  • Lint-free towel cheesecloth

  • 1 (10oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • ¼ cup onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, plus more for greasing
  • ½ cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 4 (10") whole wheat tortillas
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. Drain thawed spinach

    Place the thawed spinach in a clean, lint-free dish towel or cheesecloth and squeeze over the sink getting the spinach as dry as possible. Place in a clean bowl and set aside.

  2. Sauté garlic and onions

    Place 2 tablespoons of oil in a large pan over medium heat and sauté the onion and garlic until translucent, about 5 minutes.

  3. Add spinach to pan

    Add the spinach, stirring to combine, and cook to warm the spinach for roughly 3 minutes.

  4. Season and take off the heat

    Season with salt and pepper, then stir and transfer it to a bowl.

  5. Clean and re-oil pan

    Safely wipe your pan clean using a paper towel. Then, lightly coat the bottom of the pan with a little more oil.

  6. Prepare tortilla

    Place the tortilla into the pan, and spread 2 tablespoons of marinara sauce over half the tortilla.

  7. Cover with toppings

    Top with ¼ cup of mozzarella cheese, a quarter of the spinach mixture, and 2 tablespoons of crumbled feta cheese.

  8. Fold over tortilla

    Fold the uncovered half over the sauce side and press down gently with the back of a spatula.

  9. Cook for a few minutes

    Cook until golden brown and crisp underneath, about 3–5 minutes.

  10. Flip quesadilla

    Carefully flip the quesadilla over. Cook until the mozzarella melted and the second side is crisp.

  11. Repeat the process and serve

    Remove to a wire rack and repeat to make three more. Slice into 4 triangles and serve with extra marinara on the side for dipping.
