Breakfast Quesadilla

No more boring breakfasts! No one should have to start the day with cold toast or soggy cereal! Eating a tasty, nutritious breakfast is not only a great way to start your day but its also a good way to keep you eating better throughout the day.

The breakfast quesadilla isn't a new thing, and in my opinion its really a no-rules meal. You can put whatever you like in it, as long as you have cheese in it then you're on the right track!

You will need (one serve)...
1 12-inch tortilla (Mission brand are my favourite and this time I bought wholegrain)
1/2 zucchini
2 cauliflower florets
5 cherry tomatoes
a handful of low fat cheddar cheese (or full fat if you prefer)
1 shallot, diced
1 clove garlic
sprinkling of paprika
salt and pepper
canola spray for cooking
1/4 avocado
sriracha or preferred chilli sauce for serving

1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees celsius
2. Slice the zucchini, the cauliflower and the shallots. Halve the cherry tomatoes and crush the garlic.
3. Heat a non-stick frypan on high, spray with canola and then sauté the zucchini, cauliflower and shallots until they start to brown. Add the garlic, paprika and seasoning and toss to coat.
4. Spray a non-stick baking tray with canola and place the tortilla down, spoon the sautéed vegetables over half of the tortilla and sprinkle cheese over the top. Fold the other half of the tortilla over to make a semi-circle and then place the tray in the hot oven. Bake for 10 minutes until crisp and golden and cheese is melted. Cut into wedges and serve topped with chopped fresh avocado and a drizzle of chilli sauce.
Ooey Gooey Deliciousness!
