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

INGREDIENTS 

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
METHOD
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
