Samosadillas – Samosa Quesadilla


This samosa-quesadilla hybrid is from Vegan Unplugged. Like all the recipes in Vegan Unplugged, this was easily adapted for when you do have electrical power and fresh food, and can be prepared very quickly (less than 15 minutes!), but either don’t have time or don’t feel like cooking. Instead of using all pantry ingredients, you simply use fresh where you can.

These make a great lunches or snacks served with your favorite chutney or a jarred tamarind sauce. If you don’t have chutney on hand, you can make a tasty facsimile by combining a few tablespoons of peach jam with a teaspoon or two of cider vinegar, a few raisins, some red pepper flakes, and a little ginger.
