These Sun-Dried Tomato Quesadillas are packed with white beans and broccoli.  They have so much flavor and they’re easy to make!


  • 1 heaping cup broccoli florets
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained and rinsed if using the ones pack in oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup white beans, great northern or cannelloni
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, or more if desired
  • 4 large tortillas
  • Olive oil or butter for frying


  1. Add the broccoli to a steamer basket over boiling water and steam until just fork tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and garlic to a food processor and pulse a few times until both ingredients are chopped up and paste like.  Next, add in the broccoli, white beans, salt and pepper and pulse just 2-3 times to break them up a little bit.
  3. Heat a large pan over low-medium heat and add olive oil or butter.  Spread 1/4 of the mixture onto one side of a large tortilla.  Top with about 1/4 cup (or more) of cheese and fold over.  Place the quesadilla, cheese side down, in the pan and cook until golden brown on both sides and cheese is melted, about 3 minutes per side.  Repeat until you have four quesadillas.  Cut in half and enjoy.
