I prefer baking my quesadillas as it means I can do a few at once, as well as not needing to add more oil into the mix, but if you prefer you can cook them in a frypan or even under the grill.

These mushroom, zucchini & black bean quesadillas make a perfect light dinner or a delish weekend lunch option (or both!) and even better you can prepare the mushroom mix in advance and just cook the quesadillas as you need them. So good!

I like to serve mine with some of my go-to guacamole as well as a big pile of spinach, making it a filling, complete meal that is pretty darn healthy. This time I even used wholemeal tortillas so they score extra points on the health front!

      They’re so much easier than you’d think, particularly when you bake them!
