    1. 1
      In large skillet, heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add the sesame seeds and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add asafetida if using, ginger, cumin and mustard seeds and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
    2. 2
      Stir in cauliflower and bell pepper, splash in liquid aminos, cover and cook until cauliflower is tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, toasted cashews, pepper and salt. Remove from heat.
    3. 3
      Place 1 tortilla down flat on work surface. Spoon one-quarter of the cauliflower mixture onto half of the tortilla, leaving a 1" border. Scatter cauliflower with cheese, then cilantro. Fold in half. Repeat with remaining tortillas and fillings.
    4. 4
      In nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat. Add 1 quesadilla and cook until golden brown, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes per side, turning carefully. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with more oil and remaining quesadillas. Serve hot with salsa if desired.

      Wow, fusion cuisine at its best as far as I'm concerned. BF and I both rated 5 stars at least. I'm putting this into my keepers cookbook. I used soy sauce, asafetida, salsa, whole wheat tortillas and less oil on a non-stick skillet. Truly fantastic. Definitely Indian, Italian and Mexican components here. Not strange at all to me, just good! Thanks Sharon!

      Well, Dh gobbled this up while I just found it strange. Must be my taste buds lately so I'm not rating it. I made no changes.
