Ready in 45 min­utes | Serves 4-6


220g brie, cold 2 Tbsp olive oil 450g mixed mush­rooms, thinly sliced 100g pick­led jalapeños, chopped ½ cup onion, finely chopped 1 tsp minced gar­lic ½ tsp salt ¼ tsp ground black pep­per 8 x medium (20cm) flour tor­tillas 2 Tbsp chopped flat-leaf pars­ley leaves MANGO & PA­PAYA SALSA 1 cup diced fresh mango 1 cup diced fresh pa­paya 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice 2 Tbsp chopped fresh co­rian­der 1 Tbsp finely chopped pick­led jalapeño or fresh green chilli ¼ tsp salt

1 Make the salsa first by com­bin­ing all the in­gre­di­ents in a small bowl. Set aside.

2 Cut the brie into 5mm-thick slices.

3 Heat oil in a large pan over medi­umhigh heat un­til hot. Add the mush­rooms and cook, stir­ring oc­ca­sion­ally, for about 2 min­utes then re­move 1 cup of mush­rooms and set aside. To re­main­ing mush­rooms, add the jalapeño, onion, gar­lic, salt and pep­per. Cook, stir­ring oc­ca­sion­ally, un­til mush­rooms are ten­der and liq­uid evap­o­rates. Re­move from heat.

4 Place a tor­tilla in a medium fry­ing pan over medium-high heat; spread a quar­ter of mush­room mix­ture over tor­tilla. In a sin­gle layer ar­range a quar­ter of the brie over the mush­rooms. Heat un­til cheese starts to melt (about 30 sec­onds). Cover with an­other tor­tilla, press­ing down lightly. Us­ing a large spat­ula, turn que­sadilla over and cook un­til cheese has melted. Trans­fer to a serv­ing plate and cover to keep warm. Re­peat with re­main­ing tor­tillas, brie and mix­ture.

5 Top que­sadil­las with warm, re­served mush­rooms and sprin­kle with chopped pars­ley. Cut into wedges and serve with the mango and pa­paya salsa.
