Vegan Black Bean Quesadilla

What is a quesadilla with out cheese, you may ask?? It’s damn delicious, is what it is.

I’d be lying if I told you I was meaning to make these vegan, but pregnancy brain is a funny thing & makes you forget important ingredients like cheese on your quesadilla. I have made these now multiple times, with and with out cheese. Honestly, I don’t notice a difference. So sprinkle some cheese on if you’d like or just omit it all together.

I’d like to chat about vegan recipes for a second. Last year I gave up meat for lent so I searched for a ton of vegan recipes they were all so complicated! I had a hard time finding quick easy recipes. Maybe those easy ones are supposed to be common sense, but transitioning from a meat eater to no meat for 40 days I did not know where to start. Well, this one comes together in less than 15 minutes and is only 4 ingredients. Y’all it doesn’t get any easier than that, so add it into your meatless Monday rotation and you will not be disappointed!

I served with a side of yellow rice, pico de gallo, and sour cream (not vegan - oops).
