Caramelised Onion Quasidillas

No cheese, doesn’t need it. This will feed four twice (or eight right now), maybe three if you’re ravenous! Keep the rest for lunch tomorrow – keep the filling and tortillas separate and take five minutes to make a great meal.

Ingredients
8 wholemeal or multigrain tortillas
4 medium onions
2 large peppers (red or yellow)
4 tablespoons olive oil
200g aduki beans, soaked and boiled
100g cannelini beans, soaked and boiled
100g split peas
(Or replace the cannelini beans and split peas with chickpeas)
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon miso
1/2 mild chilli, sliced thinly
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Optional- vegan cheese (not necessary)

Salsa-
200g cherry tomatoes
Bunch of coriander
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 small chilli (to your taste)

Two really perfect avocados if you can get them

Method
Whizz up the cannelini beans and split peas with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1/2 a cup of water, the nutritional yeast, paprika and miso to make a houmous-textured paste.
Preheat the oven to 200c.
Slice the onions and the peppers thinly. Put the onions in a heavy pot with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Cook very slowly over the lowest flame for 30-45 minutes until dark and sweet.

Leave them alone as much as you can. If you’re pushed for time then you can throw the onion in with the aduki beans and peppers below.
Roast the aduki beans, chilli and the peppers for 30 minutes in the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Chop the tomatoes, the chilli and the coriander, mix with the rest of the salsa ingredients.
When you are ready to eat…
Heat a cast iron pan and lay out four tortillas, spread your ‘houmous’ over them and divide the peppers and beans, and the caramelised onions, into four little heaps.
Put one of the tortillas in the pan and add the onions, peppers and beans. Vegan cheese too if you want it, make sure it melts.
Put a plain tortilla on top and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes until the centre is quite hot, flip carefully and toast the other side for another 2 minutes.
Repeat with the other three quesadillas.
Cut into ‘pizza’ slices and serve with a dollop of salsa on top.
