The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.
Baby Plum Tomatoes
Baby Gem Lettuce

Beef Stock Paste
Super Soft Tortilla with Whole Wheat(ContainsCereals containing gluten)
Preheat your oven to 200°C. Halve the baby plum tomatoes. Trim the baby gem then separate the leaves and keep to one side. Pop the tomatoes into a bowl, drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Grate the cheese. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Drain and rinse the kidney beans in a sieve (see ingredients for amount, but use them all if you like beans!). Pop into a bowl and roughly mash with the back of a fork or a potato masher. Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the beef mince and season with salt and pepper. Fry until browned, 5-6 mins, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks. Drain and discard any excess fat. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling raw mince.
Once the mince is browned, add the garlic, tomato puree, crushed kidney beans and chipotle paste (careful, it's hot - add less if you don't like heat). Stir and cook for 1 min. Add the water for the beef, sugar (see ingredients for both amounts) and the beef stock paste then bring to the boil. Simmer, stirring frequently, until the mixture has thickened, 2-3 mins. IMPORTANT: The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Taste the filling and add salt and pepper if you feel it needs it. Lay the tortillas onto a baking tray and spoon the filling onto one half of each one. Top with the cheese. Fold the other side over to make a semi-circle. Press down to keep together. Transfer to a lightly oiled baking tray. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary. Drizzle over a little oil and bake on the middle shelf of your oven until golden, 8-12 mins.
Meanwhile, add the baby gem leaves to the tomatoes and toss together.
When everything is ready, serve the quesadillas on plates with the salad alongside. Enjoy!
