Cilantro Hummus for Pita-Quesadillas

I love hummus. I also love cilantro. Combine these two flavors and you find yourself in heaven with these amazing vegetarian pita-quesadillas!










HUMMUS
  • ½ cup cilantro leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 ½ cups cooked chickpeas (or 1 15-oz. can, rinsed and drained)
  • 2 Tbs. lime juice
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 4 7-inch whole-wheat pitas, split crosswise
  • 4 jarred roasted red bell peppers, drained and sliced into strips
  • 1 ½ cups baby spinach leaves
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. To make Hummus: Process cilantro and garlic in food processor until chopped. Add chickpeas, lime juice, oil, and 1/4 cup water; purée 3 minutes, or until creamy.
2. To make Quesadillas: Place 4 pita halves on baking sheet. Spread each with 1/2 cup Hummus. Top with peppers, spinach, and remaining pita halves. Bake 10 minutes, or until crisp. Cut into triangles, and serve.
