Steak and Spinach Quesadilla

Steak and Spinach Quesadilla with Provolone


The best part about quesadillas is that they tend to be a family favorite, meaning that both kids and parents are happy to see them on the table, and as you Mommies know, that alone is worth it’s weight in gold!


  • 1 tsp. of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 oz. leftover flank steak (or whatever you’ve got on hand)
  • A big handful of spinach
  • 1- 6inch, whole grain tortilla
  • 1 slice part-skim provolone cheese


  1. Heat oil in a 12 inch skillet. Add steak and heat until just heated through. Toss in the spinach and cook until wilted. Remove steak and spinach from the pan. Place one tortilla in the pan and heat through. Flip the tortilla and place half a slice of cheese on one half of the tortilla.
  2. Layer the steak and the spinach over the cheese and then place another half slice of cheese on top. Fold the tortilla onto itself to create a half moon. Place a tea kettle or another heavy pot on top of the tortilla to press it down for about 30 seconds. Flip the quesadilla and do the same thing on the other side.
  3. Remove quesadilla from the pan and allow to cool bait before slicing in half. Enjoy with some plain Greek yogurt and spicy garlic sauce.

Receta: Soja Texturizada y Vegetales

Para mis amigos y familia no es un secreto que amo cocinar. Soy vegetariana (ovo-lacto) y me encanta crear recetas y experimentar.

Hoy he preparado esta receta, acá hay algunas fotos  y ingredientes utilizados para que puedan prepararlo en sus hogares también.



Soy meat with vegetables

4-5 Porciones



2 Tazas de Soja Texturizada

2 Tazas de Brocoli

1/2 Taza de Zanahoria Picada en cuadros

1/2 Taza de cebolla en tiras

1/2 Taza de Chile dulce en tiras

1/4 de Queso Mozzarella (Opcional)

2 Cucharadas de Culantro fresco picado

2 Cucharadas de Azúcar morena

2 Cucharadas de Salsa de Soya

3 Dientes de Ajo picados

2 Cucharadas de Aceite de Oliva

3 Hojas de Albahaca fresca

1/4 de Cucharada de Jugo de Limón

Pimienta en Polvo

Orégano en Polvo







Poner a hervir las verduras que desee agregar hasta que queden al dente (no muy suaves ni muy duras). Usualmente toma entre 30-45 min.

Poner a remojar la Soya Texturizada de 2-4 horas en agua (suficiente para cubrir la soya) con una pizca de sal y la porción de jugo de limón.

Una vez que ya está la Soya lista escurrir  cualquier residuo de agua y poner en un sartén grande el aceite de oliva y el ajo (si desea puede agregar mantequilla también).

Una vez que ya esté bien caliente agregue la soya, deje que se cocine por 5 minutos. Agregue a poco la Salsa de Soya, la albahaca, pimienta y el azúcar. Mezcle bien durante 5 minutos más.

Añada las verduras ya hervidas y picadas (Brocoli y Zanahoria) Y mezcle y deje cocinar a fuego bajo de 5 -10 minutos más.


Mientras añade el Brocoli y la Zanahoria a el sartén con la soya texturizada, tome otro sartén y ponga media cucharada de aceite de oliva y agrega la cebolla, el chile dulce y el culantro. Agregue una pizca de sal, azúcar y pimienta. Luego de 5 minutos está listo. Apague el fuego y ponga el queso Mozarella encima para que se derrita.  Evite revolverlo en el sartén para que no se pegue.

Una ve listo sirva la soya con vegetales y encima agregue la mezca de cebolla y chiledulce.

Y Bon Appétite!
