When a simple and healthy meal is what you need, Vegetable Quesadillas are the right choice.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup of fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 4 cups of fresh spinach leaves, cut into stips
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 4, 10-inch flour or wheat tortillas
  • 4 ounces of shredded mozzarella or cheddar cheese (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup of salsa
  • 2 avocados, mashed (or use pre-packaged guacamole, about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup of light sour cream


  1. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add the mushrooms, onion, bell pepper, garlic and salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes.
  2. Reduce the heat to low and add the spinach. Cook for another 1-2 minutes (until the spinach is wilted). Remove from the heat and stir in the chopped cilantro.
  3. Put half the vegetable mixture on half of each tortilla. Sprinkle each with about 1/4 cup of the cheese and fold the tortillas over.
  4. Put the filled tortillas on a baking sheet. Broil for about 2 minutes and turn each tortilla over and broil another 1-2 minutes until golden brown and the cheese starts to melt.
  5. Sever the quesadillas with the salsa, avocado and sour cream.
