Today is Vegan Thursday! (If you don’t know what that is, check out Chocolate-Covered Katie’s blog). Since I’m already 90% vegan (and 100% vegetarian), I decided on Vegan Thursdays, I’d come up with a new vegan recipe. Thus, we have these delicious, cheeseless quesadillas!
I made this using ingredients already in my pantry and fridge. It’s all really basic stuff. I’m trying to keep the food bill low this week, so look for more pantry concoctions soon! :-)
I have a feeling this spread would also be good between two slices of bread as a cheeseless grilled cheese!
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon yellow miso
2 tablespoons vegan cream or milk (I used unsweetened MimicCream)
2 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teapsoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Tortillas of your choice
Place everything except the tortillas in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. This is your “cheeze.” Spread a generous layer of “cheeze” on a tortilla. Place another tortilla on top of the cheese (you know, like a sandwich). Grill over medium heat in a lightly oiled nonstick skillet or griddle until toasted (about 5 minutes). Flip over and grill other side. Cut into wedges. Repeat until you have a big pile of delicious quesadillas.
