Ingredients
  • 1 large onion
  • 8 oz white mushrooms
  • 6 cups baby spinach
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 6-8 whole wheat tortillas
Instructions
  1. Thinly slice a large onion and white mushrooms. In a large skillet over medium heat, add 1 tbsp oil. Add the sliced onions and cook them until they are lightly caramelized. Add sliced mushrooms and cook until tender for about 5 minutes on medium heat. Add the spinach, little bit at a time and mix it until the spinach is wilted. Remove from heat.
  2. Heat a large griddle or pan on medium heat. Place a tortilla on the pan, apply little oil on both sides and cook for a minute, flipping with a spatula until the tortilla is hot. Spread a thin layer of the cooked veggies on the tortilla. Spread a layer of shredded cheese on top.

  3. Carefully place second tortilla on top of the cheese and press it gently with the spatula. Add few more drops of oil while pressing gently. Pressing will help the quesadilla stick together and should be easier to flip it over. Cook until both sides are nice and crispy golden brown and the cheese starts to melt! Gently put the quesadilla on a cutting board and cut into 4(more or less) slices using a pizza cutter.
  4. Serve with fresh guacamole and salsa.
