Tandoori Mushroom Quesadillas

Savory, rustic and earthy tandoori quesadillas.

These quesadillas are melt in your mouth, flavor bombs. Plus they’re loaded with nutrients thanks to the plantain tortillas (or any other grain free tortillas of your choice) and the mushrooms which are high in selenium (great for immune function) and Vitamin D. I love how the mushrooms get caramelized thanks to the delicious tandoori marinade, ideally cooked in a cast-iron skillet. The layers of the earthy mushrooms, tandoori seasoning, melted grass-fed cheese, and the fresh tortillas are everything you need and more. Don’t forget to dip these in my avocado cilantro chutney for the best pairing!
