Smoky Toasty Vegan Quesadilla For One

What if I told you the main ingredient in this No’Quesa’dilla is, gulp, Brussel Sprouts. Would you scarper to the nearest non vegan blog faster than your little fingers can click? Hopefully it wont come to that and if I have managed to retain your attention until now then let me take this chance to say….Brussel Sprouts can taste good. Don’t believe me? One bite of these smoky toasty morsels and you’ll be eating your words. And your sprouts.

What you’ll need…

1 flour tortilla

1 shallot

5 brussels sprouts

2 garlic cloves

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1 tbsp freshly chopped flat leaf parsley

1 tsp dijon mustard

1 tbsp hummus

1 tbsp olive oil

sea salt

What you’ll do…

Heat the oil in a pan. Slice the shallot and add to pan. Salt and soften for a few minutes. 

Finely slice the sprouts, add to pan and cook for several minutes before adding salt and the sliced garlic cloves.

Cook for a few minutes more before sprinkling over the smoked paprika. Mix thoroughly and allow the flavours to infuse before stirring through the parsley and transferring to a bowl.

Heat the tortilla in a pan for a few minutes before spreading the dijon all over, the hummus over half and then topping with the Brussel Sprout mix. 

Fold and cook in the already heated pan until toasty on one side before turning over. Once the other side is toasted, cut into three triangles and serve – particularly nice with a warming bowl of soup!
