I haven’t felt much like cooking lately… or writing. Or even reading other blogs. I just feel kind of blah. Maybe I need a vacation? Anyway, in keeping with my lazy theme, I have a simple, grilled quesadilla for you today. I was craving something gooey and cheesy, and these seemed like the perfect way to use some of the basil and tomatoes that are all growing so well now that it’s no longer a billion degrees outside! (It’s still warm enough, though, that I’d prefer not to use my oven if I don’t absolutely have to!)
As with all grilled quesadillas, fresh tortillas work best! Once they’re a little stale they tend to get a bit too crispy/hard when you grill them.
Grilled Caprese Quesadillas (Makes 2 quesadillas)
- 4 medium tortillas
- Daiya mozzarella cheese
- 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
- 15-20 fresh basil leaves
- Heat your grill to medium.
- Sprinkle some daiya onto two of the tortillas, then layer tomatoes, basil, and some more cheese. Top with other tortilla and place on the grill. Slide it around a bit so it doesn’t stick, then cover and leave on for about 4-5 minutes on each side.
