מהפך טבעוני קיצוני: מהיר Edition Quesadillas

בהתחשב בכך שהחיים שלי הוא כרגע כמו הכלאה בין סרט לכל החיים וחוק & פרק להזמין, אני לא הייתי מסוגל לעסוק באחת מהפעילויות האהובות עליי: בישול. חוץ מזה לא מרגיש מספיק טוב רוב הזמן, אין לי ספרי הבישול שלי, הכלים וגאדג'טים, my pots and pans or my pantry staples. But I can’t eat out all the time so it’s a matter of making do with what I do have.

Whenever we travel, I take my deep 5 quart skillet and my own frying pan. In a bag, I have my own tongs, knives, a small whisk and a hand grater. I carry a bunch of bottles of spices and some essential groceries so that no matter what, there is always a way to make a yummy Vegan meal.

Last weekend I got to pick up some fresh vegetables – פטריות, זוקיני, yellow squash and spinach – to supplement the frozen vegetables I always have on hand. Daiya is always in the freezer too. Seemed I had all the makings of something delicious and after passing a Mexican restaurant on the street, I knew what I wanted.

A trip to the health store yielded two healthy finds: Joseph’s Flax, Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Flour Lavash Bread (who says quesadillas have to be round?) and Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Tortillas.

Now I had everything I needed to make a really fast delicious dinner: Quesadillas המהיר.

מרכיבים:

Canola oil spray
10 עוז. package white mushrooms, פרוס
1 בצל צהוב בינוני, פרוס
4 שיני שום, טחון
1 פלפל, כל צבע, פרוס (I used the frozen multi-colored ones from Trader Joe’s)
1 זוקיני, sliced into matchstick pieces
1 קישואים צהובים, sliced into matchstick pieces
מלח ופלפל שחור לפי הטעם
1 כפית. כמון
1 כפית. פפריקה
1 כפית. אבקת צ'ילי
1 כפית. כוסברה
½ cup Daiya vegan cheese (I used a mix of mozzarella and cheddar flavors)
5 עוז. תרד טרי תינוק
4 tortillas or wraps

כיוונים:

מחממים תנור ל 350 מעלות. מחממים מחבת עמוקה ולרסס עם שמן קנולה (I use spray to keep it low-fat). Add onions, mushrooms and garlic to the skillet and cook for about 5 דקות עד להשחמה. Add bell peppers, zucchini and squash to the pan and mix well. Add spices and stir through. Let the mixture cook for about 10 minutes until the vegetables are softened and cooked through but retain some crunch.

בינתיים, heat a frying pan and spray with canola oil. Add a tortilla or wrap to the pan. Put a layer of baby spinach leaves and some Vegan cheese on the tortilla. Cover with a generous amount of the vegetable mixture. Add more cheese and spinach and top with another tortilla. Let cook a couple of minutes (not too long; you just want to brown the tortilla).

Flipping this thing is the challenge. Here’s what I do: take a round plate and put it face-down on the quesadilla in the pan. Carefully pick up the frying pan with one hand, hold the plate with the palm of your other hand and turn the pan over. Now the quesadilla is on the plate. עם מרית, gently slide the quesadilla back into the pan so the other side can cook. After just a minute or two, slide the quesadilla back onto the plate and move it to the oven where it will continue to cook and get extra gooey, melty and crispy. Then go on to make another quesadilla in the pan.

פתק: you can avoid the whole frying pan thing and just put the assembled quesadillas in the oven to cook, flipping them half-way through but the oven I have at the moment only has one rack and can just barely fit the one plate at a time.

Take the plates out of the oven (be careful, it’s REALLY hot!) and cut the quesadillas into quarters. Serve with Vegan sour cream, ממרח אבוקדו, salsa or whatever your favorite condiments are.

I make these quesadillas so thick with vegetables, I end up having to eat them with a fork and knife because they are too big and messy to pick up. They are so filling (but filling because of healthy veggies and whole-grain bread) that you won’t even need a side dish.

תהנה!
