My family loves this recipe!   So much so that they requested me to make it tonight.  I love this recipe as it is so easy to make!  And of course I just use what I have on hand.  I also made my homemade tortilla's, and homemade salsa.  So yummy!!!!

2 cups                chickpeas(soaked and cooked as recommended) Today I am going to use my sprouted chickpeas!
1 cup                  salsa
1/2 cup               cottage cheese I have no cottage cheese in the fridge so I am going to use cheddar and add lot of add ins!

Add ins               onion, peppers, jalapeno peppers, mushrooms, corn, black beans, garlic, spices. what ever you have on hand or like!
1 1/2 cups           salsa
3/4 cup               shredded cheese
6                        tortilla's
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl mash chickpeas, mix with salsa, cheese, and any add ins.
  3. Roll even amounts of the mixture in the tortillas. Arrange in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover with salsa sauce and 3/4 cup shredded cheese.
  4. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven 30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before serving. Best served with fresh guacamole, and a nice garden salad.

Black Bean Quesadilla!

Tonight's Dinner!
This one of our favorite meatless meals!  I have share this yummy recipe before...but it is so good I thought I would share again! 
Prep all ingredients.
  • tomato diced
  • green onion sliced
  • soft cooked black beans(can substitute w/chickpea's, or leftover chicken or beef)
  • frozen corn
  • jalapeno pepper, diced real small, no seeds.(this gives it some kick...just enough that kids will still like it)
  • shredded marble cheddar cheese
Arrange ingredients in separate bowl and let you family members load up there own tortilla's!  When they are done, fold in half, and bake till cheese is melted and tortilla crisp!
So simple! So yummy!  No extra seasoning required!
Eat it with a side of salad and Enjoy!

I hope you have fun with creating your own quesadilla!  

Let me know, what do you like in yours!

Watch My Weight Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday All!

I have had a busy few weeks!  Right now I am really trying to get more "raw" foods in my families diet.  So I have been busy peeling and chopping fresh produce to add to all our meals!

I also have been sprouting lots of beans.  So yummy!

I want to share a great book I found recently from the library!
Hooked On Raw
by Rhio
Hooked on Raw, is a "cook"book full of raw recipes. Also full of info about health-related issues, such as bringing wild foods and organic foods into your diet, soil fertility, food irradiation, genetic engineering of seeds/plants, hybridization of seeds, fasting, rejuvenation and much, much more.  I found it very informative and easy to read!  I love the recipes and will share some of them soon!
