Vegan butter bean quesadillas with caramelised onions and sautéed kale. I replaced cheese with avocado garlic mayo to give you that super creamy quesadilla vibe!
I LOVE A GOOD QUESADILLA. They need to be creamy though! There are endless ways to fill quesadillas and I love trying new fillings. This Ramadan I tried my hand at butter bean quesadillas. I have been loving this bean and thought it would definitely hold well in a quesadilla.
I skipped the cheese in this quesadillas and used creamy avocado mayo. Making these accidentally vegan and so good.
These quesadillas are so rich and filled with veggies. This mixture is a perfect way to add extra veggies to your sandwich or wrap mixture.
I kept the recipe super simple as if you are just trying out with this bean you can increase your flavour next time. I have since tried these with sun-dried tomatoes and roasted peppers. WOW just wow. Soo good.
I toasted this deliciously creamy mixture of mashed butter beans, caramelised onions, garlic avocado mayo and sautéed kale with my homemade tortillas.
These wonderful golden wraps are made with 2 ingredients and they are both technically vegetables. Cassava flour (cassava is a root vegetable) and butternut squash! Grab this EXTREMELY easy recipe over here.
Butter beans are a great source of protein and fibre. These beans are so versatile. You can add them whole into salads, soups and stews. But recently I have loved mashing them. Butter beans have the perfect texture for mashing.
They have beautiful soft interior which makes them become super creamy when mashed. You could also use other white beans like haricot beans or even chickpeas.
Chickpea quesadillas are SOO GOOD! We had those a lot during ramadan and I have a delicious recipe for this here. I used tomatoes, red peppers, cumin and paprika for extra flavour and you will not want to skip this recipe.
Grab the recipe below and if you try these I hope you enjoy!
