Ingredients

For 4

You will need...

  • 1-2 aubergines, sliced into 1 cm rounds
  • olive oil, for drizzling (plus more for frying)
  • salt & pepper
  • 250 g brown mushrooms, sliced
  • at least 8 medium size flour tortillas
  • 2 cups mature cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
  • 1 head of baby gem lettuce, shredded
  • 1-2 cups wild rocket
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 30-45 ml milk

Mushroom, aubergine & cheese quesadillas with rocket & lettuce slaw Method

  1. Arrange the aubergines on a large baking tray brushed with oil, then drizzle all over with more oil and season with salt & pepper. Roast in a preheated oven at 220 C for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside.
  2. While the aubergines are roasting, heat about 30 ml olive oil in a large wide pan and fry the mushrooms until cooked and brown. Season with salt & pepper and set aside.
  3. Assemble the tortillas: place some cheese on a tortilla, then top with roasted aubergines & fried mushrooms. Top with more cheese, then cover with another tortilla and press gently to compress. Fry in a hot, dry pan on both sides until slightly charred and the cheese have melted. Slice and serve at once, with the slaw on the side.
  4. For the slaw: place the lettuce and rocket in a mixing bowl. Mix the mayonnaise with the milk to create a slightly runnier mayo sauce. Pour over the leaves and toss to coat.
