Fusion Quesadillas

Evening snack is very important for kids, that too after a long day in school. My kids are not expectional too, they just love their evening snacks much more than their dinner. Obviously i'll plan to make many different snacks at home instead of buying them from stores. Also French stores have varieties of biscuits,chips and sodas than healthy snacks. Its better to make snacks at home here than buying, as am a health nut i like to feed my kids with healthy stuffs in their snacks. So i'll try to add more veggies or else greens in their snacks, today's recipe is also one among those healthy snacks i have prepared during last week for my kid's snack box.

Am running my second week of blogging marathon with Kid's delight -after school snacks as theme,today's fusion quesadillas with loads of veggies, spinach and mozzarella cheese makes a filling and healthy after school snacks. You may wonder why i named this dish as Fusion Quesadillas, i have a reason for it. The stuffing i went for making this quesadillas is purely an Indian spiced masala with mixed vegetables and spinach, while the cheese i used is the famous mozzarella. When an Indian masala with mozzarella cheese stuffed in between two whole wheat tortillas makes obviously Fusion Quesadillas na.Sending to Viji's SYS-W series - Hidden Ingredients..Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#38 .
