Ha ha...I wasnt sure if this recipe was serious but its just like toasted vegemite and cheese - but on tortillas - so a lighter version.-27 Jan 2009(Review from this site AU | NZ)

Altered ingredient amounts.I didnt sandwich two tortillas together but spread the ingrediemts on half a single tortilla and folded it in half and then cooked each side in the frypan (no oil). Also added tomatoes for some fresh...they were very drippy in the eating and I'd suggest just sticking with the v&c and chilli!-27 Jan 2009(Review from this site AU | NZ)

Quesadillas are the perfect quick meal. Enjoy this vegetarian quesadilla recipe in under 10 minutes! Recipe yields 1 quesadilla (3 slices), so multiply as necessary.


  • 1 whole-grain flour tortilla (about 8″ diameter)
  • ½ cup freshly grated cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup cooked black beans or pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red bell pepper or jarred roasted bell pepper or a few thinly sliced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red onion or green onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pickled jalapeño (if you like heat)
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil, melted butter or extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
  • Any of the following, for serving: Salsa, pico de gallo, guacamole or strips of avocado, sour cream, hot sauce, chopped fresh cilantro…


  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Warm your tortilla for about 30 seconds, flipping halfway. Flip once more, then sprinkle one-half of the tortilla with about half of the cheese. Cover the cheese evenly with the remaining fillings: beans, bell pepper, onion and jalapeño (if using).
  2. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the fillings, and fold over the empty side of the tortilla to enclose the fillings. Quickly brush the top of the quesadilla with a light coating of oil, then carefully flip it with a spatula.
  3. Let the quesadilla cook until golden and crispy on the bottom, about 1 to 2 minutes, reducing the heat if necessary to prevent burning the tortilla. Brush the top with a light coating of oil, then flip it and cook until the second side is golden and crispy.
  4. Immediately remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the quesadilla to a cutting board. Let it cool for a minute to give the cheese time to set, then use a chef’s knife to slice it into 3 pieces. Serve promptly, with any sauces or garnishes that you’d like.


Change it up: Replace the fillings I used here with a handful of any of these options: raw or cooked chopped vegetables, sautéed greens, fresh leafy herbs, chopped olives or pepperoncini peppers, you name it.

Cheese notes: You can substitute any melty cheese (Monterey Jack, mozzarella, traditional Oaxaca—no need to grate the Oaxaca cheese) for the cheddar. You could also add crumbled feta or goat cheese, if you’d like.

Favorite tortilla brand: I love Stacey’s Organic, which doesn’t contain any crazy preservatives. I usually store them in the freezer so they last longer, and defrost individual tortillas as necessary.

Make a basic cheese quesadilla: Just skip all of the other fillings listed!

Make it gluten free: Use a certified gluten-free tortilla.

Make it vegan: Omit the cheese and spread ¼ cup cashew sour cream (see my cookbook, page 217) or hummus over the tortilla (check out these hummus quesadillas), and use oil instead of butter for brushing.

Storage suggestions: These quesadillas are at their crisp best right after making, but they will keep well for about 4 days in the refrigerator, covered. Gently reheat in the microwave or oven before serving, if desired.

The winning recipe: sticky stir-fried Marmite chicken (pictured above)

Adding a little Marmite to a sweet and sticky Chinese-style marinade gives this chicken dish a wonderfully beery flavour - as if you’ve just chucked in the most malty of dark ales. Perfect served with a bowl of steamed rice.

Serves 2-3
600g chicken breast, cut into chunks
Vegetable oil, for frying
1 red onion, roughly chopped
80ml water
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp oyster sauce
1 tsp Marmite
2 spring onions, very finely sliced, to serve
Sesame seeds, lightly toasted, to serve

For the marinade
2 tbsp Marmite
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp Shaoxing wine or dry sherry

1 Combine the marinade ingredients, then tip in the chicken pieces and stir well to ensure that all the chicken is coated. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

2 Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan. Gently fry the chopped onion with a pinch of salt for 15 minutes, until beginning to soften. Tip the onion into a bowl, leaving any oil in the pan. Set aside.

3 Remove the chicken pieces from the marinade, reserve the liquid. Turn the heat up and add a little more oil to the pan. Stir-fry the chicken until lightly browned all over. Tip the pieces into the bowl with the onion.

4 Add a dash of water to the pan and scrape up any cooked-on bits at the bottom of the pan. Bring to the boil. Add the reserved marinade and the rest of the liquid ingredients (honey, soy, oyster sauce and Marmite). Simmer for 3 minutes until the sauce has begun to reduce a little.

5 Add the chicken and onion simmer until completely cooked through. Serve with a sprinkling of spring onion and toasted sesame seeds.

Tips and Techniques

What is the best cheese for quesadillas? A blend of various cheeses should be used for best flavor. I highly recommend Mexican cheese blend or you can make your own blend of mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan, Romano, Asiago or any other cheese you like. Please note that freshly shredded cheese taste the best and also melts the best.

What type of tortillas to use? Soft corn or flour tortillas are best.

Watch the heat- They should crispy and golden brown on the outside and not burnt. Adjust the heat, as necessary and don’t cook on High heat.

Butter vs. Oil- Either can be used but I recommend butter since it has a richer flavor. Make sure you are using unsalted butter to keep this dish from becoming too salty.

Use nonstick pan– Because this prevents tortillas from burning and sticking to the pan.

How to reheat quesadillas? How to keep them warm? If you are not serving immediately, you can keep them warm in the oven in a baking pan on the lowest heat setting. You can reheat leftovers in the air fryer or on the pan over stovetop again, to regain its crispy texture.

Can you freeze quesadillas? Yes! These can be frozen for a quick and easy breakfast and snack at anytime. Prepare them, according to the recipe below and let them cool down. Then, wrap them in plastic wrap and freeze in an airtight container for up to 1 month. When you are ready to eat them, reheat in the microwave, toaster over or stovetop.
