Quick and easy Vegan Avocado Quesadilla! A healthier version of quesadillas that replaces cheese with creamy plant-based avocado instead.
Quesadillas were always a quick and easy go-to meal for us, but when I stopped eating cheese, well… so went the quesadillas.
I desperately wanted them back in my life and although an obvious substitution would be vegan cheese, this seemed like it could be a job for avocados.
Turns out it is a great replacement! I like that they are healthier than cheese quesadillas, and I think they taste even better.
Add black beans, sweet corn, or your own favorite quesadilla additions. Various seasonings such as smoked paprika, ground cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, etc. are flavorful additions as well.
Or you can simply replace the cheese with avocado in any of your own favorite quesadillas!
