Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl, gently stir together the tomatoes, scallion, mint, salt, a squeeze from each lemon wedge, and 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Set aside.
  2. Preheat a grill-pan (or outdoor grill) over medium-high. Lightly brush one side of each tortilla with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Flip over each tortilla, top with the hummus, sprinkle with the sumac, and gently fold. Pan-grill quesadillas until grill marks form, about 3 minutes on the first side, gently flip over, and pan-grill about 2 minutes.
  3. Transfer quesadillas to luncheon plates. Strain excess liquid from the salsa-like mixture, then arrange mixture on the quesadillas. Enjoy with a fork and knife. And plop the peels from the 2 lemon wedges into your beverage.

Notes

Make your own hummus to cut down on added salt.
