I love quesadillas but generally think they are way too heavy and greasy so I came up with this yummy and somewhat lighter version, stuffed with mushrooms, onions, spinach and goat cheese, wrapped in Ezekiel sprouted whole grain wrap.
Really nice flavor combination. Give it a try!
Fresh ingredients are key and the process itself is quite easy.
Sauté mushrooms with onions, then once they are nice and soft mix them with spinach and cheese. Load up your tortillas, grill and voila!
