Yam and Chipotle Quesadilla

image

This spicy quesadilla is exploding with flavour. It is a super-filling, healthy and satisfying dinner that everyone enjoyed. The recipe is from the Meet the Coup Cooks cookbook which is from my favourite vegetarian restaurant The Coup in Calgary, Alberta. I made a few minor changes to avoid using oil, and I baked them instead of pan-frying. They turned out so well! I can’t wait to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

2 medium yams, cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped
3 chipotle peppers in a can
1 cup black beans
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 bunch spinach, washed
1 red or yellow pepper, diced
1/4 bunch green onions, chopped
1 cup cheddar cheese
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
4 sprouted tortilla wraps
1 avocado thinly sliced (optional for serving)
1 cup mango salsa (optional for serving)
1 cup sour cream (optional for serving)

In a large bowl mix yams, onion, salt and pepper and combine

Place on a lined baking tray and roast at 360F for 40 minutes or until yams are super soft.

In a food processor place roasted yams and onions, chipotle peppers, garlic cloves and blend until smooth.

On one side of each wrap place the yam mixture, black beans, spinach, peppers, green onion, cheese and cilantro.

Fold in half and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 400F for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and wraps are crisp.

Top with your choice of sliced avocado, salsa, and sour cream
