New Year Supper Dish
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my readers! I hope that 2020 will be a happy, healthy and fulfilling year for you all. My first recipe of the New Year is for Spicy Black Bean & Avocado Quesadillas……there’s something about beans (and peas) that is very traditional at New Year, with Black Eyed Peas being served in the South of the USA, beans being added to Galette des Rois in France, and our own Twelfth Night Cake here in the UK, always has a dried bean and a pea hidden inside the cake too. And, whoever found the bean became King of the Revels for the night. So, although today’s recipe is not a cake, it does have beans in it, it’s vegetarian (and vegan when the cheese is omitted) and is the perfect way to perk up a family supper in the New Year.
I made these Spicy Black Bean & Avocado Quesadillas using Paul Hollywood’s Italian Stonebaked Flatbreads, as part of some work I did with them before Christmas, resulting in a wonderfully light and tasty meal, plus the Italian Stonebaked Flatbreads add a great texture and taste to these quesadillas. Available in Sainsbury’s and Tesco, Paul Hollywood’s Stonebaked Italian Flatbreads are produced in Italy and capture a really authentic Italian taste that is perfect for wraps, dips and homemade pizzas, and quesadillas too of course. Paul’s Italian flatbreads are hand stretched the traditional way and are made with the finest extra virgin olive oil and durum wheat. Baked in a hot volcanic stone oven for a truly classic Italian flavour, they are best enjoyed warm. The flatbreads can be dry fried in a hot pan on the hob, microwaved, baked in the oven or even tossed onto the BBQ for a few minutes, all of which can be found on the back of pack.
This simple and easy to assemble vegetarian recipe is shared below (on a printable recipe card) and you will probably have most of the ingredients in your store cupboard already, such as tinned beans, onions, cheese, flatbbreads and taco seasoning. You can of course use any flatbbreads, and I do have a lovely recipe on Lavender & Lovage for homemade taco seasoning, here: Homemade Taco Seasoning as well as a homemade salsa recipe here: Homemade Spicy Salsa. The recipe serves 8 for brunch or lunch (or a light supper) with salad. Or serves 16 for a large gathering or party. I hope you enjoy these quesadillas as much as we all did, Karen
