Vegan Avocado Quesadillas? Sure! Why Not?
If you’ve ever wanted a vegan or a dairy-free alternative to the quesadilla, this recipe from The Garden Grazer is for you. It’s simple and easy for beginners to try.
Avocados are an excellent source of nutrients, healthy fats, and are full of antioxidants. Although they do not have the same nutriontal value as dairy, using Avocados as a substitute for cheese serves as a beneficial and healthy alternative.
1/2 avocado, more if you prefer
1 small roma tomato, diced
1 green onion, sliced
2 tsp. nutritional yeast
Seasonings of choice (I love smoked paprika, cumin, garlic powder, etc.)
1 large tortilla
Smash avocado and spread out on one half of the tortilla. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast and any seasonings. Add tomato, green onions, and salsa. (Or save the salsa for dipping!)
Fold over the top half of the tortilla, and place on a skillet over medium heat.
Heat for a few minutes on each side until warmed through.
