Here’s another yummy asparagus recipe. I had it the other night, inspired by a recipe on allrecipes.com. I make recipes for two different reasons: either it’s something I really want to make and taste, OR I just need to find some magical combination of stuff I already have and achieve this synergy of delicious nourishment. Honestly, recipes pursued for the latter reason usually fail and are nourishing but infrequently delicious.
This was a stab at the “what can I combine???” approach. I’d have to say it was one of my most successful “desperate attempts” yet. So successful, in fact, I’m eager to make it again–and share with you!!
Asparagus-Goat cheese Quesadilla
Asparagus–saute lightly in olive oil until warm. I also cut my spears into 2-3in long pieces.
Set aside… Heat a tortilla. Spread some goat cheese to cover one half of the tortilla. Nestle in the asparagus. I like a lot, so I made a very tightly-packed single layer of spears. Throw on some freshly-cracked black pepper. Also toss in some fresh cilantro. Again, I like this a lot, so I used a lot–made sure to have at least a leaf in every bite. Fold over the quesadilla and grill in a saucepan until everything gets warm. The goat cheese will start to meld together and envelop the asparagus. The tortilla will begin to harden up. I preferred the tortilla a little more stiff and toasty for a good outer crunch.
Enjoy. It was just that simple! And it was GREAT.
