✌ Vegan Kitchen: Tofu Quesadillas! ✌

Some times you just have to have a nice lazy day, especially when it's all rainy out and you feel nice and cozy inside... and I muchly needed one with the amount of work going on lately. 
On these lazy days I find myself cooking and eating whatever I want. Within reason of course. It's no fun feeling like crap while you're enjoying a cozy day inside. But comfort food is awesome, especially when it tastes this good and is still healthy! Win win! 

I've always loved quesadillas and, really, when they taste this awesome how can you possibly not be vegan? 

Vegan Quesadillas:

1/4 block of Medium Tofu
2 tsp Chili powder
1/4 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tbsp Ketchup

2 Brown Rice Tortilla Shells (defrosted)
1/2 a Red Pepper, chopped
1/2 a Zucchini, grated
1/4 cup Spinach
1/4 cup Daiya Cheese

You can throw whatever you like in them really, but this was my mix-up and I was super excited to have daiya cheese in it! Yum! 

A good tip for this recipe (and with most recipes that call for Tofu, unless you like the natural flavor of tofu like I do ~_^) is to sauté the tofu for 10-15 minutes so it soaks up the flavor of the spices. So, that being said... 

In a medium pot or frying pan, sauté the Tofu in the spices and a little bit of water (to avoid sticking) for 10-15 minutes. Add the ketchup after about 5 minutes. 
Add the Red Peppers, Zucchini, and Spinach (and whatever else you might want to add) and continue to sauté on medium heat for another couple minutes. 

In a large frying pan, lay down the Tortilla shell, add a little cheese, toss in the Tofu mixture, layer up the rest of the cheese and fold in half. Toast for a couple minutes on each side until the cheese melts and the wrap is browned on both sides. 

This makes 1 large (sandwiching the mixture between two shells) or two halved (like I like to do, folding the shell in half), enough for two people--or one if you are feeling extra hungry. ;)

Easy lazy super yummy dinner time! And still managed to keep it healthy! ;) 

Hope you're all having a wonderful day, rain or shine!
