¼ cup tapioca starch

2 tbsp canola or olive oil, plus extra for tortillas
1 lb extra-firm tofu, drained and crumbled
3 tbsp agave
3 tbsp chili-garlic sauce
½ tsp sea salt

  1. *If you are not using a high-powered blender, such as a Vitamix, soak cashews overnight or boil cashews for 10 min. and drain. This will soften the cashews and ensure a silky smooth cream.
  2. To make the cashew cheeze: Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender until very smooth, about 2 min. Transfer to a small saucepan and whisk constantly over medium heat until thickened.
  3. To make the spicy tofu: In a medium saucepan, heat oil and crumbled tofu. Cook until tofu begins to brown, then add remaining ingredients.
  4. To assemble the quesadillas: Spread a layer of cashew cheese on half of a tortilla. Arrange spicy tofu, kimchi, sautéed spinach, and avocado on top of the cheeze. Fold the plain side of the tortilla over the side with the toppings to create a half-moon shape. Brush both sides of the quesadilla generously with oil.
  5. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook the quesadilla about 2 minutes on each side until lightly browned. Remove from pan and slice into 4 triangles to serve. Repeat assembly and cooking with remaining ingredients.
  6. To make this gluten free: use gluten-free tortillas!

    Cornstarch holds the key to crispiness! Tossing tofu in cornstarch and giving it a light coating helps it take on a truly crispy crust when pan-searing or frying.
