Halloween. 40 years has passed since the original film. Just to set you straight, this new one ignores all the sequels. Michael Myers and Laurie Strode aren’t related. Michael has been in an asylum ever since the first film, while Laurie has had a daughter…
Witness For the Prosecution
Witness For the Prosecution (1957) I watched this movie many years ago, and for the past few years I couldn’t remember the name. I remembered some of the great courtroom twists and turns, but kept forgetting the movie, I kept mixing it up with another…
Black Panther Review
For years, fans have clamored for a black James Bond, usually Idris Elba. In Black Panther, fans got something much better. Q has nothing on T’Challa’s sister Shuri, and even a diehard Bond fan like myself will admit this film has much more heart than…
One 8-inch whole grain tortilla (or gluten-free tortilla for gluten-free quesadillas)
¼ to ⅓ cup hummus of choice (green goddess hummus is my favorite)
Fillings of your choice (I used a handful of sautéed spinach in olive oil, rinsed oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, and some thinly sliced Kalamata olives)
Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
Optional, for serving: additional hummus, hot sauce, pesto, etc.
Spread hummus generously over your tortilla. Lightly cover one-half of the tortilla with fillings of your choice. Fold the blank half over to create a half-moon shape. Repeat if you’d like to make more than one quesadilla; you can cook up to two at a time in the same skillet.
Warm a medium skillet over medium heat. Place the folded quesadilla(s) in the pan. Let the bottom sides warm up for a minute or two, then carefully flip. Brush the warm sides lightly with olive oil and let them cook in the pan for another minute or two. Carefully flip once again, brush the new top side lightly with olive oil, and cook until the bottom is lightly golden and crisp. Carefully flip and cook until that side is lightly golden and crisp.
Transfer the quesadilla(s) to a cutting board and let them rest for a couple of minutes. Then, use a sharp chef’s knife or pizza cutter to slice each quesadilla into three wedges. Serve immediately. I enjoyed mine as-is, but you might like some additional hummus on the side, or perhaps some hot sauce or a dab of pesto.
