About this Recipe

By: Caitlin Greene

These crispy and creamy quesadillas are dairy-free and super easy to make for those looking for a vegetarian or vegan meal that screams “comfort food”! 3 key ingredients are tomatoes, ricotta, and cumin, though you could swap/leave these out if your palette prefers. I served these topped with fresh dill, chives, and some guacamole! Lunch for two done in just minutes. Have you tried this hack yet? Not usually one for trends but this one is just too handy...and you know I love some quesadillas! Feel free to make a regular quesadilla, but make sure you consider how fun this one is to make!

To add a different texture, I used ricotta combined with spinach. Cumin adds a touch of warmth and enhances the flavor of the ricotta. You could choose to use regular dairy cheese if you do not have a preference, and you could also replace the gouda for a different type of cheese - I like the flavor profile the gouda creates, so it was a must for me. Feel free also to use another dark leafy green if you would like.

What You'll Need For This Recipe:
4 gluten-free tortillas
Produce-
½ cup steamed spinach
½ cup dairy-free ricotta
¾ cup shredded dairy-free gouda
½ cup chopped tomatoes

Spices-
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
Black pepper to taste

Yield: 4
