"Cheeseburger" Quesadillas


Plant-based quesadillas inspired by cheeseburgers make for a quick weeknight dinner that'll satisfy the whole family.


  • 8 ounces Pure Farmland® Simply Seasoned Plant-Based Protein Starters
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Cooking spray
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 (10 inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons Sliced dill pickles
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • ⅓ cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons pickle juice
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Sliced cherry tomatoes


  1. For the Quesadillas: Heat oil in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Add protein starters and cook until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  2. To the same pan, add onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes more. Add reserved protein starters back to the pan, add Worcestershire sauce, mix to combine, and set aside.
  3. Wipe out the pan, coat with nonstick spray, and heat over medium heat. Add 1 tortilla to pan. Top half the tortilla with 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 of the cooked protein.
  4. Top with pickle slices (if desired) and another 1/2 cup cheese. Fold in half and cook until cheese is melted and the quesadilla is golden brown on one side, about 2 minutes. Repeat with second tortilla and remaining ingredients.
  5. For the Special Sauce: Mix all ingredients in a small bowl and season to taste.
  6. Cut quesadillas into pieces and serve with lettuce, tomatoes, and sauce.
