There's no worse experience than turning up to a cookout and discovering that there's no vegan option available. For vegetarians, it's a little easier - they can usually grab a cheese and onion vegetarian quesadilla - but if it's not made with vegan cheese, it's not much comfort for the vegans.

If you're catering for vegan guests and you're planning a Mexican themed meal, these vegan quesadillas are the perfect dish to ensure your guests feel welcome and provided for. For an extra special treat, prepare your own tortillas the traditional way, using a cast iron tortilla press and following our flour tortilla recipe.

Variations

Switch out the wheat flour tortillas for traditional Mexican style ones, for a corn tortilla quesadilla.

You can add rice to the black bean and corn mix if you want to bulk out the filling for a heartier version of these vegan quesadillas. Simply precook some white rice or Mexican red rice and mix in with the beans and corn once you have drained them.

For some extra flavor, add chopped green or red bell peppers to the pan along with the onions and sautee until soft. You can also add chili peppers if you want to increase the heat of your vegan quesadillas - but be sure to warn your guests before they bite into them. If you're making a mix of hot and not so hot vegan quesadillas, use cocktail sticks to mark out the really spicy ones, so you don't serve the wrong one to the wrong person!

If you're just looking for a vegetarian quesadilla recipe, rather than making strictly vegan quesadillas, you can follow the steps above but use dairy cheese, as well as regular soured cream. Monterey Jack, sharp cheddar or mozzarella all work well, but make sure the brand you buy is made with vegetarian rennet, not animal rennet.
