Tempeh Veggie Quesadillas

These tempeh veggie quesadillas are delicious! This is a dairy-free, healthy quesadilla recipe. I use refried beans and avocado to give them a creamy texture inside and to hold them together....no cheese needed!


  • 1 package burrito-size wraps (I use Ezekiel Sprouted whole grain wraps)
  • 1 package organic tempeh
  • 1 can refried black beans
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 red, yellow, & green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onion, chopped
  • 10-12 pitted black olives, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 package organic spicy taco seasoning

  1. Steam tempeh in a pan with a little water. Cover. Then, crumble the tempeh (you can use a blender on very low setting to do this). Saute crumbled tempeh in a teaspoon of coconut oil over medium-low heat to lightly brown. Mix the taco seasoning packet with 1/2 cup water and add it to the tempeh and stir. Simmer on very low so the tempeh doesn't burn.
  2. Wash peppers thoroughly. Chop peppers, green onion, avocado and olives. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Add olive oil, lime juice, and cilantro. Mix well.
  3. Lightly grease another large skillet with coconut oil on medium-low heat.
  4. Put one tablespoon of refried black beans on a wrap. Spread evenly. Add 2 tablespoons of cooked tempeh and 2 tablespoons of veggie mix to the wrap. Cover with a lid until filling is warm and wrap is lightly browned; about 3 min.
  5. Fold over one half of the warp to meet the other side and press together with a spatula to flatten. Flip once to ensure both sides of quesadilla are equally browned and filling is warm. Careful not to burn it!
  6. Place the quesadilla on a plate. Let cool for 1 min. Then, cut into thirds. Serve with salsa and guacamole.
