200 gm Button mushrooms (chopped)
1 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 medium Tomato (diced)
1 can (15oz) Black beans, canned (drained, rinsed)
1 pinch Sea Salt (to taste)
1 dash Black pepper (to taste)
4 medium tortilla(s) Whole wheat tortilla
1/2 cup, shredded Cheddar cheese (or non-dairy cheese)
1 cup Baby spinach
1 tsp Chili garlic sauce (to taste)
4 spray (about 1/3 second) Olive oil cooking spray
1/3 cup Plain yogurt, 1- 2% M.F. (or non-dairy yogurt)
3 sprig Cilantro (coriander) (for garnish)


  1. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. 
  2. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring for 3–4 minutes or until golden. 
  3. Spoon in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, or until fragrant.
  4. Add the beans and tomato and cook for 1 minute or until heated through. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Spread mushroom mixture over half of a tortilla and top with cheese, spinach leaves, and chilli sauce to taste. Fold the tortilla over to enclose the filling. 
  6. Spray the quesadillas on both sides with spray cooking oil. Cook in batches in a sandwich press for 3 minutes or until the quesadillas are crisp and the cheese has melted. Alternatively, you can use a skillet over medium heat and cook on both sides for 3 minutes until the outside is golden and crispy. 
  7. Serve with a dollop of yogurt, garnished with cilantro (coriander).
