Method

  • Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium–high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring, for 3–4 minutes or until golden.
  • Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  • Add the beans and tomato and cook for 1 minute or until heated through. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.
  • Preheat a sandwich press. Spread a quarter of the mushroom mixture over half of a tortilla. Top with a quarter of the cheese, a quarter of the spinach leaves, and chilli sauce to taste. Fold the tortilla over to enclose the filling. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and fillings.
  • Spray the quesadillas on both sides with oil. Cook in batches in the sandwich press for 3 minutes or until the quesadillas are crisp and the cheese has melted. (Alternatively cook the quesadillas in a large non-stick frying pan for 2 minutes each side.)
  • Serve with a dollop of yoghurt, garnished with coriander.
