Cook The Mushrooms

Heat a frying pan over a high heat, add the oil and add the mushrooms and leave them to brown for a few minutes before tossing and adding the butter and the leaves of the thyme.

Lay out a tortilla and sprinkle with quarter of the cheddar cheese and top with an even layer of mushroom and spinach mix. Then top with more cheddar and half of the goats cheese.
