Whole Foods Market and SAVEUR are partnering with Blog Awards winners and finalists for In Good Company, a series of culinary exploits from discovering new beers and sparkling wines to meeting local farmers and foragers.

This week, we’re spotlighting Jessie Snyder winner of the SAVEUR Blog Awards Editor’s Choice Award for Best New Voice for her blog Faring Well, where you can find plant-based recipes and stories.

In her post An Adventure-Packed Quesadilla Jessie shares some of her tasty shortcuts for plant-based dishes:

I’m fully aware of the need for simple, quick meals after a long workout or outdoor adventure. Sometimes cooking from scratch is just not an option, and we all need those healthy go-to items to build a nourishing meal that will help our bodies recover and refuel.

The 365 Everyday Value® line as well as the Engine 2® Plant-Strong® items are some of my trusty favorites. The Engine 2® Brown Rice tortillas here are wonderful, packed with healthy ingredients such as brown rice, ground almonds, chia and flax seeds. These make for a delicious gluten free wrap or quesadilla.

Get Jessie’s recipe for Vegetarian Quesadilla With Sweet & Tangy Dipping Sauce, which as she explains, “isn’t your traditional quesadilla loaded with cheese.” Instead she substitutes in flavorful plant-based options, such as a creamy garlic hummus, peppery arugula and a sweet mustard sauce for a tangy-sweet bite.
