Black Bean Quesadillas
Black bean quesadillas are a quick and easy vegan meal that can be made ahead of time and packed for a road trip. They are portable, filling, and tasty! The black beans are packed with protein so you will stay full for longer.
The black bean quesadillas can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to eat. Let thaw overnight in the fridge if using frozen black bean mixture. Otherwise, let it sit at room temperature while you prepare your other ingredients.
Just add all ingredients into a food processor until smooth! Add more water as needed if it is too thick.
Add mixture onto one tortilla then top with another tortilla before placing on the heated skillet, this helps seal them when flipping over! Cook about two minutes per side, pressing down occasionally to flatten out any air bubbles that might form between tortillas. You could also cook these in an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Hummus And Veggie Wraps

Spread hummus onto wraps or tortillas. Top with vegetables of choice. Roll up and enjoy! Note that if you’re taking these hummus and veggie wraps on the go, we recommend packing them separately from any wet ingredients like tomatoes so they don’t get soggy. You can also pack a small container of hummus to dip your wrap into. Enjoy!
