Writer's Workshop: Artichoke Quesadillas

In honor of Mamma Kat's Writer's Workshop I am taking on Prompt #4: "I'm hungry. Share your very favorite recipe!!" I don't know how "favorite" this is since I only made it once, but here you go:

With inspirations from Lester

A few weeks back when my sister-in-law came to visit— my nephew and I decided to improvise and made lunch for everybody. Since my sister-in-law was allergic to dairy I opted to make some quesadillas sans the cheese. Here is what I came up with:

Artichoke Quesadillas:
1 16oz Can or jar of Artichoke hearts
1 Clove Garlic
1 Sprig Rosemary
2T Olive Oil
1 large frying pan
Peanut Oil
1 Package of medium tortilla shells
  1. Add the Artichoke, Rosemary, and Garlic to a food processor.
  2. Mix on low— adding the Olive Oil until it looks like a pesto
    you can store this for later if you choose
  3. On high heat— add enough peanut oil to glaze the pan.
  4. Add two tortilla shells to the pan and cook on one side.
  5. Flip one over and add some of the artichoke mixture.
  6. Take the other and lay it on top of the first
    heated side down.
  7. Flip the sandwiched quesadilla over and cook the other side.
  8. Remove from the heat
    repeat as necessary.
  9. Cut into halves or quarters if you choose.
  10. Enjoy.
