Now I realize that Vegan quesadillas is an oxymoron…what with queso meaning cheese and all..but I wasn’t sure what else to call them. This was actually a conglomeration of a couple Vegan Dad recipe from the cookbook, but since I’m an over achiever, I went and found them on the site for you as well.
The main idea came from his Potato-Cheese quesadillas. I made the tortillas from the recipe, and did the potato filling, although I tripled the hot sauce. Instead of using Vegan cheese, I mixed in about 1/3 cup of Nooch. In the search for a protein of sorts, I made his Tofu Chick’n from the wrap recipe.
The quesadillas were filled with the potato mixture and generous handful of the tofu chick’n. They were folded in half and then pressed down in a cast iron skillet for about 30 seconds a side, just to heat things up a bit.
I drenched everything in salsa, because that’s what I do, but I’m excited to report I didn’t miss the cheese in this AT ALL. In fact, it occurred to me as I was eating that greasy cheese melted over all the great flavors inside probably would’ve killed this. Now I just need to figure out nachos without cheese…that’ll be harder for me.
