If you’re a fan of mushrooms, you’re in luck! This quesadilla is made with tender, meaty mushrooms, creamy white beans, and melted fontina cheese. The fontina is buttery and salty with a slight nuttiness that pairs perfectly with the fresh, earthy flavors of the mushrooms. Caramelized shallots add rich depth to the cream dipping sauce and the fresh dill adds a bright herbaceous flavor. Definitely not your average quesadilla.

Please read entire recipe card before beginning.
Place a medium sauté pan over high heat and add olive oil, shallots and a pinch of salt. Cook on high for 4-5 minutes, turn down to low and cook for 15-20 minutes while occasionally stirring and scraping the pan so shallots don’t burn. Once the shallots have browned, stir in half the lemon juice then cook for another 2 minutes until all moisture is gone. Set aside to cool.
While the shallots are browning, place a large sauté pan over high heat and add olive oil, mushrooms. Cook the mushrooms for 7-8 minutes until they have browned.
Combine the cooked mushrooms, white beans, lemon zest, fontina cheese, and parsley in a large mixing bowl. Season to taste with Peachdish salt and pepper, mix thoroughly.
Wipe out the large saute pan, then place over medium-low heat. Place a tortilla in the pan and add the vegetable mixture to one side of the tortilla, fold the other half over, cook for 1-2 minutes and then flip. The quesadilla is ready when both sides are lightly browned and the cheese is melted. Repeat with the other 3 tortillas.
Once the shallots have fully cooled, transfer to a small mixing bowl with the sour cream, chopped dill, remaining lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper, mix thoroughly to combine.
Cut the quesadillas into thirds so that each person gets 6 pieces. Serve with the sour cream on the side and enjoy!
