Tuna and Vegetable Quesidella

 My boys love Quesadillas and its one of  my favorite go to recipes when ever I have  left over flat bread. This is one of my newest versions using  ingredients that are usually lying around my kitchen. Once I purchased ready  to eat tortillas which was available at a shop near my home but sadly they never brought in a new batch once they were over.

They made the  perfect  go to product whenever I wanted to make a quick snack for the boys especially to take to school. So they make good lunch box meals as well.

Recipe : Tuna and Vegetable Quesadilla

Makes 2  using 10" tortillas ( or local flat bread roshi)

1/2 can tuna, drained and flaked
3-4 broccoli blanched or thawed  if frozen, chopped
1/3 grated carrot
2 spring onion finely sliced
Two big handful of grated chedder cheese.
4 tortillas or roshi or even chappati, cooked ones.
salt and ground black pepper

First make your mixture. In a mixing bowl mix in your flaked tuna, the vegetables, spring onion and if you like a little bit of finely chopped chilli, and the cheese. Season with a tiny bit salt and pepper.

Heat up a large frying pan or those roshi preparing pans over a medium  heat. Place a tortilla/roshi in it. Spread the filling, not too much a nice thin layer. You can do this on your chopping board first and then transfer to the pan.

Then place the next flat bread on top. Press a little with a spatula. Cook   for about 1 minute or two. Then flip carefully on the other side to cook the other side , of course.

Repeat with the remaining flat bread.

Cool slightly and cut into triangles.

This is a great recipe to do with kids and also to use up leftovers.


  1. This is my kind of lunch, Nammi. I too love to use ready made tortilla wraps.

  2. Can look at my blog to see prices, and nutritional facts of tuna at different grocery stores.
