Mushroom + Onion + Black Bean Quesadilla

On my list of budget friendly plant based foods, you will find the suggestion of a Mushroom and Onion quesadilla. This has become one of my favorite meatless meals because I absolutely love mushrooms and onion and putting them on a warm tortilla and pressing them into a quesadilla just makes them 10 times better! It’s a simple recipe and the seasonings can be adjusted as you please. So grab those mushrooms, onions, beans, and tortillas and let’s get cooking!


2 cups button mushrooms – rinsed and sliced

1 cup onion – diced

2 cloves of garlic – chopped

1 12oz-16 oz. can black beans – rinsed

2 Tablespoons olive oil (or 2 Tablespoons Margarine)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

2 tsp oregano

1 tsp cayenne (optional)

2 tsp thyme

8 – 10 tortillas (we used between 6” and 8” tortillas which were the fajita or soft taco size)

Optional Toppings:

Shredded cheese

Sour cream




  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.
  2. Add in garlic, onion, mushrooms, seasonings and cook over medium heat until onions are translucent and mushrooms are tender.
  3. Add in can of black beans and mix with mushroom and onion mixture until thoroughly heated (2-3 minutes).
  4. Fill the tortillas with the mushroom and onion filling with a little cheese and press them in a panini press for a tasty meatless quesadilla. You can also press them in the pan using a brick covered in foil to get the desired toasting on the tortilla…. or just serve over warm tortillas.
