Mushroom quesadillas
Serves 5
10 flour tortillas (10-inch diameter)
500g white button mushrooms, sliced
100g onion, sliced
50g parsley, chopped
600g Gouda, grated
60ml olive oil
For guacamole
5 ripe avocados
100g white onion, diced
150g tomato, diced
2 green chillies, chopped
50g fresh coriander, chopped
3 tbsp lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
To make the quesadillas: In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat olive oil and add the sliced onions and mushrooms. Season with a little salt and pepper and a dash of lemon juice. Sauté lightly till soft, but don’t brown them.
Heat a skillet over low flame and lightly toast the tortillas. Cover the tortillas with grated cheese and top up half of them with a thin layer of mushroom mixture. Toast the tortillas and when the cheese starts to melt cover the ones with sautéed mushrooms with the ones with only cheese. Press lightly with a spatula and continue toasting till golden brown on both sides. Remove from fire, cut into wedges and serve hot with guacamole.
To make the guacamole: Cut the avocados in half, remove the stones and scrape the pulp from the shell. Mash the pulp well with a fork. Fold in the diced onions, tomatoes, coriander and chillies. Add a little lemon juice and mix well together. Season with salt and pepper.
