Fall In Love with Butternut Squash Quesadillas
Sometimes, you just need a really quick meal, like these butternut squash quesadillas. The Italians have pizza, the Mexicans have quesadillas, and I have pan toasties. Why pan toasties? Well, there was a rather long period when I didn’t own a toaster, so I became pretty handy at making a variety of toasted sandwiches using a dry skillet. I’ve used everything from regular white bread and focaccia to khobz and lavash, but the bread that stood out (perhaps purely because it was skillet-sized and shaped) was the humble flour tortilla. Once the butternut squash is roasted and stored in the refrigerator to stay fresh, this cheesy butternut squash recipe will come together in five minutes on a busy weekday morning. Tulum is a wonderful salty Turkish cheese traditionally made in animal hides, but if you can’t find it, feta or a strong sharp cheese will work well, too.Butternut, Sage, and Tulum Pan ToastiesExcerpted from Sirocco: Fabulous Flavours from the East by Sabrina Ghayour.
