Veggie Queso-less Quesadilla

Here I go again, doing something in a tortilla. What can I say? That’s what I like. Readers may tire of seeing the same theme repeated but I never tire of enjoying the deliciousness.

Ingredients:

  • onions
  • garlic
  • red bell pepper
  • jalapeño
  • celery
  • mushrooms
  • corn

Mushrooms were dry sautéd in a pan rubbed with oil. When they stopped putting out moisture and the pan was dry again the cooking continued until they were nicely browned. The cooked mushrooms were set aside to be added back later into the dish. Dry sautéing mushrooms cooks the mushrooms in their own juices concentrating the flavor. It also gives the mushrooms a firmer texture.

The same pan in which the mushrooms were cooked was used to sauté onion, celery and peppers with avocado oil and kosher salt.

After a few minutes garlic was added and then zucchini.

Next, corn was added, a fajita seasoning Faye had put together was mixed in and the cooked mushrooms were added back into the pan.

A couple of folded tortillas were filled with the veggies and browned in a lightly sprayed pan.

My fermented green and red hot sauces and whatever commercial hot sauces and salsas are open are always brought out for meals like this.

  1. I’ve taken up your mushroom method! A great improvement! Now if we could just get the internet to cooperate! It has been troubling us mightily for a couple of weeks.

      1. We did, too. We’ve had it about ten days, and only in the last 12 hours has it seemed to have made any difference. It’s awful how integral a computer is to everyday living now!

      2. Indeed! When the internet goes down or the power goes out it is frustrating at first. It takes a minute or two to agree there are much better things to do anyway. Not so much for Faye since she relies on it for work.
