Hoff's Easy Quesadillas

Hoff's Easy Quesadillas
Servings: 12 Quesadillas
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free, gluten-free

  • 16 oz. can fat-free vegetarian Re-fried Beans
  • 24 Corn Tortillas
  • Nutritional Yeast
  1. Spread Beans onto Corn Tortilla
  2. Sprinkle with Nutritional Yeast
  3. Place another Corn Tortilla on top
  4. Heat through using a non-stick pan over medium-high heat, flipping once one side is browned
  5. Serve with Salsa

Hoff Thoughts: Personally, I use a Cuisinart Griddler for this, it's quicker and I love the little grill marks.  I also don't consumer 12 of these at a time, it's a bit much; but that's how much one can of Beans provides.  I'd say 4-6 Quesadillas per person gets the job done for one sitting and refrigerate the rest of the Beans for another meal.

    Hoff's Raw "Alfredo" Sauce

    Hoff's Raw "Alfredo" Sauce
    Yields: About 3 Cups
    meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free, gluten-free

    • 2 cups Cauliflower Rice
    • 1 cup Water
    • Juice from 1/2 Lemon
    • 1 clove of Garlic
    • 2 tbsp. Hemp Seed
    • 1 tsp. Onion Powder
    • 1 tsp. Sea Salt
    • Pinch of Nutmeg
    • Pepper to taste

    1. Using a Vitamix, blend all ingredients together 3-4 minutes to heat through
    2. Serve over pasta, veggies, etc. 

    Hoff Thoughts: When eating raw, food should not exceed 118 degrees.  A Vitamix should raise the temperature of food 10 degrees every minute it is run. However, my Vitamix runs hotter; it's a good practice to use a meat thermometer to test how hot this sauce gets based on how long you run your machine.  Three minutes for me = 115 degrees.
