Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 large Onion sliced
  • 3 tsp Brown Sugar
  • 80 ml Balsamic Vinegar
  • 20 g Unsalted Butter
  • 3 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 4 Portobello Mushrooms sliced
  • 8 Tortillas
  • 200 g Cheddar grated
  • Handful Rocket Leaves

Chipotle Jam

  • 2-3 Chipotle Chillies deseeded and chopped
  • 500 g Pasata
  • 4 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 230 ml White Wine Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar

Instructions

  • Make the chipotle jam. Place the chipotle chillies, pasata, garlic, white wine vinegar and brown sugar into a small saucepan over a medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and simmer for half an hour while you make the quesadillas. The leftovers will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for a few weeks.
  • For the caramelised onions heat a tbsp of oil over a medium heat and add the onions. Cook for 10 minutes until they are soft then add the vinegar and sugar, cooking for another 5 minutes until they're caramelised. Remove from the heat and tip onto a plate.
  • Place the pan back on the heat and melt the butter. Add the mushrooms and garlic to the pan and cook for a few minutes until softened. Remove from the heat.
  • Assemble the quesadillas. Top one tortilla with a quarter of the onions, mushrooms, cheese and rocket. Add another tortilla. Heat a dry pan over a medium-high heat and place the quesadilla carefully into the pan. Cook for a few times and then flip and cook the other side until they're browned. Repeat with the rest of the quesadillas. Serve with the chipotle jam and any other toppings.
