Smoky White Bean Quesadillas


This is one tasty vegan quesadilla!  And…it’s super easy!  You can make the spread in advance, take it for lunch or just use it as a chip dip.  The nutritional yeast and garlic give it a cheesy flavor and the beans and tomatoes give a wonderful consistency! 


Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Servings:  4


1 cup white beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup tomatoes, chopped
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
few drops liquid smoke
garlic powder, to taste
1/2 teaspoon salt
pepper or cayenne pepper, to taste
4 whole wheat tortillas
cilantro, to garnish
salsa, to garnish


1. Blend together the white beans and tomatoes until very smooth. Add nutritional yeast, liquid smoke, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Blend again until well combined and smooth.

2. Heat a dry nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Put a tortilla into skillet, and spread 1/2 the bean mixture on the tortilla, then top with another tortilla.

3. Cook over medium heat until crisp on one side, then flip and repeat on the other side.

4. Once it is cooked and the bean mixture is warm and gooey, remove from pan, slice into 6-8 wedges. Repeat with the other tortillas. Serve with cilantro and/or salsa.
