Broccoli & Bean Cheddar Quesadillas

I’ve really had a craving for broccoli cheddar soup. But you know what? It just takes too long to make.

When I want something, I want it RIGHT THEN. Hence, why I was not waiting around for a big bowl of cheesy broccoli soup to appear in my kitchen. And these broccoli quesadillas were a super simple way to get my brocc/cheddar fix in almost an instant (lucky for me, I had already cooked the beans earlier in the week). Having the ingredients wrapped in a tortilla brought my craving a step further because it also made me feel like I was enjoying a bowl a soup with a bread bowl-score!

4 whole wheat tortillas

2 oz or 1 cup shredded Daiya cheddar cheese

1 1/2 cups chopped broccoli

1 1/2 cups cooked Great Northern beans

1 small yellow onion, chopped

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 cayenne pepper, minced

Olive oil for frying

  • Cook onion and cayenne pepper in about 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat for about 6-7 minutes
  • Add broccoli and beans and cook for 3-4 more minutes, stirring occasionally
  • Add salt, black pepper and paprika and transfer to mixing bowl
  • Over medium heat in another frying pan, heat up another tbsp of olive oil for 1 minute
  • Pour 1/4 broccoli/bean mix onto one half of tortilla and top with 1/4 of cheese (2 tortillas should fit, folded, into a good size frying pan)
  • Cook on both sides until golden brown, about two minutes on each side
  • Repeat until all ingredients are used
