Hello & Happy Wednesday!!






Everyone has their random foodie cravings that they gravitate towards. my personal favorite is quesadillas! (I even have a quesadilla maker lol) I find them easy, typically cheesy, great for travel, and the options are just endless in terms of what you can pack it with and what sauce you’d like to pair it with.


If you love quesadillas too, then I love you already!


While brainstorming for the perfect quesadilla combo it dawned on me to break away from the typical combinations and create a grilled bbq concept. Having received the newly released MorningStar Farms® Veggie Pulled Pork and peach season still in full swing, this recipe for vegan Peach Bbq Pulled Pork Quesadillas was a no brainer!


In addition to my love for quesadillas, I have an affinity for grilling, ..everything! It could be summer, fall, winter, or spring, everything tastes better grilled. (promise)


Years ago I would have thought that a homemade bbq sauce had to be a long drawn out process however.. it’s so easy you could do it with one eye open, hoping on one foot and liking someones redundant smoothing bowl pictures on instagram lol 










What I love about this dish is how effortless it is! It’s affordable, involves a handful of ingredients, you can switch up the “meat” of the quesadilla to be jackfruit, carrots, zucchini or whatever you’re craving, use a different fruit for the sauce, it packs flavor, a hint of heat, a hint of sweet, is great for entertaining bc you can easily slice and serve them, is perf for any season, and non vegan approved!




If you’re searching for a seamless modern vegan concept that won’t leave your tastebuds bored for Labor Day Weekend or your next home tailgating party, you need to try this recipe for vegan Peach Bbq “Pork” Quesadillas!!


Doesn’t sound good?!

You have to grill it to believe it!!








MorningStar Farms® Veggie Dogs are also a perf grilling options. Find both at your local Walmart!
