Spicy Cauliflower Wraps

Good Afternoon everyone! I hope your Sunday has been good so far. This recipe was one of my favourite vegetarian recipes because it was so simple but full of good flavour. It’s amazing what a little chilli, garlic and cumin will do to cauliflower, these wraps were packed with flavour and left me feeling full. You could also try this recipe using pitta bread instead of wraps.

Sweet Potato Balls

Hello everyone, I hope the weather is nice and warm wherever you are in the world. The UK has been pretty sunny this week and its great!

Following on from the vegetarian recipes, today features sweet potatoes which are a savior when eating vegetarian meals. It makes a change from normal potatoes and tastes delicious. Sweet potatoes are also very nutritional depending upon how they are cooked and provide the body with fibre, vitamin C and many other nutritional benefits.

As you can see in the image below, I ate the sweet potato with broccoli and sweetcorn which complimented the slight oiliness of the fried potato. These sweet potato balls were soft on the inside with a crispy outer layer and would go great in a wrap/tortilla.

Sweet Potato Balls recipe (serves 2-3)

Ingredients

3 sweet potatoes

1 tsp ground cumin

2 garlic gloves – crushed

2 tsp ground coriander

2 tbsp lemon juice

100g plain flour

Method

  • Firstly, peel, wash and chop the potatoes, place in a pot of water and bring to the boil. Once cooked, leave to cool.
  • Mash the potatoes in a bowl and mix with the other ingredients.
  • Heat oil in a pan and once hot enough add spoonfuls of the potato mixture to the pan and fry until golden brown, roughly 7 minutes.

Quorn Mince

Hi everyone, today’s recipe is another quick, tasty vegetarian meal. It’s my own take on chilli con carne but meat free. When I made this meal it was only for me and I just used ingredients needed for one person. There’s not much veg going on either but you could have it with a little salad. Also, when I’m making rice I like to add more flavour by using a little thyme, butter and salt.
