Vegetable Quesadilla Recipe

This recipe serves one, but go ahead and double it if you are extra hungry (I always need two servings of this recipe!) or you’re making it for friends or family.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Servings: 1 


  • 1.5 oz (40g) tinned garbanzo beans (chickpeas)

  • ¼ garlic clove

  • 1 tsp lemon juice 

  • 1 pinch ground paprika

  • Sea salt to taste

  • 2 wholemeal wraps or corn tortillas

  • 1 small handful baby spinach

  • ½ medium tomato

  • 1.5 oz (40g)mushrooms

  • 1 oz (30g) canned corn kernels 

  • 1.5 oz (40g) tinned black beans

  • ½ oz (15g) dairy or vegan cheese


  1. To make the hummus, place the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, paprika, salt and 1½ tbsp water in a food processor and pulse until creamy.

  2.  Preheat a sandwich press.

  3. Spread the hummus over half of the wrap or tortilla and lay on the sandwich press. Top with the spinach, tomato, mushroom, corn, black beans and cheese. Fold in half to enclose the filling and gently press down the lid.

  4. Toast for 3-5 minutes or until the wrap or tortilla is crisp and golden brown.

  5. To serve, place the vegetable quesadilla on a serving plate and cut in half. Enjoy!

To make this recipe vegan, simply use non-dairy cheese. And don’t stress if you don’t have these exact ingredients — you can use this recipe as a guide and substitute in similar ingredients that you have on hand.
