Smoky Asparagus Quesadilla - Lunch in a Flash - vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, macrobiotic, recipes

 This combination of textures and flavors is what makes it a gourmet lunch you could serve guests or whip up for yourself any day.  It is even kid approved.

for gluten free folks - use rice wraps.  I used Rudi's Spelt wraps.  They're easy to find and freeze great.  Just take one from the freezer, and place in a dry fry pan over medium to medium-low heat.  Sprinkle half of the wrap with smoky paprika, lay your favorite cheese on top. (I like Follow Your Heart...) then steamed asparagus and fold the wrap over.  Place the lid on your pan and let it cook until golden brown (about 3 minutes) and flip and brown the other side. 

The soy cheese doesn't look like it is melted, but is perfectly gooey once you bite into it.

Pair your handheld with your favorite side salad.  This carrot slaw is dressed with a little turmeric and Follow Your Heart's Veganaise (far lighter than traditional mayo, but tastes great and is easy on your heart), plus a dab of raw honey.
