Kimchi Quesadilla - Sauteed Kimchi with Cheese

Kimchi Quesadilla – it makes complete sense! It’s just that you have never thought to put the two together before. Try it out ;)
Course: Easy
Servings: 1


  • Tortilla - 1
  • Mozzarella cheese - ⅓ cup
  • Kimchi - 2 Tablespoons
  • Shiitake mushrooms - 1 whole
  • Scallions - 1 teaspoon
  • Sesame seeds - ½ teaspoon
  • Butter - 1 teaspoon


Make Kimchi Filling

  • Chop kimchi and Shiitake mushroom into small pieces.
  • Place butter into a frying pan and put it on medium heat. Put both into a frying pan and stir-fry together. Stop when the kimchi turns slightly brown on the edges. Garnish with sesame seeds.

Make Quesadilla

  • Put frying pan on medium heat. Place tortilla on frying pan and flip to get both sides hot. Then place the sautéed kimchi and mushrooms on one side of the tortilla. Add scallions on top. Add cheese on top.
  • Fold the two halves together. Flip and cook until both sides are golden brown. Garnish with scallions. Enjoy!


  • Cook the quesadilla on a medium heat - that way you get a slightly crispy surface and the cheese fully melts.
