I always like to try vegan or vegetarian recipes to mix up my diet and balance my meat intake. Also meatless recipes are less expensive.
Beans and lentils are a great meat substitute for so many recipes. They are high in fiber and protein and help you stay full longer. I bought the fresh salsa from ALDI to make this recipe easy and quick. You can also make your own fresh salsa if you like.
What if I like a vegan recipe?
To make this 21 day fix black bean quesadilla recipe a vegan option simple leave out the cheese. As a substitute to cheese you can sprinkle on some nutritional yeast flakes, which is high in protein and B-vitamins.
