Mushroom Mozzarella Quesadillas

We've taken these quesadillas to an entirely new level by adding delicious portabella mushrooms and lots of gooey vegan mozzarella!

A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, about one tablespoon
8 ounces portabella mushrooms, thinly sliced
1/2 medium white onion, sliced thin
1 4-ounce can mild fire-roasted diced green chiles
1 large clove garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup dry white wine
4 standard-size whole wheat tortillas
4 ounces sliced or shredded vegan mozzarella cheese

If necessary, use a slightly damp cloth to wipe away any loose dirt or debris from the mushrooms, and thinly slice them.

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, onion, chiles, garlic, cumin, and sea salt.

Cook for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring often until the mushrooms are slightly tender. Stir in the wine and continue to cook until the liquid is absorbed. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.

In a separate skillet over medium heat, place one tortilla in the pan and cook for about 30 seconds. Turn the tortilla over and distribute a quarter of the cheese over one-half of the tortilla. Top the cheese with a quarter of the mushroom mixture. Use a spatula to fold the tortilla in half and enclose the filling. Continue to cook, turning once, until the cheese has melted and the tortilla is lightly crisp on both sides.

Repeat the process with the remaining ingredients. Cut the tortillas into wedges. Garnish with cilantro and red pepper flake. Serve with vegan sour cream, guacamole, fresh lime, and salsa if desired.
