INGREDIENTS

175g pack baby corn

1 large red onion, sliced

1 red pepper, deseeded and roughly chopped

½ tsp cumin seeds

2 tsp olive oil

1 large ripe kiwi, halved lengthways

1 large tomato, halved

100g wholemeal flour, plus extra for rolling

1 large garlic clove

Handful of fresh coriander, chopped

1 tsp vegan bouillon powder

½ tsp smoked paprika

85g red cabbage, finely shredded

METHOD

STEP 1

Heat oven to 200C (fan). Pile the corn, red onion and pepper into a large shallow roasting tin and toss with the cumin seeds and oil. Add the kiwi and tomato on one side of the tin and roast for 20 mins.

STEP 2

Meanwhile, mix 60ml water into the flour with the blade of a knife to make a dough. Knead briefly until smooth, then cut equally into four and roll out each piece on a lightly floured surface into a 16cm round tortilla. Cover with a tea towel to stop them drying out.

STEP 3

Remove the cooked tomato and kiwi from the tin and return the veg to the oven for 10 mins. Remove the skin from the kiwi and scoop the flesh into a bowl with the tomato, garlic, half the coriander, bouillon and paprika. Use a hand blender to blitz to a smooth salsa.

STEP 4

Heat a large non-stick frying pan, without oil, and cook the tortillas one at a time for a minute on one side and about 10 seconds on the other, until you see them puff up a little. Spread a tortilla with some salsa, top with cabbage and roasted veg, then scatter with the remaining coriander. Add a spoonful more salsa and eat with your hands.
