My last post about Gluten Free Chicken Enchiladas with Avocado Sauce had such great feedback, thank you all very much! Today is another healthy dish I’ve come up with quesadillas. I know one of most important ingredients inside a quesadilla is the cheese. It’s the cheese that pulls everything together. So what did I think of a healthy substitution for it? Hummus! Honestly, I’ve never been a hummus fan until an hour ago. I’ve tried it once before in the past and never touched one again. Until today, that is. I decided to give it another try and also add it to my diet. And oh my goodness, I understand why everyone loves it so much now!
I gathered up some ingredients I had around the kitchen: gluten free tortillas, spinach, purple onions, corn, ghee butter, lean ground turkey, and some herbs. I seasoned the ground turkey with salt, black ground pepper, cayenne pepper, dried oregano, ground cumin, and garlic powder. Everything pinch sized. On a hot oiled skillet, I cooked the meat until brown. Set aside.
In a separate hot oiled pan, I started off with sauteing the onions until slightly brown, added in corn, then spinach with a drizzle soy sauce. Yes, soy sauce!
Once everything was done cooking, I decided to warm up the tortillas on the skillet I used to cook the turkey with. Because being the person I am, not liking to do the dishes, I didn’t want to use add more in the sink. I started with getting a tsp. size of hummus and spreaded onto the tortilla. Added in the spinach, onions, corn, and turkey.
