Perfect for any breakfast, lunch or brunch, these quesadillas are quick to make and made healthier using wholewheat tortilla, avocado & organic ham & cheese. Of course there is olive oil involved, because olive oil is good for almost anything!

Persciutto is quite salty in itself, so you need a mild, regular cheese to pair with it. I am using cheese with mustard seeds, since I found it on offer at Ekoplaza (as “Christmas cheese”) and it tastes great combined with persciutto!

Finally a foodie breakfast other than oatmeal. Also, exquisite cure for hangovers.

Original recipe by Nigella Lawson (Good Food Fast on Amazon) – made healthier by me and enjoyed by many already!

Instructions
  1. Place a grill pan on high fire and heat it up.
  2. Spread ham, cheese, avocado & fresh parsley evenly over each tortilla. Fold and glaze with olive oil on both sides.
  3. Heat for 2 minutes on both sides - press down in the pan using a spatula (or a plate) to make the quesadilla stick together.
Recipe Notes

Organic prosciutto can be quite pricey. Tip: buy best quality meat when possible, and compensate for the price by eating less meat in general (which will also be good for your health).

Where to buy ingredients?

Organic prosciutto: better supermarkets or delis, at Ekoplaza or other organic stores, or at an organic butcher.

Organic cheese: better supermarkets or delis, at Ekoplaza or other organic stores, straight from the farmers.

Wholegrain tortillas: most supermarkets (I buy mine at Hoogvliet), or make your own.
