Vegan Recipe of the Day: Deliciously Easy Cheesy Vegan Quesadilla 1 Ingredients

The good thing about this recipe is that you can put anything you want in it. I’ve chosen the protein-rich black beans and sweet corn because they are amazingly filling and complement each other very well while the bell peppers add color and texture to the whole thing.

  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1/2 tsp garlic (crushed)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 15oz (425g) black beans
  • 1 15oz (425g) sweet corn
  • salt and black pepper

The guacamole dip is super easy to make. You only need:

  • 2 avocados (mashed up)
  • 1/2 fresh lime (squeezed)
  • salt and black pepper to taste

For the assembling, you need:

  • 1 and 1/4 cups vegan cheese (or homemade cheese)
  • 8 gluten-free corn tortillas (or wheat tortillas)

Heat some olive oil in a frying pan and toss in the chopped onion and crushed garlic. Add the cayenne pepper and cumin and gently fry them until the onions become soft. Toss in the black beans and corn and mix all the ingredients. Add salt and pepper to your liking.

Mash the two avocados in a bowl, stir in the lime juice and add sea salt and black pepper to taste. Grate the vegan cheese. In a heated frying pan, gently brown one tortilla on both sides. On one side, add the beans mix, some guacamole and vegan cheese. Fold it and pat it down with your spatula to make sure the content sticks together. Cook for two minutes on each side until they both become light brown. Repeat with a new tortilla until you finish.
