The combination of crispy and creamy texture, as well as the sweet, cheesy, and smoky flavor profile with a bit of spiciness makes these quesadillas a total crowd pleaser. They're especially great because they can be whipped up in just 10 minutes! Serve with fresh veggies, salsa, baked beans, or vegan sour cream.

Sweet Potato Quesadillas [Vegan]



  • 2 cups baked or steamed sweet potatoes
  • 6 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)
  • Salt, to taste
  • 6-8 large whole grain tortillas


  1. Combine the sweet potatoes, nutritional yeast, Sriracha, smoked paprika, and salt in a medium bowl and mash with a fork until smooth. You can also do this in a food processor if you prefer.
  2. Spread the filling evenly on 3 or 4 large tortillas, depending on how much filling you want in your quesadillas. Top with the remaining tortillas and push together gently.
  3. Quickly toast on both sides in a nonstick pan, or broil in the oven, until crispy.
  4. Take off the heat and serve immediately.
