I’ve been crazing mexican food lately, but it’s not as fun without real cheese. I finally got some Trader Joe’s brand of Daiya cheese last week, so I decided to make quesadillas because it doesn’t matter if the cheese doesn’t taste amazing in them, it’s more for the melty texture. I put some vegan pesto, cut up olives, and cheese on whole wheat tortillas and they were really good and very creamy!
I made vegan pesto by putting in the food processor:
A large bunch of basil (maybe 2 cups of leaves)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup pine nuts (or you can use walnuts)
garlic to taste
I really don’t mind not having the cheese in the pesto and don’t notice it
I took the easy way out and cooked them in the toaster oven for a few minutes until they got lightly brownedLike
