Blog Quesadillas turns 2

Second year of my little blog has passed and I am continuing to explore our amazing world, through the kitchen. Maybe somewhat slowly, but I am loving and enjoying every step of it. I hope you do too!

For this birthday celebration I decided to make quesadillas with mini asparagus. Normal size asparagus is very German but this mini asparagus not so much. I have seen it only in one food shop so far, imported from Thailand. I was really curious about it so I bought it.

It is as big and as thin as a pencil. And it is so tender that there is no need to peel it or to cut off the ends. I just washed it and cooked it in a pan with some olive oil for about 5 minutes. It can also be eaten fresh. The taste is not that strong as of the normal size asparagus, is rather mild.

I used Italian cheese Fontal (Fontina) because it melts perfectly, although the taste might be somewhat too much intense for a quesadilla. But it did fit nicely with the mini asparagus and the corn tortilla. Happy Birthday Blog Quesadillas!

It's such a great idea to use mini asparagus as a filling! I'll have to try that myself soon.

And seeing them surrounded by the melted Fontina cheese is making me hungry! :)
