Dairy Free Quesadillas

Yep that's right these are No Queso, Quesadillas! ;)  No cheese or dairy of any kind in them, but I have to say they are not at all missing any flavor!  I love it when I try something for the first time and the whole family loves it!  That's when I quickly write it down so I don't forget what I did!  These were another instant favorite and so much better for you than the "normal" version!  I have also included the lime and cilantro sour cream recipe that was tasty to dip them in.  The Quinoa Salad that is also pictured was really good too but you will have to wait until another post to get that recipe!

Dairy Free Quesadillas
1 can chick peas
1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons water
1 heaping teaspoon Tahini (optional)
1/4-1/2 cup Cheezy Sauce
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
Real salt to taste
2 cups mixed chopped veggies, lightly sauteed, then chopped finer or added with puree
(we used 1 Anaheim chili pepper, some red bell pepper, onion, zucchini and mushrooms)
6-10 whole grain flour tortillas  (depending on size)

In blender or food processor puree chick peas with lemon juice and water.  (If you want the veggies unnoticeable to your picky eaters you can also puree the sauteed veggies in with this mixture.)  In a bowl mix the purred bean mixture with the rest of ingredients, except tortillas of course.

In a frying pan heat up a little coconut oil,  spread the filling thinly over half of a tortilla then fold in half and then using a spatula place in pan.  Fry in pan, until the bottom is golden brown then gently flip to brown the other side.  Repeat until filling is used up.

Lime and Cilantro Sour Cream
1/2 cup Vegenaise
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, or to taste
pinch of Real Salt
1/4 cup Sunflower Seed Sour Cream (optional)
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice, or to taste
1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped

Stir all ingredients together in a bowl.  Use as topping or dip for whatever you think it would be good with!

I made these for dinner tonight with our family's favorite cheezy sauce. They were delicious! I pureed the veggies with the beans because I have a couple of picky ones. They never even knew what all veggies were in there. I used onion, zucchini, celery, and carrot, and a little Anaheim pepper.
