Roasted Butternut Squash and Spinach Quesadillas

Hearty butternut squash is often roasted and used as a seasonal dish, but a whole one might be too much for a single meal. These deliciously healthy quesadillas are a great way to use the leftovers!

  • Prep Time15 min
  • Cook Time10 min
  • Total Time25 min

Ingredients

  • 1 packet BFree Sweet Potato Wraps
  • ½ medium butternut squash
  • 350g baby spinach
  • Plant-based melty cheese (I used follow your heart Gouda style slices)
  • 1 tbs chilli flakes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbs light oil
  • 3 garlic cloves skin on and bashed

Spring onion and Chive Crème Fraiche

  • 200ml plant-based cream fraiche (I used oatly)
  • 4 spring onions thinly sliced
  • `1 tbs finely chopped chives
  • Pinch of salt
  • A good grind of pepper
  • Squeeze lemon juice

Method

1

Pre heat the oven to 180°C

2

Line a baking tray.

3

I like to use the bulbous end of the squash. Cut in half deseed and slice quite thinly add to the baking tray. Drizzle with 1 bs oil add the garlic cloves and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to combine and place in the pre heated oven until the squash is soft and lightly caramelised.

4

In a bowl combine all the ingredients for the crème fraiche and set aside.

5

In a frying pan or wok cook the spinach with the remaining oil and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Sautee until wilted. Place in a sieve above a bowl and allow to drain. Using the back of a spoon push as much of the excess liquid as you can from the spinach and set aside.

6

Heat a dry frying pan or sandwich toaster.

7

When you are ready to serve take a wrap and add a sprinkle of cheese to one side or 1-2 slices of cheese. Top with some slices of squash, some wilted spinach and a good pinch of chilli flakes. Add some more cheese and fold the wrap in half.

8

Either place on in the sandwich toaster or in the hot frying pan. If using a frying pan turn the quesadilla over after a few minutes or when the bottom side is starting to turn golden and toasty and the cheese is melting.

9

Cut into three and repeat with the remaining wraps.

10

Serve with the crème fraiche dip.
