Quesadilla with soy protein and Ssamjang

About The Recipe


In this unique fusion dish, the traditional quesadilla is given a Korean twist. The quesadillas are filled with seasoned soy protein, which provides a meaty texture and is a great plant-based protein source. The addition of Ssamjang, a flavorful Korean condiment, infuses the filling with a rich, savory taste. The quesadillas are cooked until the tortillas are crispy and the cheese inside is melted and gooey. This combination of Mexican and Korean flavors creates a delicious and satisfying meal, perfect for a quick lunch or a casual dinner.
