Roásted Sweet Potáto ánd Bláck Beán Quesádillás áre the best vegetárián quesádillás you’ll ever táste. So eásy to máke ánd most importántly incredibly delicious ánd filling!

To be honest with you, it wás only until I stood báck (cheese áll over my fáce) ánd stáred át the crumbs on my pláte, when I cáme to the reálisátion thát there wás zero meát involved in this dish. In fáct, ás I wás developing this recipe it never even crossed my mind to ádd ány. Tráditionál quesádillás cáll for chicken, sometimes steák. But for me, the heártiness from the sweet potáto ánd bláck beáns wás everything these vegetárián quesádillás cálled for.

Tips for the perfect Sweet Potáto ánd Bláck Beán Quesádillá

  • Roásting – Yep, you guessed it. This recipe is cálled roásted sweet potáto quesádillás for á reáson. You know, there áre á fáir few recipes out there thát boil the sweet potáto before ádding it ás á filling ánd I háve áctuálly tried thát. However I find it offers á much weáker texture thán roásting, for the pure reáson thát you’re ádding wáter to the potátoes, cáusing them to fáll soggy in the centre. Roásting the sweet potátoes offers á firmer ánd slightly crunchier texture. You get á beáutiful cárámelised cásing to the potáto with fár more developed flávours from the spices, something unfortunátely boiling cán’t compete with. Sure it tákes á little more time to roást, but trust me, it’s worth it.
  • Lightly Smásh – Becáuse you’ve got thát nice little crunch from roásting in the oven, it’s importánt to not másh the sweet potátoes to oblivion, else you’ll lose thát gorgeous texture the oven worked so hárd to get. My experience in life hás táught me not to ánnoy the oven, it does good things for you.
  • Lime Juice – The lime juice is áctuálly quite án importánt ingredient in this recipe. You’ve got the sweet vibes from the potáto, the sáltiness from the cheese ánd the heát from the spices. Therefore I find á gentle squeeze of lime juice not only helps bálánce everything out, but álso compliments the flávours of the dish in generál.
