Make your quesadillas a healthy treat by using BroccoLeaf instead of tortillas. They fast and easy to make, lower in calorie than traditional quesadillas, and provide a great vegetable source that even picky eaters will love.
- 1 bunch BroccoLeaf (approximately 12 leaves)
1 jar Bella Sun Luci sun-dried julienne cut tomato
12 oz organic mozzarella shreds
1/4 cup organic liquid egg whites
Cooking spray or coconut oil
- Preheat oven to 375F
- Lightly coat two cooking sheets with spray or oil
- Wash and clean BroccoLeaf; remove stems (can tear but easier to run a sharp knife down each side of the main stem, per leaf) so each BroccoLeaf makes two “tortillas”
- In a bowl, toss cheese and tomatoes together
- Place BroccoLeaf halves on cookie sheet
- Using two tablespoons, take a spoonful of mixture and place in center of the BroccoLeaf half.
- Use your finger and spread thin layer of egg white around one side of BroccoLeaf edge
- Gently fold the leaves in half and place each half, pressing egg white edge to other edge, then set completed triangle onto the baking sheet
- Bake for 5-7 minutes then flip and continue baking for another 5-7 minutes until the greens turn darker but not burnt.
