Black beans, mushrooms, spinach leaves and Cheddar cheese find themselves tasty and nutrient-rich partners in this quick wrap sandwich.

4 fat-free flour tortillas (6 to 8 inch)

2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms (5 oz)

1 medium onion, cut lengthwise in half, then cut crosswise into thin slices

1 can (15 oz.) black beans, drained, rinsed

4 cups fresh spinach leaves

½ cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese (2 oz.) or shredded vegetarian cheese or your choice

■ Heat tortillas as directed on the package.
■ Meanwhile, spray a 10-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Cook mushrooms and onion in a skillet for about 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is crisp-tender. Stir in beans; heat through. Stir in spinach; remove from heat.
■ Divide bean mixture among tortillas. Sprinkle it with cheese. Fold one end of each tortilla up about 1 inch over filling; fold right and left sides over folded end, overlapping. Fold remaining end down.
