4. Leek Quesadillas.

Ingredients:

  • 4 leeks, light green and white parts only; cut lengthwise, thinly sliced and well rinsed
  • Olive or vegetable oil
  • 8 tortillas
  • 1 1/3 cup chèvre cheese
  • 1 1/3 cup mozzarella, grated
  • Torn fresh cilantro leaves, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Optional Add-Ons:

  • Fresh cilantro leaves, torn
  • Green onion, finely chopped
  • Spinach or arugula, chopped

Instructions:
1. Heat heavy frying pan over medium heat. Add about 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil, or enough to coat the pan. Add in leeks and a pinch of salt and stir frequently over medium-low heat until the leeks are lightly brown and tender, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl.
2. Assemble quesadillas. Cover tortilla with your desired amounts of cheese, leeks and whatever else you are using. Add another tortilla over the toppings.
3. Place quesadilla in a lightly oiled pan over medium heat for about 2-4 minutes, until tortilla is golden brown. Flip quesadilla carefully, add more oil if necessary, and cook for another 2-4 minutes. Serve immediately.

The Tomato Basil soup, Beet and Carrot Veggie burger, and the Pear and Almond Butter sandwich look especially good.
