Meat-Free Mondays: Quick Quesadillas
Quick quesadillas make a great weeknight dinner – kids love them as an alternative to pizza. Top with your favourite salsa and serve with salad.
1 zucchini, grated
Handful mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 spring onions, thinly sliced
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
125g shredded sharp cheddar cheese
8 small flour tortillas (look for wholemeal tortillas for a healthier choice)
Handful chopped fresh coriander
1. Combine the grated zucchini, sliced mushrooms, cumin, spring onions, black beans and cheese in a bowl and mix. Add salt to taste.
2. Heat a frying pan bigger than the tortillas over medium heat and add a little olive oil. When hot, add one tortilla, spread with 1/4 of the filling, then place another tortilla on top. Press down slightly with a spatula.
3. Cook for 1-2 minutes, then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes until lightly golden and crispy.
4. Cut into wedges, and top with salsa and serve with a salsa.
