Simple Supper 4

I’ve developed a series – wahey!  Simple Suppers.  But please don’t feel restricted – these ideas could also serve as lunch or brunch too.

I goat’s cheese, if you didn’t already know!  And it goes very well with caramelised onions, like so.

P1060961Goat’s Cheese & Caramelised Onion Tortilla (for 1)

3 medium onions, peeled and sliced

1 tbsp oil

1 tortilla wrap

salt & fresh black pepper

1 slice goat’s cheese, chopped/crumbled

salad to serve

Heat the oil in a frying pan over a low-medium heat, add the sliced onions and cover the pan with a lid.  Allow the onions to soften, keeping covered with the lid to prevent the onions caramelising(burning!) too early – they need to be soft first.  Once softened, remove the lid, add a little salt and fresh black pepper, increase the heat to medium and stir the onions until they have caramelised.  So they will be browned/starting to look a little crispy.  Set the onions aside in a bowl.

With the heat turned off:  Place the tortilla in the hot pan, place the onions on top of the tortilla and sprinkle the goat’s cheese over the onions.  Cover the pan with the lid again and turn the heat to ‘low’ to allow the tortilla and goat’s cheese to heat.  Once the goat’s cheese is warm, fold the tortilla in half and slide onto a plate to serve with the salad.  Enjoy!
P1060960There’s wonderful melty goat’s cheese poking out of the tortilla, and you can just see dark, caramelised onions which are slightly sweet and very good for you  🙂

This makes for a hot, tasty, satisfying and quick meal with a good dose of vitamins and minerals all round.  The large amount of onions makes it a big fat tortilla to slice into.

What is your favourite simple supper?


Oh No…

…another simple eat!  But in their defense, they are nutritious, tasty and satisfying 🙂

Take some goat’s cheese, slice it and spread over a tortilla in a cold frying-pan.  Cover the goat’s cheese with some roasted vegetables.  Mine was a mix of onions, peppers and tomatoes.  Cover with another tortilla.

Cover the pan with a lid and turn on a low heat.  Heat for approx 2-3 minutes, and then slide from the pan on to a plate.  I decided to scatter a bunch of rocket inside of this one, for some extra flavour and nutrition.

Some people will heat rocket, but I find it goes ‘slimy’ which I cannot bear – just the same as heated spinach – yuk!

Mmmm…enjoy that melty goat cheese goodness!

Christmas Wrap

Just another idea for a wrap, and a little more Christmas(not that I need the festive season as an excuse to eat certain foods…).  I made some Cranberry Sauce and included it in this wrap for a lunch.

A large handful of spinach leaves, a good dollop of Cranberry Sauce(I love cranberries) and some tasty brie rolled up in a wholemeal tortilla wrap.  The Cranberry Sauce was very sharp but the mix was good.  And included a portion of veg.  I count the cranberries too, although I’m sure many would question that!  But every little helps one’s health.

I’ve also had this wrap hot, toasted in the frying pan – melty brie is good!

Do you have any interesting combinations involving cranberries?
