Having returned from Singapore with more baggage than I left with (and I'm not talking about the check in kind), largely because I ate my way through as much food as possible in the two weeks...I am now contrite...time to pay up. But then, I did tell you I was getting on a healthy kick...I have been drinking more water than any bladder should legally hold, trying to cut carbs, and stick to high protein...this was fairly light as a meal, and certainly delicious. The double bonus was that is was quick and pretty well a self assembly job. I lined everything up on the bench and let them at it. To make it slimmer, leave the grated cheese out, though it does help stick everything together! 'O'-le!!
- 1 Handful coriander (cilantro)
- 1 Handful oregano
- 120 - 130 g parmesan, cubed
- 120 - 130 g cheddar cheese, cubed
- 140 g chorizo sausage chopped in large pieces
- 1/2 red onion
- 2 - 3 cloves of garlic
- A few spring onions or shallots
- 3 cherry tomatoes per quesadilla, halved
- 1 green capsicum/pepper, diced
- 1 - 2 avocados
- 1 ear of corn, kernels cut off
- 200 g crumbled feta
- 8 - 10 large tortilla wraps (I used 1/2 spinach and 1/2 sundried tomato wraps)
- Olive oil as needed for frying
Place coriander and oregano into Thermomix bowl and chop for* 3-4 seconds* on speed 7. Set aside.
Place cheeses into Thermomix bowl and grate for 10 seconds on speed 7. Set aside.
Place sausage, onion and garlic into Thermomix bowl and chop for 5 seconds on speed 6. Cook for 5 minutes at Varoma temperature on speed soft.
Prepare remaining toppings and set aside.
Lay out each wrap and top with grated cheese, sausage mixture, herbs, and a little of each of the other toppings finishing with the feta and a small amount of the grated cheese. Top with another wrap of choice.
Meanwhile heat a large fry pan on Induction 6 for around 6-7 minutes.The pan should not be smoking, but fully heated.
Drizzle with a little olive oil and place the quesadilla into the pan, cover and cook for around 2-3 minutes, turn over carefully and repeat.
Slice into quarters and serve with fresh lime wedges and additional coriander leaves. You could add a dish of sour cream and fresh sliced red chillies to serve if desired.
