  • small saucepan
  • flat cast iron griddle, cast iron skillet, or other heavy bottomed skillet


  • 8 gluten-free tortillas, such as Siete brand's almond tortillas or homemade cassava flour tortillas
  • 1 16-ounce can salt-free refried pinto or black beans, or homemade (you'll have some leftover)
  • 4 ounces dairy-free cheese, such as Miyoko's Vegan Mozzarella, grated
  • 4 roasted red peppers, cut into strips


  • Warm up the refried beans in a small saucepan. In the meantime, warm up the griddle/skillet over low heat.
  • Once the beans and pan are warmed up, spread a goodly amount of beans on one tortilla. Evenly cover the beans with a generous layer of grated cheese (about 1 ounce), then arrange roasted red pepper strips on top. Cover with another tortilla.
  • Put the quesadilla onto the pan and turn the heat up to medium/high. Cook until the first side is golden, then flip and cook the second side until golden and the cheese is melted.
  • Transfer the quesadilla to a cutting board and let it cool for about a minute, then cut into quarters using a pizza cutter or knife.
  • Repeat this process to make the rest of the quesadillas.
