Rich, hearty meaty flavor without any dairy or meat make these meaty vegan quesadillas a delicious meal you can’t get enough of!
Quesadillas are one of my favorite foods.
And really- they kind of count as an entire food group.
Bread, veggies, meat… and glorious, ooey, gooey cheese.
So… when I’m trying to eat a bit lighter and stick to meat-free dishes, quesadillas aren’t the first thing I think of.
I recently made a delicious vegan taco skillet that honestly tastes meaty (with no soy, tofu, processed foods…) I decided to add it to a tortilla to see how it went.
The results were amazing!
It is creamy with no cheese- and the veggies are toothsome enough to not feel like mush. All around, a huge win!
These delicious, creamy (without cheese!!!) quesadillas rest pretty much on this awesome Paleo Vegan Taco Skillet recipe.
It has a TON of meaty flavor- and really has a creamy texture in a quesadilla! It is perfect between some slightly toasted tortillas!
