Who knew ooey-gooey deliciousness could be so wholesome?

Cheesy Corn and Smashed Avocado Quesadillas [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan

Serves

12

Cook Time

15

Ingredients

For the Vegan Cheese:

  • 1 15-ounce can corn
  • 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • Salt and pepper

For the Quesadillas:

  • 1-2 smashed avocados
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • Your favorite tortillas
  • Chili powder (optional)

Preparation

To Make the Vegan Cheese:

  1. Combine corn, garlic, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper to taste in the bowl of a blender or food processor. Process until the mixture is well combined. Don’t over-process or it will end up too smooth.

To Make the Quesadillas:

  1. Put smashed avocado on your favorite tortilla. Add halved cherry tomatoes. Top all of it with a real good amount of cheesy corn. If you like, add a bit more heat with the optional chili powder. Finish with the second tortilla.
  2. Cut the quesadilla into triangles, brush them with a bit oil if needed. Bake at 400°F on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet for around 15 minutes, until crispy and golden.

Delicious!! Too much garlic, though, and I only added 2 cloves. I didn\'t use avocado because of intolerance and took a bit of oil instead. thank you!

This recipe turned out great! I added some yellow capsicum, red onion and coriander to pump up the vegetable content. It was perfect, thank you.

How many tortillas do you use with this mixture? Surely more than just 2? (meaning 1 quesadilla)
