SAVORY SUNDAYS- SPINACH AND BEAN QUESADILLAS

Hey folks,

Welcome to this edition of Savory Sundays!  I've had vegan cheese on the brain lately since I just recently bought some more Daiya- which I L-O-V-E!  Anyway, the following is a recipe from vegweb that I'm sure Daiya cheese would work in quite nicely!  Check it out!

SPINACH AND BEAN QUESADILLAS

 
INGREDIENTS (use vegan versions):
1 (10 ounce) box frozen chopped spinach, defrosted

1 (15 ounce) can fava beans

garlic, to taste

cumin, to taste

chili powder, to taste

salt and pepper, to taste

oil or cooking spray, as needed

1/2 cup diced roasted red peppers

1/4 cup salsa

2 cups shredded vegan cheese, divided (I would personally use Daiya)

tortillas, to serve

DIRECTIONS
Using blender, add spinach and half the beans with some of their liquid. Pulse until smooth, then add rest of beans.

Add in the garlic, cumin, chili powder, and salt and pepper all according to your taste. Pulse in blender briefly. Meanwhile, heat frying pan on medium high with your choice of oil.

Pour blender mixture into bowl and add peppers, salsa, and one cup of vegan cheese. Mix well. (you can even make this the night before if you like.)

Spread some mixture on 1/2 tortilla, and sprinkle extra cheese on top of mixture. Fold tortilla in half and cook a few minutes on each side until golden brown and piping hot.
Sounds like a good night for Mexican!
