Fat-free skim milk

1 cup(s)

Ground nutmeg

¼ tsp(s)

Table salt

¼ tsp(s)

White pepper

¼ tsp(s)

Non-fat instant dry powdered milk

2 tbsp(s)

Arrowroot powder

1 tbsp(s)

All-purpose flour

2 tbsp(s)

Fat-free skim milk

2 tbsp(s)

Olive oil

2 tsp(s)

Uncooked eggplant

1 medium, peeled and cut into 16 thin slices


1 small, chopped


1 clove(s), large, crushed

Uncooked 95% lean ground beef

12 oz

Canned stewed tomatoes

14½ oz, or diced tomatoes

Red wine

2 fl oz

Fresh parsley

2 tbsp(s), fresh, chopped

Ground nutmeg

¼ tsp(s)

Whole wheat tortilla

8 medium

Feta cheese

8 tsp(s), crumbled


  1. To make sauce, combine 1 cup of skim milk, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, salt and pepper in a small saucepan; bring to a boil and cook about 1 minute.
  2. Meanwhile, combine dry milk, arrowroot, flour and remaining 2 tablespoons of skim milk in a small measuring cup; stir to form a smooth paste.
  3. Add dry milk-paste mixture to boiled milk and stir over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens; cover and set aside.
  4. To make filling, coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Add oil to skillet and heat over medium-high heat until sizzling. Add eggplant slices and cook until lightly browned, flipping once, about 5 minutes; remove eggplant and set aside.
  5. Add onion and garlic to hot skillet; stir-fry for about 5 minutes. Add beef and cook until well-browned, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Drain any excess oil or liquid from skillet and then add tomatoes, wine, parsley and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg; stir-fry about 3 minutes more.
  6. Place tortillas on a large baking sheet (or 2 sheets, if necessary). Place about 2 eggplant slices, 1/4 cup of beef mixture, 2 tablespoons of cream sauce and 1 teaspoon of feta cheese down the centre of each tortilla; fold each tortilla over in half.
  7. Bake quesadillas until golden brown and cheese melts, about 10 minutes. Yields 2 filled tortillas per serving.


Add more eggplant slices if you want a thicker quesadilla. And feel free to swap lean ground ham or turkey for the beef.
