"Carne Asada" Quesadillas (Veggie)


Among the old-fashioned cheese quesadilla, the carne asada (grilled beef) quesadilla was personally my second best. Since I became vegetarian however, those carne asada days have been over for me (fellow Mexicans, please don't scold me)! It's not until recently that I found some veggie meat crumbles and thought of "veggie-fying" a classic. It takes little time and is easy to make.

Vegetarian / Vegan meat crumbles
Flour tortillas
Monterey Jack cheese

1. Cook the meat crumbles with some olive oil until ready or a little crispy.
2. Heat a tortilla in a clean pan. Flip till both sides are warm.
3. Add cheese and meat crumbles to half of the tortilla. Fold the tortilla in half.
4. Flip it and allow the cheese to fully melt. For crispier texture, leave the tortilla on the pan longer.
5. Enjoy!

  3. This looks good! But for me, I haven't been a huge fan of veggie meat, because it tastes a little too much like regular meat and freaks me out, Haha!

  8. Yummy! It took me ages to find the American term for 'mince' for my vegetarian recipes. You call it 'crumbles'. Two nations divided by a common language :-)
