    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 1 onion, chopped



    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • 1 red or yellow pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 200g can chopped tomato
  • 85g canned mixed bean, rinsed and drained
  • good pinch of mild chilli powder
  • 3 generous handfuls of fresh spinach leaves



    Used in almost every cuisine across the world, spinach is an enormously popular green vegetable…

  • 4 flour tortillas, about 20cm in diameter


  1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the onion and pepper and cook gently for a few minutes until they are soft.

  2. Tip in the tomatoes and mixed beans, then add the chilli powder. Heat until the sauce is bubbling, then lower the heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Now add the spinach to the tomato and bean mixture and cook until the leaves have wilted – this will only take a minute or so. Remove the pan from the heat. Check the seasoning – you shouldn’t need salt, though you might want to add a little pepper, and more chilli powder if you like things hot.

  3. Lay the tortillas on a work top, spoon in the filling, then fold them into triangles.

I have made my husband eat only healthy meals for the last two weeks and although I dont like tortillas normally I needed something different to stop him getting fed up!! Have been working through the healthy meals on this site and this was absolutely delicious. I used a mixture of rocket, spinach and coriander leaves as that was already in the fridge. Full of flavour and really tasty mopping up the juices - I used paprika instead of chilli powder. Brilliant for a quick saturday night tea and more than enough for two
