October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and for the third year running, Mission Deli has pledged their support by giving their Original wrap packs a pink makeover and pledging to donate a whopping £50,000 from from the sales of their packs to Breast Cancer Care. For the #FriendsUnwrapped campaign Mission Deli have teamed up with food writer and stylist, Rosie Birkett, to bring these simple and delicious recipes, each with a hint of pink and both perfect for sharing with friends. Read on to find out how to create a veganised version of the Spiced Apple Tart and a Cheat’s Kimchi & Cheddar Quesadilla at home!
Cheat’s Kimchi & Cheddar Quesadilla with Toasted Sesame Mayo
I simply love quesadillas, they are such a quick, tasty and versatile lunchtime meal and my children enjoy them, too. Rosie's spin on them sounds amazing, I especially like the sound of the toasted sesame mayo and can't wait to try this recipe out!
For the paste
2 cloves garlic, peeled
2 shallots, peeled
1/2 tsp chilli powder
tbsp maple syrup
tsp soy sauce
tsp rice vinegar
tbsp rapeseed oil
1/4 white cabbage, sliced
1/2 white onion, sliced
1 spring onion, sliced
100g vegan cheddar
2 Mission Deli wraps
For the mayo
tbsp vegan mayonnaise (I love Chippa May-o)
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
tsp black sesame seeds
To make the cheats kimchi paste
1. Blitz all the ingredients for the paste in a mini chopper or food processor.
2. Heat the rapeseed oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add the paste and cook it off over a medium heat for a few minutes.
3. Add in the onion, cabbage and spring onion and cook for about five minutes, until the cabbage is cooked and the whole lot is incorporated with the spicy paste. Set aside.
To make the Quesadilla
1. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium high heat. Place one wrap in the pan and cover with half the cheese.
2. Top with the cabbage mix and then cover with the rest of the cheese.
3. Place another wrap on top and cook for 3-4 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
4. Flip the quesadilla onto a plate and then put it back in the pan with the uncooked wrap on the bottom.
5. Cook for a further three minutes then slide out of the pan and cut. Mix the mayo ingredients together and serve alongside the quesadilla.
Spiced Apple Tart
This recipe uses wraps instead of pastry as a base, something I have never thought to try! This is a quick way to get your baked apple fix in less than twenty minutes and without the carb overload.
2 apples, cored, quartered and very finely sliced
2 Mission Deli Original wraps
50g baking spread, melted
2 tbsp brown sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 180. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
2. Lay one wrap on it and paint it with melted spread. Lay the other wrap on top, paint with more spread and bake for 6 minutes
3. Meanwhile toss the apple with the remaining melted spread, sugar and cinnamon.
4. Remove the base from the oven and arrange the apples on top in a circular pattern.
5. Bake for a further 12 minutes or until the apples are cooked and the base is golden.
6. Serve with yoghurt or ice cream. Perfect for breakfast, afternoon tea or dessert!
How delicious do these recipes sound? I'll definitely be cooking some up this weekend. Look out for the Mission Deli pink packs in supermarkets, and let me know if you try the recipes!
