Veggie Quesadillas with Lo-Dough and Cheese

An easy to make recipe that brings you a taste of Mexico - all for 161 calories a portion. Sometimes it's just too good to be true. This recipe has five different vegetables running through it, with a little spice and a lot of cheese. Specifically, Eatlean's Protein cheese - low fat, but high taste and high protein.

You can add salsa and sour cream (or fat-free yoghurt as a healthier alternative) if you like, but the taste is all there without it. Serve alongside a mixed salad and if you want some healthy fats, go with some avocado.
