The Daiya Pepperjack Has Landed

Know what that means? 
Quesadillas!


I pre-cooked the cheesy holy trinity: peppers, onions & mushrooms.  Then, I lightly sprayed both sides of the tortillas with olive oil and filled them with cheese, toppings, cheese, and more cheese.  I baked them on a baking sheet at 375 degrees for ten minutes on each side, which gave me enough time to whip up some fresh salsa.  Quarter them with a pizza cutter and enjoy!


I've never tried pepperjack cheese before; I was impressed.  The company describes it as "smooth and slightly spicy" and I concur.  It was very good and completely different than the cheddar and mozzarella Daiya varieties.  More cheesy options than a vegan could hope for!


Because I'm not familiar with pepperjack, I'm having trouble finding its place in my mental recipe index, but don't worry; I'll find a way.


In the meantime, though, I have plenty of cheddar and mozzarella to tide me over.


Thank you for existing, Daiya (and Pangea for selling you in bulk)!

  1. That looks really great. Peppers and mushrooms make everything better. I have yet to try Daiya but I love spicy foods - I think I would like this flavor.
