Recipe: Tomato, Black Bean, and Tofu Quesadilla

Recipe: Tomato, Black Bean, and Tofu Quesadilla

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 sweet onion, diced
  2. 1 block of firm tofu, cubed
  3. 1 red pepper, diced
  4. 1 yellow pepper, diced
  5. 3 cups diced tomatoes
  6. 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  7. 1 can black beans, rinsed
  8. Salt and pepper to taste
  9. Olive oil
  10. 4 whole wheat tortillas
  11. Shredded cheese

Directions

  • In a pan, sauté the onions in one teaspoon of olive oil on medium heat.
  • In a separate pan, sauté tofu in one teaspoon oil. Season with some salt and pepper, stirring every so often until lightly browned.
  • Add the peppers to the pan with the onions, and sauté for five minutes.

  • Add the tomatoes, the cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper, and cook on low for 10 minutes, or until it's thickened up. Mix in the black beans and cook for another few minutes.
  • Stir in the tofu and remove from heat. Place in a storage container for now.

  • Wash the pan and place it back on the stove on medium heat with one teaspoon olive oil. Place a tortilla in the pan and spin it around to distribute the oil.
  • On one half, sprinkle a little shredded cheese. Add half a cup or so of the tomato and bean mixture, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle on a little more cheese and fold the tortilla in half. Cook on both sides for a couple minutes, then serve.

  • Cook up the rest of the quesadillas or place the tomato mixture in the fridge for later.

Usually I make something like this in a big bowl without a wrap, but it will be delish pressed in a tortilla like that. Yum!

wow that looks delicious. I think it definitely needs pineapple though and a little bbq sauce. I'm making that soon for sure.
