Lately I’ve been enjoying fuss-free easy dinners – super simple, super fast, and flavorful. It seemed like a tall order, but after getting into the kitchen for a bit and playing with a bit of matching, I found a new favorite that our family was completely obsessed with: quesadillas vegetable masala.
When I was growing up, my mother did it all quesadillas for after school food. She still has the same blue color The tupperware container She then used to combine fills so she could smash them as soon as we were towing into the driveway. It’s usually a blend of chopped tomatoes, carrots, shredded spinach and broccoli (maybe she’s trying to include some greens in our diet?), And a little grated cheese. She would wrap it all up between two corncakes, bake it well and cut it up for my brother and me.
Obviously my brother and I’s palates have evolved a bit since then, and we are more inclined to aroma and herbs than in our quesadillas today, but there’s still something nostalgic about a Crispy tortilla cake dipped in sour cream.
So lately my brother and I got a little cunning and started to rethink our quesadilla memories with a new combination. Bring the familiar taste of my mother’s sabzi and combining them with some melty and guac cheese turned into the most delicious and miraculous dish we were both obsessed with.
To keep things simple, we’ve chosen our small veggies. Just some sliced bell peppers, bell peppers, onions and black beans. What combined it all was the spiced tomato masala that was always in my mother’s kitchen: some cumin, garam masala, chili powder and turmeric. We were convinced at first that this dish would taste too much like sabzi just stuffed into a tortilla, but with the addition of a beautiful creamy blend of queso Freshca and a Mexican cheese blend, both of us are all amazed at its completely new experience. Serve with guacamole and sour cream and those are my two favorites in one.
The best part is that you can make vegetables first and just assemble and cook when you’re ready. Meals are perfect for Monday nights when even thinking about what to do for dinner is too much work. The combinations are endless, and it’s the perfect, easy, full-flavor meal.
