Quick and Healthy(ish) Pizza

24 Jan

Sometimes I want pizza, but I don’t have any frozen ones, and I just can’t be bothered to make dough. Here is the solution, it’s healthier and it only takes about 12 minutes (2 minutes assembling and 10 in the oven!). The result is a thin, crispy based pizza.

Tortilla/wrap – I had some lovely Mediterranean ones..
Pizza sauce (I’ll add a recipe for this soon, it’s always good to have some on standby in the fridge/freezer) – you could use some passata
Any extra toppings (use what you have/like)

Add a dollop of pizza sauce to your tortilla/wrap. Spread it around.
Grate cheese on top.
Add any toppings.
Cook in the oven for 10 minutes on 190°c.

Easy Cauliflower Cheese Soup

13 Jan

Forgot to take photos, oops! Use your imagination if you will, it’s a smooth cream-coloured soup with grated cheese on top!

1 onion
1tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 cauliflower
3 medium/large potatoes
2 bay leaves
pinch of thyme
chicken stock cube
cheese of your choice, however much you like!

Chop your onion and fry in the olive oil until soft. Add crushed garlic.

Add all of the cauliflower in florets, along with the potato (peeled and in rough chunks).

Add the bay leaves, thyme and the chicken stock cube (crumbled). Pour on enough boiled water to cover everything. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20-30 minutes (everything should be soft).

Season and blend.

When serving, top each bowl with a layer of grated cheese.
