tofu quesadilla with cheese

This tofu quesadilla recipe is packed with great flavors, and only takes a few minutes to prepare.

This tofu quesadilla recipe is made easy with Campbell’s Cheddar Cheese Soup. It holds together well (though you will want a plate under it to catch any drips)!

The tofu absorbs the flavors of the cheese Campbell’s soup, veggies and salsa.

Even better, the kids adore this recipe! They each ate about twice what I thought they would (yay for that!), and then asked for it again in their lunches the next day. I call that a win!

These are also good because they’re fast and easy to make.

I love to eat well, but I also don’t always (ummm… make that never ….) love standing in the kitchen for hours chopping veggies and standing in front of the stove.  This recipe is great for quick weeknight dinners with the kids: it only takes about ten minutes to prepare, and 25 minutes to cook. It’s a great choice if you love vegetarian foods like no boil vegetarian lasagna, or mung bean soup or vegatarian and vegan foods that taste like meat.

Tofu Quesadilla Recipe with Campbell’s Cheddar Cheese Soup

To cut calories, without sacrificing any taste, I love the CAMPBELL’S® Healthy Request condensed cheddar cheese soup. It tastes almost identical to the original version!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Take a non-stick skillet, and heat oil over medium. Add peppers, onion, and chili powder and cook for 5 minutes, or until brown. Add tofu, salsa, and soup.
  2. Cook for five minutes until peppers are tender.
  3. Remove from heat, and stir in green onions.
  4. Spread a quarter of the filling over one tortilla, and fold over, with the filling inside. Repeat with the other tortillas.
  5. Spray a 2nd, clean non-stick frying pan. Place on medium heat. Cook quesadillas for three minutes a side, or until a lovely golden brown.
  6. Remove from pan, cool two minutes, and cut into wedges.
  7. Serve with sour cream and more salsa.

Enjoy!

Want more zing?

Add a dash of hot sauce to the veggie, soup and tofu mix when cooking! We love Tabasco scorpion sauce!

This recipe is based on a Cheese Chicken quesadilla recipe from Campbell’s.
