Lamb Kofta Pitts Pockets

image

You can serve these lamb koftas with some couscous and salad or in pitta bread like I have done

To make the koftas mix 400g of minced lamb in a bowl with two chopped spring onions, a small handful of fresh chopped mint, 2 teaspoons of cumin and 1/2 cinnamon along with some salt and pepper. Mix all the ingredients well with your hands and divide in to four. Press each portion around a skewer to form four koftas then place under a grill and cook for 4-5 minutes before turning over and cooking for another 2-3 minutes until cooked through.

Chop up and serve in some pitta bread along with some salad and yoghurt

Pesto Chicken and spinach Quesadillas

I love quesadillas, they are so simple to make, filling and versatile. I’m always looking out for new filling ideas, this is one of my favourites.

Pan fry a tortilla wrap filled with spinach, pesto, mozzarella and pesto. Fill only one half of the wrap and fold over the other half, fry on both sides and serve whilst hot

 

Chicken Tikka Pitts Pockets

This is great for lunch or a lighter dinner. Mia struggles with the ‘pocket’ so I just give her a deconstructed version with pitta soldiers instead which works well

Simply marinate some diced chicken in yoghurt and chicken tikka paste – I use pataks – and leave for as long as you can.

When you’re ready, grill the marinated chicken and serve in a toasted pitta pocket with spinach, cucumber and yoghurt along with a side salad

Chilli Burritos

So this is a really great way of using left over Chilli and rice and turning it into another meal.

Just grab a wrap, warm it in the microwave for a couple of seconds and start piling it up with rice, chilli, spring onion, avocado, tomatoes, and grated cheese. Roll the wrap up in to a burrito and secure with some foil to keep the filling in place – this is particularly useful for little ones – and enjoy!

 

 

Quickie Pizza

These are great for when you’ve not got much time and you want something quick but healthy.

All you need is some wraps, I use the Warburton wraps in the photo below as they are bit thicker than the normal circular wraps, some cheese, passata, and what ever toppings you fancy

I usually raid the fridge for any veg that needs using up, the cupboards for some sweetcorn and the fridge for some ham or chicken

First spread the passata over the wrap, top with your choice of filling and cheese thrn cook in the oven for 10 minutes 180fan and enjoy.
