Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Broccoli Florets, finely chopped
  • 2 Tortillas
  • 1/4 cup Mozzarella Cheese, vegan or regular
  • 1/2 Lemon, zest & juice
  • 1 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
  • Salt, to taste
  • Avocado, sliced (for serving)
  • Lemon Wedges (for serving)

Instructions

  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper or lightly grease with olive oil.
  • Toss together the lemon juice, lemon zest, finely chopped broccoli florets, red pepper flakes, and a dash of salt. Broil (500F - 550F) in the oven for 5-7 minutes, until tender and crisp.
  • In a frying pan over medium high heat, warm up the olive oil for 1 minute. Add in the first tortilla to cook for 1-2 minutes (until golden brown spots) then flip the tortilla. Evenly spread the shredded mozzarella cheese on the tortilla, then the roasted broccoli. Cover with the second tortilla.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes (until golden brown on that side), then carefully flip the quesadilla to cook an additional 2-3 minutes. Serve warm with lemon wedges and slices of avocado. Enjoy!
