Best cheeseless quesadillas

Hello people and welcome to quesadilla paradise. I should make myself a t-shirt with the slogan “Powered by Quesadillas” because I´ve been eating these quesadillas pretty much every day for the last 10 days. True story.

I couldn´t be happier to be sharing this recipe with you since it´s been a huge hit. It is soooo good. Like next level GOOD. And every single person that tried it, LOVED it. Yes, capitals are necessary here. Even my hardcore meat-and-cheese eater colleague was pleasantly surprised. “Wow, this is really good! Is this vegan? ”. Yes, and FYI it´s filled up with arugula. “Say what?!? I hate arugula!” Well…seems that you just found a way to eat it

Then my mum came visit me (yeyyy! Insert happy dance here) and I told her that she would love my quesadillas recipe. But after I listed the ingredients, she said: “Sonia please, make them without arugula. I can´t stand the taste”. Mum, trust me… And now she´s asking for quesadillas every single day. With arugula please. And I am definitely not mad about it 😀

Conclusion: this recipe is a winner. Even if you HATE arugula. Trust me, these don´t taste like arugula. These delicious vegan and oil-free quesadillas tastes like cheesy non-vegan quesadillas. Oh, and one more thing. This wonderful green spread is so versatile. I´ve tried it on bread, on pasta, with potatoes, as a dip and as a salad dressing. Absolutely delicious. Oh! And you can make it in less than 10 minutes. What can I even say? This recipe is a winner. Period.
