Vegan Quesadillas

24 Jun

Don’t you just love super easy meals?  If you follow our meal plans, you will see a lot of quesadillas.  I realize that a vegan quesadilla is an oxymoron.  But read on…it is one of our favorites!  (the kids eat cheese on theirs)

Oh how I love colored peppers!  Just slice those babies (as well as some serranos or jalapenos) and put them dry on a grill pan.

Look how good those veggie look!

Gluten free, vegan quesadillas

Brown rice tortillas

Vegan black beans (I like Central Market Organics)

Colored peppers, jalapenos, and any other pepper you like


Optional, cumin and chili powder

Optional, cilantro, pickled jalapenos, pickled onions, slaw, olives, and anything your heart desires

Earth Balance

Heat the grill pan or electric grill.  Slice peppers and place on the grill.  You don’t need anything on the pan, just some heat.  While those are cooking, spread the refried beans on the tortilla.  Add any seasonings you may want, any veggies, and top with peppers.  I love mixing some spicy peppers in there.  They lose heat as they cook.  And really amp up the flavor.  Place some Earth Balance on the grill, add the quesadillas and grill until they are browning.  SO good! So cheap!  So easy!
