Ingredients

  • 2 large portobello mushrooms (stem and gills removed)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 8 cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  • Slice mushrooms into meaty strips, approximately ½" thick, and add to a large bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  • Place mushrooms in large skillet set over medium heat. Cook until tender, then add balsamic vinegar, stir to coat, and remove from skillet.
  • Add tomatoes and cook for approximately two minutes, or until tomatoes are heated through and blistering.
  • Remove tomatoes from skillet and add spinach. Cook spinach for 30 seconds, or until it is wilted. Remove from skillet.
  • Assemble the quesadillas by adding half of the mushrooms, tomatoes, and spinach to each tortilla. Top each quesadilla with ½ cup of shredded cheese and fold shut.
