Black Bean Quesadillas

Serves 1

Black beans are high in fiber, which is good for gut health. They’re also rich in potassium, folate and vitamin B6, important for a healthy cardiovascular system. Adding spinach also packs these quesadillas with lots of micronutrients, including vitamins A, C, E, K, iron, copper and zinc.  


1 pitta / wrap

2 oz black beans, cooked (60g)

1/2 cup of spinach leaves

1/4 avocado

1 medium tomato

1/2 yellow pepper

1/4 red onion

1 clove of garlic, crushed

1 tsp smoked paprika

2 tbsp low-fat Greek yogurt

A handful of fresh cilantro


1.  Chop spinach, red onion, tomato and avocado, and mix together with the black beans, pepper and smoked paprika.

2.  Use the mixture to fill the pitta/wrap

3.  Place the filled pitta/wrap into a pre-heated sandwich press. Grill for 2-5 minutes or until golden. 

4.  Mix yogurt with the crushed garlic to make garlic yogurt dip. 

5.  Serve the quesadilla together with the yogurt dip.
