Level of Difficulty: EASY
Pots/Pans Used: 1! (+ a cutting board)
1/4 can refried beans
Tofutti's Better Than Sour cream (optional)
I probably make this meal about twice a week simply because it is so incredibly easy and takes very little time, effort and ingredients. I just use beans and avocado as a filling, because I'm never satisfied with the way vegan cheese melts (or more importantly, doesn't melt).
Now, just start out by putting a medium-sized frying pan on low heat with the tortilla laying flat in the pan. Then, spread about 1/4 can of the refried beans on one half of the tortilla (I used to heat up the beans separately in a sauce pan, but they heat up just the same on the tortilla). Then, you are going to mash up half an avocado with a fork (if you like your avocado in slices, that's fine. I just prefer a guacamole texture). When the beans are heated throughout, spread the guacamole on top of the beans. Then, fold over the other half of the tortilla on top of the guacamole & beans half. By this point, the tortilla should be nice and crisp. Then, flip the Quesadilla over to let both sides heat nicely (about 1 min). Finally you're ready to slice them up and serve them with your favorite condiments such as sour cream and salsa. Enjoy!
NOTE: This recipe is for a half order of Quesadillas. If you want a full six pieces, just stack one tortilla on top of the other instead of doing my "folding-over" method.
