Mushroom Recipes
Spinach & Mushroom Quesadilla

2 tbsp canola oil
2 med. Red onions
8 oz button or cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
6 oz shredded spinach
8 flour tortillas
8 oz pepper Jack cheese

1. Preheat oven to 400o. In a 12-inch skillet over medium heat, warm 1 tbsp oil.
Cook onions, stirring occasionally, until lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Add
mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 6-8 minutes.
2. Add spinach in two batches, letting the first batch wilt slightly before adding
the next; cook until spinach is completely wilted and mixture is dry, 2 to 3
minutes total. Season with salt & pepper.
3. Brush one side of tortillas with remaining tbsp oil. Place 4 tortillas, oiled sides
down, on two baking sheets. Layer each tortilla with cheese, spinach mix, and
more cheese, dividing evenly. Top with remaining 4 tortillas, oiled sides up,
and lightly press to seal.
4. Bake until cheese has melted and tortillas are golden brown, turning them
once, about 10 minutes. To serve, cut in quarters.
