Healthy Breakfast Quesadilla
Guys, this easy healthy breakfast quesadilla is deeelicious! It’s so simple but so good! Normally I tend to make oatmeal or drink a protein green smoothie for breakfast. But this is a great change! It’s easy to make and I just love the crispy outside loaded with veggies, eggs, and avocado. You’re getting protein from the eggs, and healthy fats from the avocado. Dip it in your favorite salsa for a wonderfully satisfying breakfast or brunch.
Healthy Breakfast Quesadilla Ingredients
This recipe comes together with a few main ingredients:
- Tortilla Wrap – There’s a wide variety of options available these days for tortilla wraps. To make these quesadillas gluten-free and low carb, you can use corn wraps, brown rice wraps, cauliflower wraps, or egg wraps. You can also use regular flour tortilla wraps.
- Eggs – You’ll need two medium or large eggs for this recipe.
- Zucchini – You’ll need half of a zucchini chopped into bite-size pieces. No need to remove the skin.
- Spinach – You’ll need one cup of spinach. It can be baby spinach or regular spinach.
- Cheddar Cheese – I used a cheddar cheese slice. You can use any kind of cheese you’d like here, including plant-based cheese. Shredded cheese will also work.
- Avocado – I used 1/2 of mashed avocado. This is optional.
- Salsa – The salsa is the perfect sauce addition! You can use mild, medium or hot sauce.
