Creamy Spinach Quesadillas Recipe
Recipe type: Main Dish
Serves: 4-6 quesadillas
  • 4 cups spinach leaves (or other dark leafy greens of your choice), roughly chopped
  • ½ of a medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
  • 1 medium tomato, finely chopped
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1½ cups shredded cheese of your choice
  • Flour tortillas
  1. In a medium frying pan, sauté the onion in the butter until the onion is soft and translucent.
  2. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes more.
  3. Add the spinach/greens to the pan and allow them to wilt for 3-4 minutes. It will look like a massive quantity at first, but will quickly reduce in size.
  4. Place the cream cheese, tomato, and shredded cheese in a separate bowl. Add in the spinach/onion mixture.
  5. Stir to combine. Spread two to four tablespoons of the mixture on half of each tortilla. Fold the tortilla in half.
  6. Heat the tortilla in a lightly greased pan, flipping once. Your quesadillas are done when they are a lovely shade of golden brown on both sides and the cheese is melted.
