Vegetarian Quesadillas

My mom said amazing combination of flavors. She never would have thought to put those together!! We made this for our weekly Vegan meal with my mom to support her in her vegan journey! They were awesome! The sweet potato really stole the show but was not too sweet! Of course we used vegan cheese and butter but the taste of the veggies were to die for. This will definitely be a regular meal in our book!!!
