Method

  1. Peel off the outer layers of the leeks, leaving the tender inner part (save the outsides for stew or soup, or even stock or gravy), then finely chop.
  2. Deseed and finely chop the peppers. Wash and coarsely grate the carrot.
  3. Put all the veg in a bowl, coarsely grate in the cheese, adding more if you have it, then mix it all together. If you’ve got fresh herbs, add some roughly chopped leaves.
  4. To assemble, scatter the veg and cheese mixture across four tortillas, then top with the remaining tortillas.
  5. Put a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat.
  6. One at a time, dry fry the quesadillas for 5 minutes, or until golden and crisp on the outside, and the cheese has melted in the middle, turning halfway.
  7. Meanwhile, jazz up your houmous. Add half a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon or lime juice to the houmous tub, and mix together. You can add some fresh herbs here if you have any.
  8. Let each quesadilla cool for at least a minute before slicing into wedges. Finely slice the chilli, if using. Serve with the jazzed-up houmous and yoghurt for dunking, topped with chilli sauce and the sliced fresh chilli to add a bit of heat, if you like. Great with a fresh, crunchy salad on the side.

Tips

EASY SWAPS:
– I’ve used leeks because I didn’t have spring onions or onions, so use whatever you’ve got.
– Any colour of peppers would be delicious here, and if you don’t have fresh, jarred peppers would also work a treat.
– If you haven’t got any houmous, how about serving with guacamole or a simple tomato salsa? Even better, make your own houmous using tinned chickpeas.
