These gluten free turkey quesadillas are an easy lunch option for busy days! Filled with sweet potatoes, spinach, and dairy free cheese, this is a family friendly meal you’ll love.
Do you find it’s hard to get enough veggies into your kids? We have gone through different phases in our house with our kids. I’ve had to sneak veggies into desserts, like these double chocolate fudge cookies.
And sometimes they’ve welcomed veggies that aren’t hidden, like in these gluten free turkey quesadillas.
This is a simple meal that’s perfect for busy weeks. You can customize these quesadillas to suit your tastes. If you aren’t fond of turkey, try ham or roast beef. You can leave the meat out if you like. Just use more sweet potatoes instead. And if you don’t need to be dairy free, go ahead and use your favorite dairy cheese!
These gluten free turkey quesadillas are a great way to use up leftover mashed sweet potatoes. Or you can just microwave a sweet potato quickly before making these quesadillas. And if you need to sneak more veggies in here, you can do that! A little broccoli, or some mushrooms would be a nice addition.

Gluten Free Turkey Quesadillas with Spinach and Sweet Potatoes.

For each quesadilla:
- 1 Tablespoon vegan buttery spread

- ⅓ cup fresh spinach
- ¼ cup vegan cheese I used Daiya Jalapeno Havarti
Place the vegan buttery spread in a frying pan, and melt over medium heat until it sizzles. Add the gluten free quesadilla.
Spread the mashed sweet potatoes on half of the quesadilla. Add the turkey slices, spinach, and dairy free cheese. Fold the quesadilla over.
Cook for a few minutes to brown, then carefully flip the quesadilla and cook for a few more minutes until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is golden brown.
Slice and half and serve! Repeat as needed for more quesadillas.
