Vegan Cajun Quesadillas

Found this recipe in a non-vegan quesadilla recipe book. After lots of modifications it turned out quite nice.


  • 1 package frozen vegan shrimp, thawedIMG_6382
  • 2 cups chards
  • 1 chopped orange bell pepper
  • 1 can drained diced tomatoes
  • 1 can drained black eye peas
  • 1 package of diced vegan sausage (Italian)
  • tortillas
  • 1 package vegan daiya gouda cheese, shredded
  • 1 package vegan daiya provolone slices
  • 1 TBsp paprika
  • 2 TBsp cajun spices
  • rice
  • olive oil

IMG_6383First I fried the fake meats in some olive oil on medium heat, then I added all the veggies and spices and fried on low for 5-6 more minutes.

Then I assembled the tortillas while making rice on the side. I did a layer of gouda, then a layer of cajun mix, then one slice of provolone cut up in to strips. Fold the quesadilla in half and fry in some grapeseed oil for 2-3 minutes each side on medium heat. IMG_6384

This made 6 half size quesadillas. It also made lots of leftover cajun mix that I stored over rice for leftovers.

The cajun mix was great and actually better over rice. The version as a quesadilla was a little bit bitter from the cheese so I topped it with BBQ sauce for the perfect combo.
