Daily Vegan Lunch for 9 February, 2013: Refried Bean Quesadillas

bean quesadillas


Can of refried beans (for those of you who don’t live in the US: refried beans are cooked, smashed pinto beans in a can. They’re not actually fried as far as I know)
Tortillas — I used chia seed/wheat tortillas from Trader Joe’s


Spread one tortilla with refried beans about 1/4 inch thick. You can also sprinkle on some raw chopped onion if you have it. Stick another tortilla to the beans like a sandwich.

On a griddle that has been heated to medium-high, spray or pour a tiny amount of oil (1 teaspoon or less) and swirl the pan so the oil coats it. I use a cast iron griddle. Fry the beanie tortilla on each side for about 45 seconds. When it comes off the griddle, cut it into eighths and top the individual slices with salsa and avocados.
