Vegan Cheese and Pesto Quesadillas

This super easy pesto quesadillas is not only vegan, it’s also incredibly delicious and loaded with melting cheesy textures and lots of pesto flavours. Think oozing cheese (vegan)  and basil pesto coming together inside a crispy, golden quesadilla. It’s mindblowingly delicious and so incredibly easy to make.

  • 2 Tortillas
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Basil Pesto
  • 1 tbsp Daia Plain Cream Cheese Style Spread
  • 1 slice Daia Cheddar Style Slices


  • Start by laying out your tortillas on a clean counter. Brush pesto generously onto one to the tortillas and spread the vegan cream cheese on top. Finally, lay 1 slice of vegan cheddar cheese on top and place the second tortilla on top, so you have a tortilla sandwich. 
  • Heat a grill or frying pan and brush the tortillas with olive oil on each side (I usually brush 1 side with oil and place that side down on the grill. Then I brush the other side of the quesadilla with olive oil right before turning it over).
  • Cook the quesadilla at medium high heat for around 2 minutes on each side or until the tortillas turn golden and crispy and the cheese starts to melt. 
    Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving. 


You can add any extra vegetable slices like tomatoes etc. plus fresh herbs to this recipe
