Ramp + Soy Chorizo Quesadillas
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.
