  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a frying pan, then cook the mushrooms with a pinch of salt over low heat for 5 minutes, or until they begin to release their juices. Add the chilli flakes and stir in the parsley.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in a nonstick frying pan and fry one tortilla for 1 minute, or until golden. Using a slotted spoon to drain them, spoon the mushrooms onto the tortilla, leaving a little room around the edge. Top with the cheese and season with sea salt and black pepper.
  3. Top with the other tortilla, pressing it down with the back of a spatula to sandwich the two together. Scoop the quesadilla up, carefully turn it over, and cook the other side for another minute, or until it is golden and the cheese melted. Slice in halves or quarters, and serve.
