what to make with quesadillas?

bellenger Dec 3, 2004 01:16 PM

I was going to make some nouveau quesadiilas for dinner tonight with smoked gouda, mushrooms with truffle oil and spinach. I am having someone over for a casual dinner so was wondering what else I could make, besides salad, as a part of a noshing buffet or for a real dinner. I wanted to stay away from more carbs and from meat as we are vegetarian.

    Trader Joe's tomato and Red Bell Pepper soup is wonderful and would go well with quesadillas.

      Guacamole and stuffed mushrooms?

        Some kind of spicy, creamy vegetable soup, like squash with chipotle chilis?

          No recipes, but how about one of the egg-based ideas below:

          Spanish omelet (torta espanola): this is an omelet layered w/ thinly-sliced potatoes and onions; not traditional, but I've had it served w/ a red bell pepper sauce that was really good.

          Frittata w/ olives, sun-dried tomatoes, goat cheese, basil.

            Spicy pickled veggies - like the carrots you see at salsa bars...
