Ingredients
  

  • 8 Large Soft Tortillas
  • 1 Package Vegan Cheese Shreds
  • 2 Cups Cooked White Rice (or Brown Rice)
  • 1 tbsp Grapeseed Oil
  • 1 Package Meatless Crumbles We used LightLife Mexican Crumbles that are pre-seasoned to taste like taco ground. If you can’t find the Mexican Crumbles from LightLife, you can buy any other meatless ground and add half a packet of taco seasoning.
  • 1 Half Yellow Onion Chopped
  • 2 Cloves Garlic Crushed
  • Homemade Vegan Sour Cream
  • Vegan Nacho Cheese Optional

Instructions
 

  • To begin the Vegan Quesarito, start by cooking all of the cooked ingredients first. In a pan on a medium heat setting, saute yellow onions & garlic for about 2-3 minutes. (If you don’t have pre-cooked rice in your fridge, cook your rice first and then proceed to this step).
  • Once the onions and garlic become fragrant, add in your choice of meatless ground and cook together for about 5-7 minutes. Since this isn’t real meat, the meatless ground doesn’t require much time to cook.
  • Once you have prepared the rice and meatless ground, it’s time to make the quesadilla wrap Pre-heat your griddle to the medium-high setting. Begin by spreading an even layer of vegan cheese shreds (& nacho cheese if you opted-in) in between two tortillas and press for about 1 minute. The goal is to melt the cheese but not overheat the tortillas so that they remain malleable for your burrito wrapping.
  • Now that your ingredients are cooked and the quesadilla is made, you’re ready to build your first Vegan Quesarito! Layer the rice, meatless ground, Homemade Vegan Sour Cream, & cheese shreds on the quesadilla and wrap it like a burrito. Gently press in the griddle again after wrapping to secure the fold and your Vegan Quesarito is done. Enjoy!
