Sesame Cashew Cauliflower Quesadillas
- 2T. olive oil
- 2T. sesame seeds
- 1 head of cauliflower florets, chopped small and thin
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced thinly
- 1 onion, sliced thinly
- 1/4c. roasted cashews, chopped small
- 2-4T. soy sauce
- 4 tortillas
- 1c. shredded cheese
In a large saucepan, saute the sesame seeds, cauliflower, pepper, and onion in olive oil over medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Add the cashews and soy sauce. Cover and let cook for about 5-7 minutes, until cauliflower is tender. Sprinkle some shredded cheese on half of one side of a tortilla. Spoon some of the cauliflower mixture onto the cheese. Fold the tortilla in half and press in a hot panini maker, George Foreman grill, or heat through on a skillet on the stove. Serves 4.
I’ll be honest – I fully expected this recipe to be gross. It sounded like an odd mixture of things and I was pretty sure that Dave and I would be eating something else. Turns out these were pretty good. They weren’t blow-me-away amazing, but they were different and flavorful!
