Bill is a cyclist. On Wednesdays he goes on a training ride straight from work so Kay and I usually fix something for dinner that he doesn't like. Tonight nothing was sounding good though so I started digging through cookbooks. I decided on this recipe in an old cookbook of my mom's called "Lean, Luscious and Meatless". From what I can find, it is probably out of print.
Our 90+ degree weather is back so we decided to have a picnic in the backyard. Here are some very goofy pictures!
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup chopped broccoli
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 flour tortillas (I used fancy whole wheat roasted red pepper ones)
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 medium tomato, sliced
sprinkling of Parmesan cheese
Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions, peppers, and broccoli and cook 5 minutes or until tender.
Place the tortillas on a baking sheet. Spread the vegetables evenly over the top. Sprinkle with oregano and garlic powder.
Arrange tomato slices over the top. Sprinkle with cheese.
Bake 12 minutes in a 400 degree oven.
She used a plain flour tortilla, a thin layer of pizza sauce, and a mixture of mozzarella, cheddar and Parmesan cheese with ground pepper. She then ate some of my broccoli on the side.
Kay: I really liked this recipe because it was quick and easy. I could make this as an afternoon snack.
Mom: The original recipe didn't call for broccoli and had green peppers instead of red. I like my version more! There wouldn't be much to it without the broccoli. After eating it I was thinking that a little pesto would have been good too.
This was a nice quick meal that I'm sure we'll have again.
