Meaty Vegan Quesadillas- you'd never know there is no meat or cheese!

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.

These vegan quesadillas are so delicious- tons of meaty flavor and so good!

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.

Until now.

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!
