Recently I spoke with Chef Greg Gable who is Executive Chef of Chavrie. Gable first acquired critical acclaim over his 13 years at Le Bec Fin, one of Philadelphia`s finest dining institutions. He has also received several accolades such as the Philadelphia Inquirer`s 3 Bells Award of Excellence and Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. Gable is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, N.Y.
Chef Gable has created an excellent quesadilla recipe for us called Chavrie Roasted Red Pepper Quesadillas. It is a healthy and gourmet alternative to most recipes. Goat Cheese contains 30% less fat and cholesterol than cow`s milk cheeses, it`s gluten-free, completely all-natural and is mostly tolerated by those who are cannot digest cow`s milk. Chavrie Roasted Red Pepper Quesadillas Ingredients 2 ea. Tortilla shells 1-6 oz. jar Roasted red peppers 1 pkg. Chavrie Fresh Goat Cheese 3-4 Tbsp. Butter or vegetable oil
Lay out 6 tortillas on a table Divide the Chavrie up evenly among the tortillas and spread out to the edges Drain the peppers and slice in 1/4 inch strips Evenly distribute the roasted red peppers strips among the cheese on the tortillas Top each with the remaining tortillas Sauté the quesadillas in the butter or oil in a non stick pan until each side is golden brown and slightly crispy Place on a towel to drain Cut each quesadilla into six wedges and serve with your favorite salsa
Please visit Chavrie`s website for all your goat cheese needs!
