Crispy baked and packed full of veggies these Vegan Quesadillas are the best you’ll taste and simple too! with mushrooms, black beans, peppers and quesadilla sauce! Cheeseless and Devine! Your taste buds will be singing! Easily gluten free!
We are huge lovers of Mexican food in my house and I have been meaning to share my vegan quesadilla recipe for awhile now! It’s super simple, healthy and versatile!
I fill the tortillas with refried black beans, roasted fajita veggies like mushrooms, zucchini, bell peppers, fresh cilantro, lime juice add some taco seasonings, toss them on a baking sheet and in the oven they go!
I serve them with pico de gallo or salsa and my 3 ingredient quesadilla sauce which is the sauce I use for my burritos (so good!)
Il’l be honest I have never cooked a quesadilla on the stovetop! I have always used the oven or grill! That way they’re done all at the same time for your guests and they’re just as crispy , trust me!! It also gives you the option of leaving out the oil.
The closest Mexican food near me would be about an hour away and it’s not Chilies or Taco Bell but the two mexican restaurants we do have some serve up delicious vegetarian and vegan options! So we head there for a treat once or twice a month.
I’m quite fond of the sweet potato and spinach quesadilla and my husband is almost always a taco man or sometimes the grilled vegetable fajita bowl calls his name lol!
And the rest of the time if I want some plant based Mexican goodness I’m cooking em up in my kitchen: burritos, enchiladas, nachos, Crunchwraps, you name it! and of course my vegan quesadillas they’re Healthy, affordable and down right delicious! So let’s make them shall we!! Enjoy everyone!
How do you make Vegan Quesadillas?
Preheat the oven to 425° Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
In a small bowl mix the seasonings.
Add the mushrooms, peppers, and zucchini to the sheet pan. Drizzle with the oil (if using) and sprinkle the taco seasoning mix on top. Mix with your hands and spread evenly on pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven.
To assemble quesadillas: Evenly spread a layer of refried black beans on a tortilla. Using tongs add some of the roasted veggies to half of the tortilla. Sprinkle with some cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice. Fold the tortilla over to form a half circle. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Using the same large baking sheet remove the parchment and make sure it is wiped dry of moisture. Spray the sheet lightly with cooking spray, add the quesadillas and spray the tops lightly with cooking spray (optional)
Bake for 16 minutes flipping the tortillas half way through baking. Remove from the oven. Cut each quesadilla into thirds. enjoy!! Makes 6 quesadillas. For full recipe ingredients and instructions see recipe card below.
