Here's a dish that is quite different, and takes almost no time at all to put together.  Not to mention that it's pretty cheap to make too, and can make just one serving.  Sound good?  I like this dish because I don't eat this sort of thing a lot.  A scrambled egg on top of a tortilla shell.  Smeared with tangy lemon greek yogurt, and topped with flavour packed capers or sun dried tomatoes.  And a few onions added for additional bulk.  Add a few chopped fresh herbs, and there you have it- something that you have never tasted the likes of before.  Somehow, I know that there are a lot of variaiton that can be made from this dish, I just have to find them...

Serves 1-2

Juice of one small lemon
Large spoonful fat free Greek Yogurt
Salt and pepper
¼ cup finely chopped onion
1 egg, beaten
1 tortilla, room temperature
Grated cheese
Chopped fresh herbs like parsley
1 generous tbsp capers or sun dried tomatoes

Mix together the lemon juice, yogurt, and salt and pepper, and set aside.
Heat a small frying pan over medium high heat, and either sauté the onion with a bit of water or oil for 7 minutes or so, until tender.
Reheat the small frying pan over medium heat- egg heat. Spray generously with nonstick spray or add a dab of oil, and then pour in the egg. Swirl the egg to coat the bottom of the pan, and let sit for 30 seconds. Put the tortilla on top of the still-runny egg so they stick together, and let sit until the egg is cooked, about another minute. Flip the quesadilla over, and top with onion, cheese, and herbs. Let sit for 30 more seconds, and then remove to a plate. Spread the yogurt and capers/sun dried tomatoes on top.
