I had very few Ingredients in my pantry today and I kept thinking what we should eat for lunch. Then I saw the can of corn, a box of baby spinach and I instantly knew what I had to do. Served with a side of @tostitos

To make these easy peasy Quesadillas you’ll need:

2 Whole wheat tortillas

2 tsp each of Salt, pepper
and 1 tsp each of chilly flakes, Italian seasoning

2 cloves Minced Garlic
1/2th cup Milk
3 tbsp flour


Let’s start by prepping the filling. In a pan on medium heat, add 2 tbsp butter and one tbsp olive oil

Add minced garlic and saute till tender. Now add the spinach, 1 tsp each of salt, pepper, chilly flakes and Italian seasoning. Mix well and cook till the spinach softens, takes about 2-3 mins. Now add the corn, mix well

Remove from the pan and set aside in a bowl

For the sauce, in the same pan, add 2 tbsp butter and one tbsp olive oil on medium heat. Once hot, add the flour and roast for about a minute

Now add milk, 1 tsp each of salt and pepper. Lower the heat and stir continuously for another 2 mins till it has a nice saucy consistency

Remove from the heat and pour into the bowl of sautéed spinach and corn. Mix well with the help of a spoon. Ideally looks like this
