- 8 small flour tortillas
- 2 cups (60 grams) fresh spinach leaves, chopped
- 1 cup (150 grams) mushrooms, sliced
- 1 small onion, thinly sliced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
- 1 teaspoon (5 grams) cumin powder
- 1 teaspoon (5 grams) paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup (120 grams) vegan cheese, shredded
- Optional toppings: salsa, guacamole, vegan sour cream
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced onion and minced garlic, sauté until the onion becomes translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
- Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they start to soften and release their moisture, about 5 minutes.
- Stir in the chopped spinach leaves and cook until wilted, about 2-3 minutes. Season with cumin powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine all the flavors.
- Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside.
- Place a tortilla on a clean surface and sprinkle a handful of vegan cheese evenly over half of the tortilla. Spoon a generous amount of the spinach and mushroom mixture on top of the cheese.
- Fold the tortilla in half, pressing gently to seal the filling inside.
- Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas and filling.
- Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Place one or two quesadillas in the skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.
- Remove the quesadillas from the skillet and cut them into halves or quarters.
- Serve the Spinach and Mushroom Quesadillas hot with your favorite toppings such as salsa, guacamole, or vegan sour cream.
