Spinach and Feta Quesadillas with a twist

I’ve always wondered what a quesadilla is. It sounds like something spicey and colorful. Just how I like my food. A ‘Quesadilla’ is a kind of Mexican, stuffed pancake traditionally made using Tortillas, but this time, we’re making them using pancakes! Spinach and Feta Quesadillas with a twist, is my new favorite Meatless Monday dish!


Spinach and Feta Quesadillas with a twist; Ingredients: (serves 3-4)


1 Packet Sasko Quick Treats Pancake Mix

2 Extra-large Eggs

1 litre Water

40ml Brown Vinegar

50ml Vegetable oil

Vegetable Oil for frying



300g Spinach

120g Feta cheese

120g White cheese (cheddar/mozzarella, grated)

Salt and pepper


To serve:

Any combination of salad, chopped cherry tomatoes, guacamole, sour cream and coriander. YUM!



Make the pancakes as per the instructions on the Sasko Quick Treats Pancake Mix packet.

Either steam or boil the spinach and, once cooked, drain and allow to cool before squeezing all the excess water out of it.

Chop the spinach up and place into a bowl.

Crumble over the feta, add the grated cheese, season with salt and pepper and mix well.

Take six pancakes and spread approximately 3 tablespoons of the spinach mixture over one quarter of each. Fold the empty half of each pancake over to form a half-moon shape and then fold the filled section over again to form a triangle. Press down gently on each to secure.

Place a non-stick frying pan on medium-high heat and drizzle in a little oil.

Once hot, fry the parcels for approximately 3 minutes a side or until both sides are crisp and golden and the cheese from the filling is melting and delicious!

Serve hot!
