I subscribe to emails from Russell James the Raw Chef, partly because he is freaking adorable but, also because his recipes always look phenomenal. Most of the time, when I get his recipe emails, I bookmark them and tell myself that I’ll make them later; then I forget and they never see the light of day in my kitchen. Alas, I saw this spectacular recipe for a Falafel & Hummus Wrap and it immediately stuck out to me. I HAD to make this! Well, at least the wrap part. 😉

And so I did! Maybe a little too thin because they started to crumble a little bit, so this raw quesadilla recipe definitely makes 2 large “tortillas”, and it’s so easy to make! I ended up adding a some sprouted lentils and the outcome was very delicious, especially paired with the garlic-y cashew cheese spread. This is a great, healthy alternative to the standard quesadilla (although I love those tremendously), and involves pretty basic ingredients.

Ingredients

For the Tortillas:

  • 2 1/2 Cups Zucchini Peeled & Chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Sprouted Lentils
  • 3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp. Ground Coriander
  • Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Ground Flaxseed Meal

Ingredients for Cashew Cheese (Makes large portion, good for dipping veggies in!) :

  • 2 Cups Raw Cashews Soaked for 2-8 hours
  • 3/4 Cup Water
  • 1/4 Cup Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt

Instructions

  • For the tortillas: Place all ingredients, but the flaxseed, into a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until pureed. Add in ground flaxseed and pulse until mixed in.
  • Spread batter onto two dehydrator trays with Paraflexx sheets into large circles that are close to an 1/8"-1/4" thick. Dehydrate at 105℉ for 8 hours, then when you are able to take them off of the sheets flip them over and dehydrate for an additional 30-60 minutes. Do not over dry, or else they won't be pliable and will turn into yummy crackers. 😉
  • For the cashew cheese: Place all ingredients in high-speed blender or food processor and puree until smooth, with maybe little chunks so that it's not too creamy. Proceed to spread on EVERYTHING! 🙂

Notes

For the veggies inside, I dehydrated some tomatoes for a couple of hours and cut up some fresh bell pepper. Even though it was a little messy to eat by hand, it was SO worth it. I will definitely be making these tortillas again! So, happy Raw Wednesday everyone, I hope that you had a great one!

So, enjoy this innovative raw quesadilla shamelessly!

ALSO, congrats to Anni in New York for winning the Vegan MOFO giveaway! I hope that you seriously enjoy that little box of goodies, I definitely contemplated keeping it all for myself. 😉

    • Have patience with dehydrating and play around with the veggie filling! Otherwise, it’s pretty easy to make, just takes a little time. 🙂

        • You can refrigerate them, but you may want to refrigerate the tortillas and cashew cheese separately. The cashew cheese will thicken up once it chills.

  2. this sounds so good . . . i will have to make tiny tortilla cuz i have a Nesco dehydrator . . . but i love my Nesco despite its awkward shape. thanks for the recipe, i will add it to my Dehydrator Recipes To Do list that is forever growing.
