Ramp + Soy Chorizo Quesadillas


This might be my favorite ramp recipe this year. We've already made it three times and we're having it again for dinner tonight. It comes together really easily, the ramps + soy chorizo complement each other nicely, and it's a filling meal. For the longest time I've been weird about eating faux meat products. I will make an except for soy bacon but I don't love things like the Impossible Burger or soy turkey that can be used for sandwiches. A chain pizza place near us uses soy chorizo on one of their pizzas and now I think it's the greatest thing ever. I've used it in a few taco recipes but I think it really shines here when combined with the ramps. 

After picking up a second order of ramps I still have a few more ramp blogs on deck for this week and next week! 

Recipe from Serious Eats.

-2 ounces soy chorizo crumbles (I used MorningStar brand)
-12 ramps, washed, trimmed, whites finely chopped, greens roughly chopped
-Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
-4 ounces grated jack cheese
-2 (10-inch) flour tortillas
-1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Cook the ramps in a small skillet over medium heat and season the mixture with salt and pepper. After sauteing for a few minutes, add the soy chorizo and stir until heated through. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Divide the grated cheese and the soy chorizo/ramp mixture in two, then layer an ounce of cheese, soy chorizo/ramps, and an ounce of cheese again over half of each tortilla (leaving a small border around the edge). Fold the tortilla halves over. 

Heat the oil in a large skillet and carefully add both folded tortillas to the oil. Cook until golden brown on one side and then carefully flip the quesadillas with a spatula and cook on the second side until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate and allow to rest for 1 minute. Cut into pieces and serve with Greek yogurt or guacamole.
