Beef Broccoli Pizza Quesadillas {Vegetarian}

Day 321.

Pizzadillas! Woo! This one's a special treat for the kids, who love tortillas, broccoli and pizza to an almost inexplicable degree. Today, I've managed to combine all three in a Beef Broccoli Pizzadilla. This is another recipe that's easy to veganize with Daiya cheese.

Beef Broccoli Pizzadillas
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup broccoli florets, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Lentil and Rice Ground Beef Substitute 
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 8 small tortillas
  • 1/4 cup marinara sauce, plus more for dipping, if desired
  • 1 cup cheese, shredded (I used a mix of Mozzarella and cheddar)

Directions
Combine broccoli, beef and Italian seasoning in a small bowl. Heat a griddle or pan over medium heat. Place 4 tortillas on the griddle and spread 1 tablespoon sauce over each tortilla. Top with about 2 tablespoons cheese each and a quarter of the beef-broccoli mix.Top with remaining cheese and tortillas. Grill for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until cheese is melted and tortilla is crisped to desired amount.

Slice into quarters or eighths with a pizza cutter and serve with additional sauce for dipping

The Results
My husband and I loved these, and he was pretty skeptical before trying them. The kids went pretty crazy for them.
