Tortilla Cake

I adapted this recipe from one of those free recipe cards from Sainsbury's and it is absolutely delicious, even that carnivore, Pete, agreed.  As always, very simple to make and looks stunning.  It makes enough for four people.

1 onion (chopped)
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp ground coriander
2 garlic gloves
1 x can of mixed beans
1 can chopped tomatoes
100 ml veg stock
1 bunch spring onions (chopped)
1 can sweetcorn
4 tortilla wraps
100g cheese

Gently fry onion until soft, add chilli, cumin, coriander and garlic and fry for further minute.  Add beans, tomatoes, spring onions, sweet corn and stock and simmer for approx 15 mins until sauce is thicker.
Put 1 x tortilla wrap in greased baking dish, put quarter of sauce on top and sprinkle with quarter of the cheese.  Repeat 3 times, finishing with the cheese and bake at 200C for 25 minutes.  Enjoy!!!

  7. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. Gill, thanks for joining us and this is not particularly spicy but I suggest you just leave out the chilli x
