-3 minutes on the other side.
Slice and sprinkle some coriander if you have any.
I served with a potato salad which I will share with you soon, and sour cream and home-made guacamole. They were surprisingly filling and so good, I will definitely be making these again for a very quick and tasty meal.
Delicious and very filling, I would say half of one is enough for one person.
