1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans or other white beans, undrained
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
4 (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1 (8-ounce) tuna steak (about 3/4 inch thick)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
8 cups gourmet salad greens
2 cups chopped tomato
1/4 cup chopped pitted kalamata olives
How to Make It
To prepare vinaigrette, combine first 6 ingredients; stir with a whisk. Set aside.
To prepare the quesadillas, drain the beans through a sieve over a bowl, reserving 1 tablespoon bean liquid, and discard the remaining liquid. Combine 1/2 cup beans, 1 tablespoon reserved liquid, and oregano in a small bowl, and mash with a fork. Spread bean mixture evenly over 2 tortillas. Sprinkle each tortilla with 1/4 cup cheese; top with remaining tortillas, and set aside.
Sprinkle fish with 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish; cook 2 minutes on each side until fish is medium-rare or desired degree of doneness. Remove fish from pan; coarsely chop fish.
Heat pan coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Cook quesadillas for 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove quesadillas from pan; cut each into 8 wedges. Combine the vinaigrette, remaining beans, greens, tomato, and olives; toss well. Arrange 2 cups salad on each of 4 plates; divide the fish evenly among salads. Top each serving with 4 quesadilla wedges.
My husband and I both really liked this, and it was easy to make and very healthy. I'll make it again as we really like tuna. The only thing I changed was I didn't make the vinagarette they suggested, because I had my own already made. I just added a dash of Woresteshire.
