Vegetable and Goat Cheese Quesadilla


Despite all the deliciously melty cheese, quesadillas can still be part of a healthy diet. Here a whole-whole tortilla brings fiber, goat cheese may be easier to digest for people with lactose intolerance, and veggies bring antioxidants.

DirectionsHeat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until translucent (about 5 minutes), seasoning with cumin, salt, and pepper. Remove onions from pan and set aside.
In the same pan over medium heat, lay tortilla flat. Sprinkle cheese evenly on top. Top half the cheese with cooked onions, tomato, and herbs. When cheese begins to melt, fold cheese-only side of tortilla over. Cook for another minute.
