Grilled Tofu Quesadillas with Spinach, Feta + Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Grilled Tofu Quesadillas with Spinach, Feta + Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Hey look! No wooden butcher block… whaa?! I made these quesadillas at my sister-in-law’s, hence the change of scene. A change of scene is good every once in a while, to get yourself out of the routine, see new things and get a fresh perspective. Typically I cook alone in my kitchen. I’m focused and having fun, but cooking is about sharing and friends and family and talking and laughing. These quesadillas are perfect for all that, totally sharable and not complicated. Simple is good, especially if it involves goat’s milk feta and roasting red peppers. The sauce comes together with just a blitz of your blender – but first the peppers are roasted for maximum flavor and tenderness. After peeling off their blackened, blistered skin, just throw them into your blender along with some garlic, olive oil, pepper flakes, s&p. A simple, albeit addicting sauce made for dipping, spreading, dressing and sharing with friends.

For the Quesadillas   

1 big bag spinach leaves

4 oz goat’s milk feta

1 shallot

your favorite tortillas

 

For the Grilled Tofu

1 package tofu (16 oz)

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons hot sauce

2 teaspoons liquid smoke

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1/4 cup orange juice

 

For the Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

2 red bell peppers

1 garlic clove

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper flakes

fresh pepper

 

Directions 

Slice the tofu as shown. Mix together the ingredients for the marinade and let the tofu soak up this sauce while you work on next steps. On your grill or under your broiler, roast the peppers until tender, dark and blistered, as shown. Let them cool a bit then pull of the burnt skin. Roughly chop and place in blender with the rest of the ingredients. Blend until just combined. Set aside. Sauté the sliced shallot in a bit of olive oil, add the spinach and a bit of salt and pepper. Just quickly cook enough to wilt it a bit. Set aside. Crumble up the feta. In a pan or on the grill, toast the tortillas and stuff them with the filling. Serve with red pepper sauce.
