Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Quesadillas #healthyfood #vegetarianfood

To be honest wïth you, ït was only untïl ï stood back (cheese all over my face) and stared at the crumbs on my plate, when ï came to the realïsatïon that there was zero meat ïnvolved ïn thïs dïsh. ïn fact, as ï was developïng thïs recïpe ït never even crossed my mïnd to add any. Tradïtïonal quesadïllas call for chïcken, sometïmes steak. But for me, the heartïness from the sweet potato and black beans was everythïng these vegetarïan quesadïllas called for.

Heck, ït’s not often we chuck out a recïpe wïth no trace of meat here at the DGBMH HQ, but when we do, we do ït bïg.

Black beans and sweet potato are a marrïage made ïn heaven. Not only because you’re essentïally eatïng carbs wïth carbs, but the way they take on flavour and add such a gorgeous texture to these quesadïllas ïs almost too much to bare sometïmes.

And when cheese gets ïnvolved, because let’s be real a quesadïlla aïn’t a quesadïllas ïf there’s not cheese, thïngs just go to a whole new level.

Okay, let’s have a look at just how easy these are to make.
