Vegetarian Barbecue Recipe

While the meat eaters are tucking in to their Chorizo and Secreto here is an easy one to try as a barbecue Mexican sandwich.  

Serves 4

8 tortillas 200ml sour cream 120g grated cheese of choice (I always use a monetary jack) Jalapenos

Black Bean Puree

250g cooked black beans ½ bunch of coriander (picked) Juice of 1 lime ½ tsp cayenne ½ tsp cumin

The Salsa

½ finely diced red onion Tbsp lemon juice 3 spring onions 4 plum tomatoes 1 clove garlic ½ bunch coriander (picked) 2 avocadoes

Start with the black bean by putting all the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until smooth.

For the Salsa

First soak the onion in the lemon juice. Chop the spring onions, avocadoes and tomatoes into small cubes and add to the onion. Puree the garlic and roughly chop the coriander and add to the mix, toss together gently not to mash the avocado.

Building the Quesadilla

Place a tortilla on your board and spread the puree over the tortilla leaving around 1.5 to 2cm from the edge. In one half add the sour cream and on-top add the salsa. Sprinkle with cheese and add as many jalapenos as you like then fold over the tortilla.   Repeat the process for the remaining tortillas.   Place on the barbecue or griddle pan at a medium to high heat. The filling should be warm and the tortilla slightly charred.  It will only take 2-3 minutes Slice at an angle and serve with the remaining salsa and picked coriander leaves.

I made these as a kids healthy snack at the weekend and they were a hit. I made them on the stovetop so were missing the char flavor but were still pretty good.
