Mexican food is one of my favourite dishes to make, and during this summer's heat wave, what better way to enjoy the sun than with some delicious Quesadillas and juicy, fresh salad?! Quesadillas are a flat tortilla stuffed with spiced veggies with a gooey melted cheesy centre! This recipe is Vegan, Gluten-free, Wheat-free, Dairy-free! I also added a drizzle of homemade Sour cream, Tomato Salsa and the best vegan Guacamole!


Spicy Quesadillas (Vegan + GF)

  • 1 tbsp of oil
  • 3 large plum tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 red bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)
  • 1 carton of cooked kidney beans
  • 4 green jalapeños (chopped)
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp fajita seasoning
  • Gluten-free wraps (I used B-free Multigrain Wraps with Quinoa & Chia seeds)
  • Grated dairy-free cheese (I used Violife)

Spicy Quesadillas (Vegan + GF)

1. Heat up the oil in a large wok.

2. Shallow fry the chopped onion & garlic on a low heat until golden, then add in the red & yellow pepper.

Cook for a few minutes until softened, then add in the kidney beans, tomato, jalapeños and seasoning. Cook for around 5-10 minutes until soft.

Keep stirring with a wooden spoon to prevent sticking!

3. Line baking trays with grease proof paper and lay down the tortilla wraps.

4. Divide the filling onto each wrap (only one half) and follow with grated cheese.

Fold over the tortilla wrap.

5. Cook for around 5 minutes or until lightly brown and the cheese has melted!

Cut the quesadillas in half, and serve whilst warm with a drizzle of the sour cream, salsa, guacamole, lime Juice, fresh salad, olives and fresh coriander.

I hope you give these delicious spicy quesadillas a try! And if you do, be sure to tag the picture #AVogelRecipes on Pinterest so we can see :)

This recipe is full of goodness

  • Good source of protein
  • Rich in dietary fibre
  • High in folate, iron, manganese & vitamin B1

When combined with whole grains such as rice, beans become a good source of protein, also as a ‘complete protein’, which is a source of protein that contains an adequate proportion of all nine essential amino acids necessary for our dietary needs. Rich in fibre, beans such as kidney beans can also help to lower cholesterol, improve digestive health and stabilise blood sugar, whilst also providing a good source of slow release energy.
