Vegetarian Quesadilla, Spinach & Beemster Cheese

Looking for a healthier lunch option? Try these grilled seaweed wraps with melted Beemster cheese & spinach! I love to serve the quesadilla with a fresh tomato salsa. However, you can also serve the wrap with sweet chili sauce!

This dish is made with the seaweed wraps of SeaMoreFood, a Dutch business which makes delicious food items of seaweed. Just as delicious as regular wraps but more sustainable and nutritious. The wraps are made with wakame en himanthalia seaweed. Due to these superfoods in the wraps, these wraps contain more fiber, magnesium, manganese and protein than regular wraps. To me, that’s a great food switch!
