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!

- 2 tsp. olive oil
- 1 cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 cup cauliflower, diced
- 2 U carrots, diced
- 2 U celery ribs, diced
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. onion powder
- 1/2 cup buffalo sauce (like Frank's)
- 4 U low carb wraps
- 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup cilantro
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.
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.
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.
