  1. In a large frying pan, in the spray oil, fry the veggie mince and all the chopped vegetables for 10 minutes on a medium heat, stirring regularly. Then add the seasoning and cook for a further 2 minutes, seasoning to taste.
  2. Add the cooked veg to a bowl and mix in the grated cheese.
  3. Add plenty of filling to half of a piece of Lo-Dough and fold over, as if making a toastie. Lightly wrap the whole thing in foil and place in a medium oven for approx. 20 minutes. Repeat for the second quesadilla.
  4. Take out from the foil, cut each quesadilla in half and serve alongside any accompaniments you like. Suggestions in description.
