  • 4 small cherry tomatoes
  • ½ onion
  • ½ bell pepper, red (your fave colour)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 2 tbsp red pesto (check the notes, if you want to make your own)
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella
  • 2 whole grain tortillas (check the notes, if you want to make them homemade)


  • sliced chillies for a kick!


  • Wash the tomatoes and pepper, peel the onions and cut them all into thin slices - the cheese too.
  • Wash the spinach and let it drain in a sieve.
  • Grab a tortilla and spread a layer of pesto over half of it. A tablespoon works well.
  • Add a light layer of cheese on top and a quarter of the tomato, pepper and onion, followed by a few spinach leaves.
  • Top it with another layer of cheese.
  • Then fold the other half of the tortilla on top and place in a large frying pan (nonstick).
  • Heat for 2-3 minutes. Flip and heat for another 2-3 minutes until the cheese has melted - a good indicator is a little running out the side.
  • Pro Tip: place a heavy pot on top of the quesadilla so that it flattens nicely and cooks more evenly - this will also stop the insides escaping! If you don't like the thought of putting a pot directly on your quesadillas then put a plate between the two.
