Tortilla, pepperonata, butter bean casserole and red cabbage slaw

End of the week for the veg box, some red peppers, so an interesting mix for tea.


Maize meal
Warm water

Mix to a paste - squish into tortillas in specialist tortilla squisher - between sheets of cling film.  Or, in less gadget driven households - roll out, between cling film so that it doesn't stick to the surface - with a rolling pin.

Fry in a little olive oil and butter.  Keep warm in the oven.


1 red onion diced
Olive oil
2 red peppers
2 cloves crushed garlic
Tomato puree
Chili flakes

Sweat onion in olive oil, add chopped peppers, garlic and tomato puree.  Add a little water so that it stays juicy.  Add chili flakes and salt.  Cover and simmer gently for about 45 minutes.

Butter bean casserole

Half a red onion, diced
Olive oil
Drained tin of chick peas
Splosh of white wine
Grated rind of half a lemon
Dried rosemary
Black pepper
Crushed garlic

Stick everything into cast iron casserole and simmer gently.  Ours went a little dry, should have checked that there was enough liquid and added a little water.  Delish though.

Red cabbage slaw

1/2 red cabbage
1 small red onion
3 carrots
Squeeze of lemon juice
1 tsp mustard
fennel seeds
3 tbsp natural yogurt
black pepper

Grate, mix - taste, adjust seasoning.

Stick everything on the table and let the free for all commence.
