GF Veggie Soup + Chicken Avocado Quesadillas

Tomato soup and grilled cheese are so old school. Try this new combo to add some excitement to your favorite comfort food.

GF Veggie Soup

1 large head cauliflower – chopped

1 large onion – chopped

2 cups carrots – shredded/chopped

3 red bell peppers – chopped + roasted

3 lbs tomatoes – roasted

2 cups pesto

2 cups half and half

32oz chicken broth

In a large soup pot, sauté the cauliflower and onions with a small amount of oil. Once sautéed, add the remaining veggies and the chicken broth. Allow to simmer for about 30mins, with an immersion blender, blend the soup into a texture that is palatable to you, I enjoy mine very thin with few chunks. Reduce the heat and add the pesto and half + half and mix well.

Best served with quesadillas for dipping! Freezes well.

 

GF Chicken Avocado Quesadillas

Grilled chicken breast – chopped

Avocado – sliced

Pepper Jack cheese

Cheddar cheese

Green Onions – diced

Rudi’s Fiesta Tortillas are my all time favorite go-to for tortillas. A necessity in any Celiac home. Trust me. Mix all these goodies in together on top of your tortilla and allow the cheese to melt. I suggest dipping into Veggie Soup!
