Meatless Monday: Vegan Quesadillas

August 5, 2013

Vegan quesadillas are a quick and easy meatless meal.  Whole wheat vegan tortillas are sandwiched with vegetarian refried beans, salsa, vegetables, and vegan pepper jack cheese slices.  If you prefer your quesadillas with a little heat, add in chopped jalapenos or green chilies.  Serve this vegan meal with Spanish rice.
