Portobello and Black Bean Quesadillas

Sautéed portobellos are delicious in ragouts; as a topping for polenta or pizza; or as a filling for fajitas, tacos, or quesadillas. The portobello mushroom stands up to the robust flavors in these quesadillas, all the while preserving its own steaklike texture.

Prep: 1 minute; Cook: 14 minutes
