Recipe

Buffalo sauce makes everything taste better in my opinion. I think I could eat it on anything and be happy. Recently I have been really loving quesadillas for lunch, so this simple vegetarian buffalo chickpea quesadilla made the perfect meal. I will warn you that the filling is a little bit messy but it's well worth the mess. Served with some low fat ranch dressing or crumbled blue cheese, yum!

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chickpeas, cauliflower, carrots, and celery. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Cook for 6-8 minutes until cauliflower is tender.
  2. Stir in buffalo sauce. If desired, mash chickpeas slightly using the back of a spoon or fork. Mashing the chickpeas makes the mixture easier to stuff into the quesadillas.
  3. To assemble quesadillas, lay out each wrap and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cheese on half of the wrap. Top with chickpea mixture and 2 more tablespoons cheese. Fold and heat in a nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray until cheese melts. Flip and continue cooking on other side until wrap gets crispy.

    Excellent recipe with tons of flavor! I added in shrimp to increase the protein content.
