Creamy Spinach & Avocado Quesadillas

Creamy Spinach & Avocado Quesadillas

These quesadillas come together within minutes are loaded with iron, healthy fats and flavour! They are great for a speedy lunch and also work really well in lunchboxes. 

They are perfect as finger food for little ones learning to self feed and you can get in those important leafy greens! 

I like to finely chop the spinach and parsley but you could also blend the avocado along with the remaining ingredients if you prefer a smoother consistency. 

I like to serve these with some veg on the side and some jalapeños for adults!
