Mushroom Quesadillas

Serves: 2

Preparation: 5 minutes

Cooking: 5-10 minutes



2 handfuls of mushrooms, wiped clean and sliced (we used mixed varieties)
½ red chilli, finely diced
1 clove garlic, crushed, finely diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 tortillas
2 handfuls spinach
Cheese for sprinkling
Sprigs of fresh oregano or thyme


Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat. Sautéthe mushrooms with the chilli and garlic until cooked

Place two tortillas on a flat board. Arrange the mushroom mixture to cover each tortilla, place the spinach over the mushrooms and sprinkle with cheese. Cover with the remaining two tortillas 

In a clean pan over a medium heat, cook the quesadillas for a few minutes each side until the cheese has melted and the tortillas are golden

Garnish with sprigs of fresh oregano or thyme (or herbs of choice) 

These make a great lunch or dinner served with a green salad
