Food on Fridays: Tasty Diaries’ Tortilla Sandwiches

Another great recipe from the Tasty Diaries that will get your kids to yum up their broccoli while at the same time creating a quick and easy family supper.

Anne Laure of Tasty Diaries writes, “A fun, quick fix for a no-fuss and delicious family or TV dinner. It is also a great way to get big and small people to eat almost raw broccoli! My children love it, especially as they have to eat these with their fingers, which hikes up their enthusiasm quite a bit. Add chicken bits if you don’t want a vegetarian dinner, and enjoy the stuffing, tasty, melting and cheesy inside its crispy coat.”

Tortilla sandwiches with cheddar, broccoli and HP sauce


1 head of broccoli

8 soft flour tortillas

HP sauce

200g grated strong cheddar

1 chilli pepper, deseeded and chooped finely (optional)

Busy time: 15 min, Total prep time: 15 min

Serves 4 (24 slices)

Wash the broccoli thoroughly and wipe it dry. Using the larger holes of your grater, grate it, including florets and stems. If you like larger, crunchy bits, slice it finely instead.

Place 4 tortillas side by side and spread on each the equivalent of 2 teaspoons of HP sauce.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan on medium heat without adding any oil in it.

Once hot, place one tortilla on the dry pan, sauce side up. Sprinkle the broccoli and cheese and a bit of chopped chilli if using. Be generous with the ingredients, you want to obtain a filling on the thicker side.

Cover with another tortilla and allow to brown. When one side has reached a nice honey colour, turn the tortilla sandwich over and brown the other side.

The first tortilla may take 5 minutes to brown but be careful, once the pan is hot, things go much quicker. The broccoli should remain slightly crunchy, this is what makes these sandwiches so interesting.

Serve each tortilla cut into 8 slices with salad drizzled with vinaigrette, or with a nice tomato and coriander salsa.
