Ingredients

  • 2 sprouted grain tortillas (I like the Ezekiel brand)
  • 4 oz pepper jack cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 avocado, mashed
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with foil. Toss bell peppers and onions in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place under broiler for 10-15 minutes until peppers and onions start to char. Alternatively you can saute them with a little bit of oil in a medium skillet.
  2. Spray skillet or griddle generously with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium heat. Lay tortilla in the skillet. 
  3. Add pepper jack slices on the bottom, then peppers and onions. Spread smashed avocado over the second tortilla then place (avocado side facing down) on the cheese and pepper mixture.
  4. Once the tortilla is golden brown on the first side, flip the quesadilla over to the other side and cook until the second is golden. 
  5. Place on cutting board, then use a pizza cutter or large knife to cut into 6 triangles. Serves 2.
