Vegan Folded Breakfast Quesadilla











If there is one thing I’ve come to embrace, it’s food trends. A lot of times they come and go, but there are a few that stick around and really hold up. One of those, is folded quesadillas! I don’t know about you, but I’m all about white tortillas and anything quesadilla inspired. Believe it or not, I even own a quesadilla maker lol, I’ve just never used it. (I think I’ve had it for a few years)


While I’ve yet to use the quesadilla maker, there was something about this folded concept that I just had to try. Visually it was stimulating, I liked how the ingredients were placed, and being folded it was honestly easier to eat. If you put vegan nacho cheese on a quesadilla using 2 tortillas, it just wouldn’t hold together. I love this method as it’s just compacted and you tap into all the flavors with each bite. Bonus, each bite is crunchy!


If like me you were waiting to jump on the folded quesadilla train, don’t wait… You have to try this concept!


So when thinking of the next best folded quesadilla concept, I knew we had to explore a breakfast one! I personally loved even the standard quesadilla version of this concept as it’s so filling and you can make them as veggie packed as you like. I love to do a vegan egg, but you can use a standard egg, avocado, a fun salsa, and faux bacon. The options for fillers are endless leaving you never getting bored with this folded concept. 


Don’t like white tortillas?

Use whichever tortillas you like!  Keto, gluten free etc. 






What’s great about the folded quesadilla? It’s quick, easy, affordable, filling, you can make it as veggie packed as you like, I pack mine with multiple textures and flavor profiles, it’s perfect for any season, great for entertaining, once cooked the tortilla stays firm and doesn’t get soggy, great even for on the go, you can switch up the veggies and even pair it with a dipping sauce if desired!



If there is one food trend that’s worth your time, it’s this! You have to try this vegan Folded  Breakfast Quesadilla!







Why this recipe is great: 








Veggie packed and you can add more 

Perfect for any season 

Makes it easier to capture all the flavors in a single bite!

You can add my staple vegan nacho cheese
