Cauliflower Cheese Quesadilla with Salsa

In collaboration with Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef Roger Mooking, we present to you the Armstrong Cauliflower Cheese Quesadilla with Salsa! Our all-time favourite food pairing (cheese and cauliflower!) star in this oven-baked vegetarian dish. Armstrong Pizza Mozzarella and Tex Mex Shredded Cheeses add an undeniable punch of flavour, especially when combined with homemade salsa. It’s the Mexican-inspired quesadilla recipe you need in your life.


For the tortillas

  • 2 cups grated cauliflower
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups Armstrong Tex Mex Shredded Cheese
  • ¾ cup Armstrong Pizza Mozzarella Shredded Cheese

For the salsa

  • 3 cups finely diced Campari tomatoes
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup finely chopped cilantro, packed
  • ¼ cup finely chopped parsley, packed
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


For the tortillas

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Grate cauliflower in a food processor or by hand with a grater. Place grated cauliflower in a clean tea towel or layered paper towel and squeeze out excess water.
  3. For the tortillas, mix together grated and drained cauliflower, eggs and 2 cups Armstrong Tex Mex Shredded Cheese. Divide mixture into six 6-inch tortillas (about 1/2 cup each and 2 per tray) and place on prepared baking sheet (you may need to do this in batches). Bake for 15 minutes. Let tortillas cool 5 minutes. Flip tortillas and continue baking for 15 more minutes. Let cool 5 minutes.
  4. Place 1/4 cup Armstrong Pizza Mozzarella Shredded Cheese each on top of 3 tortillas. Top with other tortillas. Place back in oven for 5 minutes, just until cheese has melted. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before slicing.

For the salsa

  1. For the salsa, combine chopped tomatoes, sliced green onion, garlic, cilantro, parsley, lime juice, extra-virgin olive oil, kosher salt and pepper. Serve with quesadillas.
