Meat-Free Mondays: Quick Quesadillas

March 18, 2013

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.

What’s your go-to quick weeknight dinner?
