Description

This quick and easy grilled lentil Mexican Quesadilla recipe is a tasty summer dinner for meatless Monday! Make them for a weeknight meal that everyone will love!

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Green Lentils
  • 1-½ cup Water
  • ½ cups Salsa, Divided
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • 8  Extra-large White Corn Tortillas (6 Inches)
  • Olive Oil Spray
  • ½ cups Cilantro, Roughly Chopped
  • 1-⅓ cup Mexican Blend Cheese
  • Sour Cream, For Serving (optional)
  • Guacamole, For Serving (optional)

Preparation

Rinse lentils and stir water and lentils in a medium pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat to medium-low, cover and cook until tender, about 15–20 minutes. Drain and add to a food processor.

Add 1/4 cup of the salsa and salt into the food processor and pulse until combined and smooth, but leaving some lentils intact for texture.

Preheat grill to medium heat.

Spray one side of each tortilla with olive oil spray and sprinkle with salt. Place 4 tortillas, un-sprayed side up, onto a baking pan. Spread a lightly heaping 1/4 cup of the lentil puree all over the tortilla, covering it completely.

Spread 1 tablespoon of remaining salsa on each of the tortillas. Divide cilantro and cheese between each tortilla. Cover with remaining tortillas, so the sprayed side is facing up towards you.

Gently slide the tortillas on the grill, cover and cook for 3–4 minutes. Gently flip and cook and additional 3–4 minutes. If some of your topping come out after flipping, just gently press them in.

Slice and devour immediately with extra salsa, guacamole and sour cream if you choose!

Note: Make sure you don’t add the salt into the lentils while they are cooking, as this makes lentils tough.
