Sweet Potato and Bean Breakfast Quesadilla are what breakfast dreams are made of, nothing will make you more excited to get out of bed! Corn tortillas stuffed with roasted sweet potatoes, beans, capsicum, red onion and feta cheese, cooked to golden crispy perfection. Topped with guac, tomato salsa and a fried egg. So so delicious, I can actually hear angels singing in the distance.
I wrote a massive rant the other day on my Instagram (tillyeats) about how my priorities have changed since starting my healthy and fitness lifestyle from stuffing as much protein as I could down my throat to stuffing as many veggies as I could. Adding vegetables to your breakfast makes it’s so much easier to get in your 5 a day.
If you’re also looking to up your veggie intake as well then look no further than this Breakfast Quesadilla. There are 5 servings of vegetables just in this dish alone and it tastes THAT GOOD you won’t even realise you’re eating vegetables!
When I was going through my hard drive to edit the Breakfast Quesadilla photos I literally cried, every single one I had on there sucked! I could’ve sworn I had taken better photos, I searched every single folder trying to find them. I still wanted to post a photo to Instagram to get everyone hyped up because even though the photos sucked, the recipe is one of the best I’ve ever made. I spent that whole day feeling down and hating on myself. Even worse, I was so unmotivated to write the recipe up in a blog post that I avoided my own set deadline for two days. This morning I woke up and thought there’s no point on dwelling on what I can’t change, I knew this recipe rocked and I had to share it. When I opened up my hard drive to look through the photos again, I couldn’t stop smiling there was actually photos in there that looked half decent (not exactly the best but still good). Was my hard drive playing tricks on me or was my perspective different? Who knows but w
Even though these photos aren’t as great as I’d like I know the recipe is omg-cant-stop delicious and you should make it ASAP!!
