Servings2 quesadillas

Ingredients

  • 1 roma tomato (thinly sliced)
  • 3/4 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup vegan pesto (more/less as desired)
  • 1/2 cup vegan mozzarella shreds (I like Follow Your Heart or Miyokos)
  • 1/4 cup vegan feta crumbles (optional)
  • 2 large tortillas (gluten-free if desired)

Instructions

  • Spread a thin layer of pesto on one half of your tortilla.
  • Over the pesto, add a light layer of mozzarella and feta (if using).
  • Add tomato slices, spinach, and top with another layer of mozzarella cheese (to help "glue" it together).
  • Carefully place the quesadilla on a skillet over medium heat. Let heat for about 5 minutes, flip, then heat for another 5 minutes or until cheese has melted and tortilla is slightly browned & crispy.
  • Repeat the process for the second quesadilla.

Notes

Customize: Adjust the amounts as you see fit to better customize yours with the flavors you enjoy.
Spinach: The spinach wilts as it heats, so I often add extra.
