it's pretty obvious that i love to eat quesadillas (i have previously posted about them here and here). tonight i was yearning for a yummy but quickly prepared meal so we opted for super simple broccoli and cheese quesadillas. they were so good (and david and i were deep into a discussion) that i forgot to take a picture! but, jack had a side of green beans with his quesadilla and i took these priceless photos of david and jack sharing green beans. i had to share!
first, cook about 1/2 bag of frozen organic broccoli in a pot of boiling water for about 6 minutes. while the broccoli is cooking, shred a large chunk of extra sharp cheddar cheese into a bowl. when the broccoli is finished cooking, drain it and set aside. when it is cool enough to touch, chop it into small pieces.
heat on large non-stick skillet or a cast iron pan over medium heat. place 1 large flour tortilla in the skillet and warm for about 45 seconds. flip it over and top half of the tortilla with a layer of shredded cheese, a scoopful of broccoli, then another layer of cheddar cheese. fold the tortilla in half over your filling (it will create a large half moon shape) and cook until golden and crisp on both sides. this will make 4 quesadillas. cut into wedges and serve with salsa verde.
