Kale Quesadillas With Avocado Dip

The perfect answer for the “I don’t feel like cooking tonight” conundrum are these quesadillas, which are stuffed with pinto beans, sharp cheddar and fresh baby kale. No need to cook the kale, it wilts when sandwiched in between the melty cheese. Look for sprouted whole-grain tortillas in the refrigerator section where fresh salsa and tortillas are sold.

Kale is considered a quintessential health food, mainly because of its rich vitamin and polyphenol content. However, cooking kale can actually deplete some of the most valuable nutrients, which are destroyed by heat. In this recipe, you simply wilt the kale instead of steaming or sauteing — minimizing the cooking process for kale and preserving the antioxidants so you get the most bang for your buck.
