Vegan quesadillas are my favorite dishes. They are so easy to prepare, tasty to eat and allow so much room for customization. You can fill them according to your taste or mood and can even experiment with different fillings to invent your own style quesadillas. And I think that is why they are so loved all over the world. Hence I thought why not share two of my unique quesadilla recipes with you today?
