Loaded Vegetable Quesadilla

Loaded Vegetable Quesadilla recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Warm crispy tortillas, with marinated tomatoes flavoring the sauteed onions and zucchini, all wrapped in melting mozzarella cheese. I was running late with starting dinner; so I decided to throw together some quick quesadillas. It took less than 5 minutes to get the dough started for tortillas. While the dough was resting, I prepped the veggies and then it was just the few minutes to cook them and stuff them. Everyone at the table loved these for dinner. I can hardly wait to make these again.

Loaded Vegetable Quesadilla
Yield: 4 servings

 8 Tortillas (simple homemade recipe here or use store-bought tortillas)
1 small Italian Zucchini, lightly sauteed
1 small yellow onion, sauteed
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded

Preheat a large non-stick skillet to medium-high heat. On a large cutting board, layer a tortilla with approx 1/4 cup of cheese, and then spread the vegetables out across it. Sprinkle an additional 1/4 cup or so of cheese on top. 

Using a large spatula, transfer the quesadilla to the hot pan and let it cook for a couple minutes. When the cheese has begun to melt and the tortillas are browning slightly, turn the quesadilla over very carefully. Continue to cook until all the cheese is melted and the tortilla is crisp around the edges. 

Using the spatula, transfer the quesadilla back to the cutting board, cut into triangles while it is hot and serve warm.



  1. It looks great and is a perfect way with the good summer veggies. Your blog is very good! Way to go!

  2. This is a major score kind of a recipe. I have tons of zucchini begging to made into quesadillas!

  3. Mmmm zucchini is one of my favorite veggies. This sounds so good!

  4. Wow! What on earth have I been missing? I'm just visiting from Down to Earth... I LOVE your site! The dishes are beautiful (at least as important as taste) and your ingredients are fresh and whole and healthy... Mmmm. I'll definitely be trying some of these recipes!

  5. Oh happy I followed you from another site !!!

  6. This sounds different with the marinated tomatoes - oh yum. We are trying to do more meatless meals each week and this is perfect. The kiddos would eat this too, so even better. I have to try your handmade tortillas. I do buy handmade at Trader Joe's but if I could make my own even better!

  7. This is making my mouth water! I'm always looking for great dinner recipes, so I'm adding this one!
