Sunshine In Your Mouth


I know I blogged about these last year... but I'm just not sure you guys took me seriously.  A quesadilla with mango??  And Brie??  I know, but it's crazy enough that it just might work.  And it does.  I've already had this little number 3 times in the past week and in the words of Depeche Mode, I just can't get enough.  This recipe comes from one of my favorite food blogs, and definitely my favorite vegetarian food blog, Fresh365.  Once again here's the recipe and once again I admonish you to try it:

Brie Quesadillas with Mango, Walnuts & Scallions


adapted from Rachel Ray . serves 4

8 whole wheat tortillas
1 small wheel Brie cheese (or Camembert), sliced
1/4 c walnuts, chopped
1 mango, peeled and sliced
4 scallions, chopped
pepper
olive oil

Preheat oven to 400F. Arrange four tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet and cook 2 minutes, until they begin to brown. Place 5 or 6 slices Brie on the tortillas and top with walnuts. Cook 3-5 minutes, until cheese begins to melt and walnuts are toasted. Top with mango slices and all, except 2 T, scallions. Sprinkle with pepper. Cover each quesadilla with an additional tortilla. Cook 3 minutes, until top tortilla is golden brown. Let cool and cut into fours. Arrange on serving platter and top with a drizzle of olive oil and 2 T scallions.

Notes:  
--I also like to drizzle a little honey in the middle, gives it just a touch more sweetness which I like.  
--The oven is probably the best way to go, but I've also done this in a non stick pan on the stove with equally as good results--just make sure to flip the quesadilla so it gets warm on both sides.
--I get my brie at Trader Joes--good and inexpensive.

  1. Thanks! Keep the recipes coming. I've made them all. We made the pizza, and the pizza crusts several times this last month. Last night I was thinking about you because we made a crepe bar for dessert and I was thinking about the delicious crepes you and Bracken made with us.

    Whats your favorite crepe batter recipe?
