Spinach and Mushroom Quesadillas

We made these in class last night and I thought I’d share the recipe with you. These quesadillas are really good- made with a combination of Portobello mushrooms, spinach and cheese they are rich and packed with flavor. I just cooked them in a skillet for class but you could also bake them in the oven or brush with oil and cook them on the grill. We didn’t serve them with anything, but I could see having a fresh salsa on the side.

 

 

Spinach and Mushroom Quesadillas

1 (10 ounce) package chopped spinach
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, sliced
2 portobello mushroom caps, sliced                                                                                            salt and pepper to taste
4 (10 inch) flour tortillas
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Prepare spinach according to package directions. Drain and pat dry. Set aside.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in garlic and mushrooms, and cook about 5 minutes. Mix in spinach, and continue cooking 5 minutes. Place an equal amount of the mixture on one side of each tortilla. Top with equal amounts of cheese. Fold tortillas in half over the filling. Heat oil in a separate skillet over medium heat. Place quesadillas in the skillet, and cook 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges to serve.
