  • 4 Dempster's® Ancient Grains Large Tortillas
  • 1 can (19 oz) white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper
  • 1 ripe avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and sliced
  • 1 1/4 cups (300 mL) tomato salsa, divided
  • 4 thinly sliced red onion rounds, separated
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
  • 1 cup (250 mL) vegan sour cream, for serving


  1. Smash white beans with a potato masher.
  2. Stir in cilantro, lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper.
  3. Spread over half of each tortilla; top each with avocado slices, 1 tbsp (15 mL) salsa and red onion round.
  4. Fold the tortilla over to enclose the filling.
  5. Brush half of the oil over the bottom of a large skillet set over medium heat; in four batches, cook quesadillas for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until golden brown and the filling is heated through, brushing with remaining oil as needed.
