Cauliflower Quesadilla

Cauliflower is an unusual combination to have in a quesadilla, but as long as you cut it into really small pieces it works really well.


  • 1 tsp sunflower oil
  • 2 small onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cauliflower, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground corriander
  • 1 tsp ground paprika
  • 4 wheat tortilla wraps
  • 60g grated cheddar cheese
  • 10 green olives, cut in half


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Fry the onions and cauliflower in the oil in a large frying pan or wok for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the cumin, corriander and paprika and stir over a medium heat until the cauliflower becomes softer.
  4. Lightly grease a large baking tray and lay two of the tortilla down on it.
  5. Divide the olives and then the cauliflower mixture over the two tortilla.
  6. Cover with cheese and then put the other tortilla on top.
  7. Press gently down to make sure it's reasonably flat and then place in the oven.
  8. Bake in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
  9. Cut into quarters and allow to cool slightly before serving.
Serves 1 to 2.
