Ingredients

  • 4 Grimm’s Organic Original Flour Tortillas
  • 5 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup pickled banana peppers, chopped
  • 1 cup marble cheese, grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
    optional garnishes: cilantro, lime, avocado

Preparation

  1. Preheat a sauté pan over medium heat with 3 tbsp olive oil. Add minced garlic and cumin and sauté until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add rinsed chickpeas and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add spinach and banana peppers and cook for about 2 minutes, or until the spinach is wilted.
  3. Remove the filling from the pan and set aside. Wipe the pan clean and heat 1 tbsp oil over medium high heat. Meanwhile, fill each quesadilla with 1/2 cup of filling and 1/4 cup grated cheese. Fold in half and place two at a time in the preheated sauté pan, grilling each side for about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Repeat the same steps for the last two quesadillas.
  4. Top with your favourite herb and a squeeze of lime juice & enjoy a hot lunch!
