Cooking time

25 minutes

It’s a bit like the chicken and the egg… which came first, the quesadilla or the salsa? Let’s give them equal billing in a meatless Mexican-inspired meal. Our riced cauliflower once again proves its adaptability, when sautéed with garlic and spices, and combined with grated Oaxaca cheese for a heart-melting tortilla filler. Char tomatillos in a pan, shoot ’em with lime and cilantro, and you’ve got a sharp salsa fit for a fiesta.

Sauté the cauliflower rice
In a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Sauté ½ the garlic, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the cauliflower rice and sauté, 8 to 10 min., until softened; season with ¾ of the spices and S&P. Transfer to a medium bowl.

Char the tomatillos
Meanwhile, remove the husks from the tomatillos. Heat a large, dry pan on high. Cook the tomatillos, turning occasionally, 6 to 8 min., until nicely charred. Transfer to a cutting board. Once cool enough, small-dice. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Assemble & cook the quesadillas
To the bowl of cauliflower rice, add the cheese; stir well. Place the tortillas on a dry work surface. Top half of each with the cauliflower mixture. Fold in half and press lightly. In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Cook the quesadillas, 1 to 2 min. per side, until golden brown.
