Vegan Burger Quesadilla

Vegan Burger Quesadillas

These vegan burger quesadillas are a great alternative way to use ready-made vegan burgers, and make a delicious and filling mid-week meal. All you need are a few of your favourite vegan burgers, some tortilla wraps and a few vegetables to get you going. You will need to use a plate to flip the quesadilla over while it is cooking to prevent the filling from spilling out all over the stove. I would recommend putting a little oil on the plate first, so that the quesadilla can easily slide back into the pan, otherwise it will stick.

Method:

Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the aubergine slices and onions for about 10 minutes, until browned. Chop up the burgers into small pieces and add those to the pan. Cook for 5 more minutes, stirring often. Now add the cherry tomatoes and the garlic and cook for a further 4 minutes or so, until the tomatoes start to soften.

Add the oregano, soy sauce, ketchup, lime juice, sriracha, chilli powder and paprika and stir through. You can also pour in a drop of water here if the mixture is looking a little dry. Cook for three more minutes, then transfer to a bowl.

Clean the pan and heat a drop of oil in it. Put 1 tortilla into the pan, spoon on ¼ of the burger mixture and spread it evenly across the surface. Sprinkle on ¼ of the grated cheese and then place another tortilla on top. Cook for 5 minutes on a medium-low heat, until the bottom is browned.

To flip the quesadilla over, rub a little oil onto a dinner plate and place it, face down, on top of the cooking tortilla. Now hold the plate firmly in place and gently flip the pan upside down, so that the quesadilla is now cooked side up on the plate. Put the pan back on the heat and gently slide the quesadilla back into it. Cook for another 5 minutes to brown the other side and melt the cheese.

Transfer the quesadilla to a baking tray and keep warm in a low oven while you cook the remaining three. Once they are all cooked, cut them into quarters and serve immediately.

Vegan Rock Cakes with Glace Cherries and Apricots

I don’t remember the last time I ate a rock cake. I do remember having them as a child, more than likely store bought as I can’t recall anybody making them for me. As a kid who grew up on Welsh cakes I always thought these were sort of similar. I liked the fact that

Rhubarb and Rose Posset

When rhubarb season comes around, it’s often difficult to know what to do with it that isn’t crumble. Those who grow their own can often find themselves with a glut that needs using up, but can only stomach so much crumble-topped stewed rhubarb before they are sick of the sight of it. Happily, with just
