“Cheesy” Quesadillas

  • Flour Tortillas

Lentil mix

  • 1/2 cup of brown lentils
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 2 tablespoons Bragg’s liquid aminos
  • 2 cups water

Cheese sauce

  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1/3 cup almonds
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons chia
  • 1/2 cup water
  1. Cook the lentil mix by combining all the ingredients until the lentils are soft. We want an almost mushy consistency.
  2. While lentils are cooking mix 1/4 cup of water with chia and let sit for 10 minutes. Add nuts and leftover water ( sub almond milk) to the blender and blend until smooth.  Blend in the last of the ingredients until fully mixed. Once spices and N.Y are blended and the chia ( it should be a pudding-like texture).Allow setting until lentil are fully cooked.
  3. This part is the assembly of our quesadillas.
    1. Warm the tortillas before use.
    2. Spread a substantial amount of lentils on one-half of the tortilla.
    3. On the other half add 3-4 tablespoons of the cheese sauce to the tortilla and spread it.
    4. Fold the tortilla and allow it to brown on both outer sides of the tortilla.

Et Voila! You have a tasty vegan quesadilla. Use salsa to give it an extra kick or even add more cheese sauce!
