These Grilled Summer Vegetable Quesadillas are an easy, healthy, and delicious vegetarian lunch or dinner and a great way to use up Summer’s fresh produce!
Loaded with grilled fresh peppers, onions, and mushrooms, then filled with a blend of melted mozzarella and pepperjack cheese, these Grilled Summer Vegetable Quesadillas are a surefire solution to your meatless Monday dinnertime fix!
I love having super satisfying meatless meal ideas in my backpocket for Meatless Mondays, like these Grilled Summer Vegetable Quesadillas or my favorite Vegetarian Swiss Chard & Pinto Bean Burritos that I posted about not too long ago. This is another one of those “you-will-not-miss-the-meat” kind of meals that are so totally filling that even carnivores like the ones who reside at our house will be sated.
When I was a student in the business program back at BYU, there was a little cafe-type area set up in the Tanner Building that sold veggie quesadillas. This was ages ago (embarassingly) and my memory is fuzzy now about what exactly went into those quesadillas other than lots of peppers that weren’t chopped up so that when you took a bite much of the filling would slide out, but I definitely remember loving them and ordering them all the time. The Tanner Building has been expanding and remodeled since I was in the Marriott School of Management there and there is a new eatery that serves a different menu now, but I still think about those delicious quesadillas that got me through many a long day of studying!
These are loaded, and I mean seriously loaded, with zucchini, yellow summer squash, red onion, red (or orange or yellow) bell pepper, anaheim pepper (if you feel up for even more peppers!), grilled portobello mushrooms, and asparagus. And I fixed the problem of having the insides slide out of the quesadillas by chopping the veggies into bite-size pieces.
Of course they are super customizable if you have other veggies you want to swap in or out! Toss a handful of spring greens or arugula into the mix. Add more or less cheese! Do all pepperjack or all mozzarella! Whole wheat tortillas or good old flour. It’s totally up to you. We are talking quesadillas here and I’m not gonna’ judge. Just go with whatever if fresh, seasonal, and delicious looking at the store or farmer’s market.
