Here are our top picks when it comes to vegetarian dinner recipes! These meatless meals please everyone around the table.


  • ½ cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 drizzle olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon each cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and kosher salt

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup smoked mozzarella cheese

  2. Drain the rinse the beans, then mix them with the olive oil and seasonings. Thinly slice the green onion.
  3. Brush a baking sheet with a bit of olive oil. Place the tortillas on the sheet and rub them to coat them in olive oil.
  4. On each tortilla, place 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese, 1 tablespoon seasoned beans, 1 tablespoon green onion, 2 tablespoons smoked mozzarella, 1 tablespoon pico de gallo, and 1 pinch kosher salt. If desired, add a drizzle of hot sauce. Fold over the tortilla into a half circle (this makes it easy to flip, instead of making full quesadillas with 2 tortillas). Complete for each tortilla, then brush the tops with oil.
