Recipe: Soya Mince Tortillas

Hubby recently started stocking up on soy mince because he had heard - rightly - that it was much less fattening than meat. I admit that I had not been keen to try it. I am very much a meat eater! But one evening he cooked for the family, used the soy mince, and guess what... it was nice! The kids ate it without question (we didn't tell them it wasn't meat) and when I worked out the Weight Watchers Propoints value I was sold!

So while we haven't given up meat, I do use soy mince instead of meat in recipes that would be very expensive in propoints if we used meat.

This tortilla meal is one good example of this. We like it with beans, and rice, and cheese, and dip! Swapping beef mince to soy mince makes it a much lower points value meal. Guilt free!

What we use:

8 Old El Paso "Stand'n'stuff" tortillas
50g Soya Mince (we use Granose)
100g rice
10 sprays of low fat cooking spray
1 onion
1 pepper
5-6 mushrooms
1 tin tomatoes
1 tsp Chilli powder
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Cumin
2 cloves Garlic
1 tsp Oregano

Extras:

1 tin baked beans (we used Branston's)
1 215g tub of Soured Cream & Chive Dip (we used Asda's own)
60g Cheedar Cheese

What to do:

Warm the tortillas in oven on a low heat, wrapped in foil. Cook the rice in salted water and set aside. Prepare the soy mince as directed.

Fry the onions, peppers and mushrooms until soft. Add the mince, tomatoes and spices. Stir in the rice and season to taste.

Heat the beans in a separate pan.

Spoon the mince & rice mixture into the tortillas, top with soured cream dip and sprinkle over with the cheese, serve with the beans.

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on
