Delicious and Easy Cheesy Vegan Quesadillas with a Creamy Corn Salsa

Whether you’re making these quesadillas for breakfast, lunch or dinner I feel like this recipe works at any time of the day. This vegan friendly recipe works in a hot pan or a George Foreman grill. This recipe was a sponsored post from Follow Your Heart over on my instagram.

Let’s get into the quesadilla recipe

Wraps– You want a good quality wrap for this recipe, you can use wholemeal, seeded or white wraps for this recipe. Whatever you can get your hands on will be fine!

Mixed Beans- I usually get a 300g tin of mixed beans which has chickpeas, kidney beans, black beans and borlotti beans. If you just have chickpeas, or one type of bean this will work of course!

Vegan Cheese- I’m a big fan of the smoked gouda from follow your heart too, it gives a delicious smokey flavour to this recipe.

Vegenaise- The product I was showcasing in the recipe is the Follow Your Heart Avocado Oil Vegenaise which works a treat! Creamy, silky smooth and works perfectly with the corn ‘salsa’ on top.
