Avocado Quesadillas (Vegan!)

1/2 avocado, more if you prefer
1 small roma tomato, diced
1 green onion, sliced
2 tsp. nutritional yeast (I use this brand)
Seasonings of choice (I love smoked paprika, cumin, garlic powder, etc.)
Salsa (optional)
1 large tortilla (This can be a gluten-free recipe by simply selecting gluten free tortillas)

Note: All these ingredients can be found at Local Foods Market in Westminster.
Still want that cheesy flavor and texture? Try Lisanatti Foods almond cheddar or Daiya dairy and gluten free cheddar style shreds – both found in our dairy section.

Smash avocado and spread out on one half of the tortilla. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast and any seasonings. Add tomato, green onions, and salsa. (Or save the salsa for dipping!)
Fold over the top half of the tortilla, and place on a skillet over medium heat.
Heat for a few minutes on each side until warmed through.
