Recipe of the Week: Spinach Pie Quesdilla

Source: In the Small Kitchen

I'm back! It's been a while, I know. This is my first post of September and the month is already ending, but the past four weeks have been nothing if not hectic and full of exciting changes. I moved into a new apartment (goodbye Evanston, hello Chicago!), started a new job, and, to top it all off, I have a birthday coming up this weekend. So, forgive my negligence, I promise to be more consistent from now on.

Let's pick up where we left off—with a recipe of the week. Shall we?

This week's selection comes to us from the lovely ladies over at Big Girls Small Kitchen. I have nothing but great things to say about Cara & Phoebe and their recent cookbook, In the Small Kitchen, (as evidenced by my earlier Recipe of the Week post). To date, I haven't tried a single one of their recipes that I haven't liked...a lot, including my most recent attempt, this spinach pie quesadilla. It's essentially a frittata stuffed into a tortilla. The filling consists of egg whites, scallions, onion, garlic, spinach and feta, along with some herbs and spices (also, Greek yogurt, which I omit). The spinach and feta lend a Greek flavor to the dish, while the onions add a nice crispy crunch. Everything is fried up in a tortilla to make a pocketful of deliciousness. It's a tasty and relatively healthy dish and a perfect weeknight dinner for one.
