Still cleaning out the pantry/fridge in some way. A little over two week until my trip to the Philippines. I'm really excited.
Istill had some that lavash bread and havarti cheese. The only thing that came to mind was a nice big quesadilla. *insert big smile here* Mmmm... I rummaged through the pantry and among the cans of tomato sauce was a can of sardines. Boneless and packed in olive oil. A small light bulb moment.
There's got to be something else I can throw in there. I savenge the fridge and find some leftover frozen mixed veggies that I totally almost forgot about. Sometimes I think my freezer becomes no man's land. Or should I say land of lost foods. You end up forgetting what's in there sometimes. So I cook that up. Did a quick defrost in the microwave and stir-fry them up with some onion, oyster sauce and soy sauce. Adding the sardine in chunks. Mix it all up and place onto the lavash bread with nice slices of the havarti cheese. I used ol' Georgie once again to press it all together and melt the delicious cheesy goodness. You can omit the sardines all together, if you'd prefer a veggie quesadilla. Either way it's all good eats.
Makes 1 large or 2 small quesadilla
Stir Fry Quesadilla
1 large lavash bread or large tortilla
a few slices of havarti cheese.
1 c mixed vegetables
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 small sweet onion - chopped
pepper to taste
1 small can sardines in Olive oil (optional)
Heat a little olive oil in a skillet and saute the vegetables and onion until tender. Stir in the oyster sauce and soy sauce, then season with a little pepper -- to taste. Once sauteed, add the optional sardine. Stir it in chunks. (Note you may also use the oil in the sardine to saute the vegetables a onions. Set aside.
Lay the lavash bread on a flat surface. Spread the stir-fry evenly on half and top with slices of cheese. Fold the other half of the lavash bread and press firmly.
If you have a press, heat for 3-5 minutes until the cheese has melted. You may also heat the quesadilla in a dry clean skillet. Heat both sides for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
