Broccoli Spinach Quesadilla

A classic for a reason, am I right?! Quick, easy, and so freakin’ delicious, this quesadilla even sneaks in a few greens for you and your babes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large flour tortilla
  •  ½ tsp olive oil or butter
  • 1 Little Spoon Broccoli Spinach
  • Grated cheese of your choice (cheddar, mozz, monterey jack, Mexican blend, whatever you’re feeling!)
  • Garnish of your choice (We love sliced avocado and greek yogurt.)

Directions: 

  1. Add ½ tsp of oil or butter to pan and heat over medium-high heat. Add flour tortilla to pan.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of Little Spoon Broccoli Spinach and spread evenly over the tortilla.
  3. Sprinkle with your choice of grated cheese.
  4. Lower heat and fold tortilla in half.
  5. Use a spatula to flip the tortilla and cook until cheese is melted.
  6. Cut into slices, garnish, and enjoy!

Supercharged Guacamole

Whether you’re dipping into this fresh guac with chips, carrots, or even your homemade quesadilla, this recipe is a must-add to any Memorial Day celebration. You can thank us later.

Ingredients:

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small avocado (make sure it’s ripe!)
  • ½ cup parsley, picked (that’s cooking talk for just the leaves.)
  • ½ jalapeno, thinly sliced (you can leave this out if your mini will be enjoying the guac.)
  • ½ container Little Spoon Broccoli Spinach
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Sea salt to taste

Directions:

  1. Pulse all ingredients except lime juice, sea salt, and olive oil in a food processor until incorporated but not smooth. You want to see pieces of avocado and parsley, it shouldn’t be a blended purée.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and add olive oil, lime juice, and sea salt. The quantities are approximate, so you’re encouraged to taste as your go along and season to your liking!
  3. Serve with chips and salsa or loosen it up with more olive oil and use it as a salad dressing!
