Serve with a side of salsa and a garden salad for an easy weeknight dinner.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until slightly tender, about 6-7 minutes. Stir in garlic and heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add in zucchini, salt, coriander and cumin and cook until tender, about 7-8 minutes. Remove from heat and drain any liquid. Place zucchini mixture in a medium bowl.
Wipe skillet clean. Lightly spray flour tortillas with nonstick cooking spray. Place one tortilla in skillet. Top with half of the cheese and half the zucchini mixture. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cilantro. Top with additional flour tortilla.
Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Carefully flip and continue to cook for an additional 4-5 minutes until golden brown and cheese has melted.
Remove quesadilla from the pan and place it on a plate while you continue to make the other quesadilla in the same manner. Let quesadillas cool slightly and cut into wedges. Serve with a fresh salad and salsa.
Notes: These can also be cooked in a panini or sandwich press. Cook for about 5-6 minutes on medium heat until cheese is melted.
The texture is absolutely perfect, creamy and rich. You should start with 1/2 cup of cheese and go from there. If you want it cheesier and richer like me, then you can and should add 1/4 cup more. This is one of those recipes I have pinned to my fridge so that I have it close in those lazy single moments haha.
Have 30 minutes? Then you can definitely make this crazy good recipe using everyday ingredients.
