Every now and again I crave the cheesy crunch of a quesadilla! Unwilling to waste a full days calories on one meal, I swap some less than stellar for you fillings with some healthy ingredients and BOOM – guilt free comfort food!
This mixed mushroom quesadilla with wild spinach and goat cheese is around 350 calories, nutrient packed and oh so satisfying!!
All you need is a whole wheat tortilla, some goat cheese, mushrooms (I use shitake, crimini and oyster), spinach, onion, garlic and parsley. I stir fry the veggies ahead of time and get as much of the excess moisture out as possible (to prevent a soggy tortilla). Spread some cheese and parsley on one side of a whole wheat tortilla and spread a portion of your veggies on the other. Fold and bake in the oven at 400 for about 7 minutes (if you have a panini press or similar product by all means, use that instead!).
With a little bit of prep work, a quesadilla is a healthy, filling option – anytime!
Boasting protein, calcium, iron, low carbs and a whole host of vitamins and minerals, this delicious dilla is perfectly in line with a healthy diet and lifestyle!
Dive into a delicious dilla….enjoy!
