Roasted Red Pepper Quesadillas

If you love quesadillas but can't find or aren't a fan of vegan cheese then these are for you. I personally can find and do like (some) vegan cheeses but would always rather choose a less processed or homemade product over the latter. These quesadillas won't make you miss cheese and will satisfy that insatiable craving once and for all.

These flavor packed quesadillas get their gooey cheesy flavor from a surprising yet perfect ingredient- red pepper hummus! Combined with sauteed vegetables and tender black beans, these quesadillas are sure to please all.

Roasted Red Pepper Quesadillas
serves 2-4
3 tbl extra virgin olive or canola oil
1 poblano, small dice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup minced red onion
1/4 cup minced scallions
2 tbl roughly chopped cilantro
4-10" flour or corn tortillas
1 cup roasted red pepper hummus
1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
vegan sour cream, optional
salsa, optional

In a large saute pan, cook the poblano, garlic, red onion and scallions with a pinch of salt in 1 tbl of oil until just tender, 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and toss in the cilantro.
Spread 1/2 cup each of hummus on 2 tortillas and top with 1/2 cup black beans and the vegetable mix. Top with another tortilla and press down lightly to pack together.
Heat 1 tbl of oil and add the quesadilla to the pan. Once golden brown on the bottom, flip to toast the other side. Cook the second quesadilla the same way.
Use a sharp knife to cut each quesadilla into wedges and serve with sour cream and salsa.
