Serves 4

  • 8 gluten-free tortillas
  • 1x 400g can no-added-salt red kidney beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1 cup (180g) no-added-salt corn kernels, drained
  • 1 zucchini, trimmed, finely diced
  • 1 cup (120g) reduced-fat cheddar, grated
  • 4 tablespoons reduced-fat plain yoghurt
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 60g mixed salad leaves
  • lime wedges, to serve
  1. Sprinkle one tortilla with a quarter each of beans, corn, zucchini and cheese. Season with freshly ground black pepper, then lay another tortilla on top. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.
  2. Lightly spray a large frying pan with olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add one quesadilla to pan and cook for 2 minutes or until golden. Carefully turn out onto a plate, then slide back into pan to cook on other side for 2 minutes or until golden. Transfer to plate and cover to keep warm. Respray pan and repeat with remaining quesadillas.
  3. Cut quesadillas into quarters and arrange on serving plates. Top with yoghurt, diced tomato and salad leaves, then serve with lime wedges

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
