It’s been a while since i have blogged only because recently my children have become so very fussy and I don’t have time as i’ve been concentrating on my photography work!
But today I was determined to cook something super healthy and blog on the same day like I used to.
I bring with me a super duper trio of broccoli, kidney beans and sweetcorn style filling for the ever popular tortilla wrap!
So here goes…Much love D x
1 large broccoli into florets
1 tin kidney beans
1 tin tomato crushed
1 small tin of sweetcorn
1 tbsp rapeseed oil
3 shalots diced
2 garlic cloves minced
1 tsp cumin seeds
Crushed chilli flakes to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat up oil and cumin seeds in a large saucepan on a medium heat. Once the seeds sizzle, cook off the shalots for a minute or so.
Toss in the broccoli with the sweetcorn.
Season with salt, pepper and chilli flakes. Mix well
Cover and cook on a low heat for 8 to 10 minutes
Put in the crushed tomatoes, kidney beans and garlic. Stir well. Cover for another 10 minutes
Now the filling is ready to put into tortilla wraps! Don’t forget the grated cheese! If you’re not vegan.
The perfect sauce for your gnocchi. Smoked Chipotle chilli flakes with fleshy tomatoes crushed with garlic salt and pepper and a little bit of rape seed oil. Which in turn gives you a wonderful aromatic spicy and yet tantalizing sauce for any pasta dish!
All you do is blitz all the ingredients and gently cook through to fuse all the flavours.
1 tin crushed/whole tomatoes
1 medium white onion
2 garlic cloves
1 tbsp rapeseed oil
2 pinches chipotle dried flakes
1 tsp garlic salt
Ground black pepper to taste
Dried Oregano to taste
Salt to taste
Blend the tomatoes, onion and garlic cloves together
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Sprinkle in the chipotle flakes, pepper, dried oregano and garlic salt as the oil heats up
Keeping on a slow heat, pour the tomato blended mix. Season with salt, stir and cover the saucepan
My 3 year old son kept eating these flatbreads despite the fact that he occasionally got the odd chilli flake. He just kept on going. So very moreish are these flatbreads! That once you start, you won’t be able to stop!
1 cup wholewheat/chapati flour
1 cup self raising flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic granules
1/2 tsp dry chilli flakes
2 tsp sunflower oil
Boiling water to knead
Sunflower oil for cooking
Place both types of flour in a large mixing bowl with the salt, garlic granules, chilli flakes and 2 tablespoons of oil.
Use fingers to make a crumble consistency. Add boiling water gently to form a soft dough
Bring together and knead for 5 minutes
In the meantime heat a non stick frying pan on a medium heat
Take about a tablespoon and a half of dough. Roll flat to about a 10cm diameter disc
Place in the frying pan. Cook on both sides until golden brown, using a little oil to aid the process
