Swiss Chard & Maitake Mushroom Quesadillas With Gouda Goat Cheese
Pin recipe


  • 4 -5 Swiss Chard leaves steamed and cut into 1/1 in thick strips
  • 1 pound Maitake Mushrooms chopped
  • 1 sweet onion chopped
  • 4 black garlic cloves minced
  • 2 Tsp Coriander
  • 1/4 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • celtic salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
  • 1 small handful of cilantro minced
  • 1 cup grated Gouda goats cheese
  • 4 Siete grain-free tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil


  1. Add olive oil to the pan and add onions. cook until translucent.
  2. Add the mushrooms and season with salt & pepper, stirring once. Cover, and lower heat to med-low, cooking for 9-10 minutes. Set a timer, and uncover and stir at the halfway mark.
  3. Stir in the garlic, coriander, and red pepper. (The mushroom-onion mixture will be significantly reduced. If the pan appears to have some burn marks, do not worry as this happens a matter of course when mushrooms reduce down. They are not burned and you’ll notice that the pan deglazes as you continue to stir.) Stir/cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add the Swiss Chard and cover immediately to wilt. Cook covered just 1-2 minutes, then uncover and continue to cook, stirring regularly as the mixture continues to reduce, another 4-5 minute.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat, add the cider vinegar and stir to incorporate.
  6. After a few moments cooling, mix in cilantro.
  7. Set the tortillas on the prepared baking sheet and spread the filling over *one half* each tortilla, leaving a small border next to the edge. Top with shredded cheese.
  8. Fold the tortillas over, creating half-moons, to cover the filling. Brush the top half lightly with the oil.
  9. Bake at 450 for ten minutes or until tortillas being to brown, then, carefully flip them using a spatula. (After ten minutes in my oven, they were browned through but still needed a little cooking time on the flip side, so I killed the heat and baked three more minutes.)
  10. Remove quesadillas from heat and allow to cool on a wire rack 5-10 minutes.
  11. Cut each half-moon into four pieces and serve with dollops of Greek Yogurt (optional) , plus a sprinkle more cilantro.
