Dinner for Two: Spinach & Sweet Potato Quesadillas.

What do you do when you have two hungry people and nothing in the fridge? Improvise darling. It is embarrassing to admit, but last night the only ingredients I could put together were spinach and sweet potatoes. When I did some research on Pinterest I found quite a few pins on spinach and sweet potato quesadillas so this recipe was born. Luckily we had some tortillas and a little bit of cheese left in the fridge. The bf only had to pick up salsa and the recipe was so simple I actually did the cooking [it is Valentine’s Day after all!]

sweet potato spinach quesadillas - haute + healthy

Tortillas [we used 8 small tortillas] – this made 4 small quesadillas
2 sweet potatos, chopped into pieces and baked
1 cup chopped spinach
3/4 cup of cheese [we used low-fat feta]
olive oil for cooking
fresh salsa for dipping
*this would have been amazing with some Chobani plain greek yogurt as sour cream*

Chop your sweet potatoes into pieces, I cut mine like sweet potato fries. Bake them at 425 for about 30 minutes.
Chop up your spinach.
Once the sweet potatoes are baked, assemble your quesadilla: Place an even layer of sweet potato, spinach and cheese over one tortilla, followed by another tortilla on top. [You could also just put the ingredients in a warm tortilla to create a taco instead of a quesadilla].
Throw a teaspoon or so of olive oil on a skillet over medium high heat. Cook the quesadilla for about 3 minutes per side, until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are lightly browned.

  1. I love sweet potato and cheese quesadillas! I also will saute up an onion and add that too (I love onions. Is that weird?). So yummy. I will definitely add some spinach next time I make them.
