Easy Mushroom and Onion Quesadillas

We live in Texas, so there is no shortage to Tex Mex foods.  However, most of the restaurants are not healthy or vegan.  Ever since we made our dairy free cashew cheese sauce, we have been experimenting with different ways to use it.  First there was the vegan grilled cheese and then the vegan nachos.  Now vegan quesadillas.

Vegan Quesadillas - My Whole Food Life

I used Food for Life corn tortillas.  They are gluten free and non GMO.  They were perfect for this recipe.  I supposed you could also use homemade tortillas.  We all loved this recipe and it smells amazing when it’s cooking!  If you are not vegan, please feel free to add in whatever cheese you like instead of the cheese sauce. I am sure that would probably be okay as well.

Homemade Coconut Milk

If you look at coconut milk in the store, you will notice that pretty much every brand contains carrageenan.  Even the organic brands.  So the only other option is to make it yourself.  The good news is that homemade coconut milk is so easy to do.  It only takes a few minutes.  The best part about homemade coconut milk is that you can flavor it however you like.  I like to add a couple dates for sweetness, but you can also add in some chocolate for a sweeter treat. :)  This homemade coconut milk would be great in my coconut vanilla chia pudding or my raspberry coconut smoothie.
