Fresh strawberries and leeks cooked inside a tortilla with lots of cheese. Might sounds strange, but it’s really fantastic.

Adapted from a Sprouted Kitchen recipe.


1 large leek, greens cut off and washed
4 or 5 ripe strawberries, sliced thin
Drizzle of olive oil
2 large flour tortillas
1/2 Cup low fat mozzarella
1/4 Cup goat cheese
Black pepper


1) Slice strawberries thinly.  Cut green stems off of leeks, slice in half longwise, and wash between layers.  Then chop into half circles.

2) Add a drizzle of oil to a large skillet.  Add leeks and cook over medium heat for a few minutes until they are soft and slightly browned.  Season with salt.

3) Remove from pan.  Add another drizzle of oil and a flour tortilla.  Turn heat up to medium-high.

4) Layer in mozz cheese, leeks, strawberries, and goat cheese.  Season with pepper.  Add a top tortilla.

5) Cook for about 3-4 minutes a side until tortillas are very crispy and cheese melted.

6) When flipping, I like to slide my full quesadilla onto a plate, invert the plate using another plate, then slide it back in the pan.

7) When done, cut into sixths and sprinkle with fresh cilantro.  Serve immediately.
