1. Sweet Potato Quesadilla
As SORTED says at the start of the video, quesadillas are great because you can use any ingredients in any combination that you want. To get a healthy dose of antioxidants, try this sweet potato version.
- 1 sweet potato
- 1 small red onion
- 4 tortilla wraps
- Handful of cheddar cheese, grated
- Chunk of blue cheese
- Bunch of fresh chives
- Dollop of crème fraîche
- 1 lemon
Directions: Peel and dice the sweet potato into small cubes, approximately 1 centimeter across. Dump into a pan of salted cold water and bring to the boil. Simmer gently for 6-8 minutes until the potato is cooked and soft. Drain the potato. Peel and finely slice the red onion.
Lay a tortilla wrap down flat, scatter with grated cheddar and a few blobs of crumbled blue cheese. Scatter the red onion slices and cooked sweet potato on top then finish with a little more cheddar. Lay another tortilla wrap flat on top. Fry in a pan with a shot of oil for a couple of minutes until golden and crisp then turn over and repeat. Slice the chives as fine as possible and mix with the crème fraîche, lemon juice, and pinch of salt and pepper. Cut the cooked and crisp quesadilla into wedges and serve with the dip.
