Low Fat Black Bean and Sweet Potato Quesadilla for National Vegetarian Week 16th - 22th May 2016 #NVW2016 #jcookingodyssey

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Quesadilla , these great and delicious 'toasties' are so simple to make, also they tick healthy box too.

Let me spill the beans and admit it that I used to mumble up the word 'Quesadilla' and thought that I should not say this word loud in any public place :). After taking crash course on it, with my daughter  and husband I think I have finally got the hang of it..see now I can say it's Kay-sa-dee-ah ! While I was practising few Mexican cuisine words, husband just told me say this word in Hindi and I did it ' Kai se Dia ' :)




I am sure many of you have been there or still struggling in the pronouncing these foreign delicious but tongue twisting words, I think that is perfectly normal as these cuisine are not native to your country and they are so easy to whip up then pronounce correctly .




My family are a fan of Mexican cuisine,  and at least once a month we do treat ourselves with either Nacho, Fajitas, Taco, Enchiladas, Burrito and Quesadilla . When you prepare this dishes with fresh and healthy ingredients and use less amount of half fat cheese, these dishes provides all the nutritious filling meal.



I always play with colourful and fresh ingredients and make variations, this time used Black Beans and Sweet Potato, great combination to work with and there were four happy tummies once we devour with Cumin Mango salsa and Guacamole.



It's a National Vegetarian Week 2016 , a week where you can celebrate everything best about vegetarian lifestyles from the healthy and delicious foods which provides you good good health. If you are looking for a vegetarian food idea, this recipe is perfect for you,

Provecho !!!
