No-Cheese Vegan Quesadillas

Wednesday, August 2013

  • 1 large vegan tortilla (or wrap)
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 small sweet onion, diced
  • 1 avocado, cubed or sliced
  • 1-2 limes (Use 1 squeeze for the vegetables, and the rest sliced up for serving)
  • Salt & herbs/spices to taste
  • 1/3 cup garlic hommus OR vegan refried/mashed black beans
  • 1/2 -1 teaspoon olive oil for pan


  1. Add chopped onion, tomato and avocado to a large bowl along with the spices - be sure to salt a bit and add some spices for flavour. Add a squeeze of lime juice and mix ingredients together.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan over high heat.
  3. Place the tortillas in the oiled pan to warm them and toast the edges a bit. You can even flip once to warm the inside surface if using thick tortillas.
  4. Remove the warmed tortillas from pan and slather the hommus or beans over the inside, then add a generous amount of the avocado mixture.
  5. Close the tortilla and carefully place in hot pan, cooking for 1-2 minutes on each side. Flip carefully and push the filling back inside the tortilla if it falls out.
  6. Serve warm with fresh lime wedges and some additional avocado mix on the side.

Serves 1-2 as snack.
