Vegetable Quesadilla

vegetable quesadilla 2
Quesadilla is a Mexican dish (pronounced key-suh-dee-uh) generally made with corn tortillas filled with vegetables and cheese. I have made these with wheat flour roti that we eat daily.
My kids love to eat vegetable quesadilla and I don’t mind making these for them.

First of all I am using whole wheat flour rotis/ tortillas. Then I do not add a lot of cheese and you can add a variety of vegetables of their choice. What is left to complain? Even my kids know that I might say no to pizza but I will not say no to vegetable Quesadilla. And with the vegetables we have used it tastes a lot like pizza. A healthier alternative to pizza.

Be prepared to make extra roti/wraps for your kids because they might be eating 2 rotis daily but with this recipe they will be definitely asking for more.

      Hi Sampatti. yes you can replace capsicum with your son’s favorite vegetable. If he does not like Capsicum he will not miss it in the dish
