This all-in-one dish is guaranteed to get a thumbs up from the whole family. Chef Lizzie has created a Mexican-style ‘lasagne’, using whole-wheat tortillas instead of sheets of pasta, filling each layer with a veg-packed tomato sauce and baking it until the cheesy topping is golden and bubbly. Serve up in the middle of your table along with all the toppings and dig in!

Add the Mexican spice to the veggies and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Stir in the kidney beans, finely chopped tomatoes, vegetable stock and water (see ingredients for amount), bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer until thick and tomatoey, 6-8 mins. TIP: It will be quite a thick mixture.

Meanwhile, grate the cheese. Zest the lime then chop into wedges. In a small bowl mix the lime zest with the soured cream. Halve the chilli, deseed and finely chop. Pop the chilli and limey soured cream to one side (separately). These are your toppings!

Spread a little of the veggie mixture into the base of a round ovenproof dish. Lay in a tortilla, then spread some more veg mixture on top. Scatter over some cheese, then pop another tortilla on top. Continue layering until you have used everything up, finishing with a tortilla on top and a final scattering of cheese. The number of layers  you have will vary depending on the size of your dish!

Bake until golden and bubbly, 6-8 mins. In the meantime add the baby leaves to a large bowl and mix with half the lime juice, a glug of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. When ready, remove the bake from the oven and allow to sit for a few minutes before slicing and serving with the salad, remaining lime wedges and toppings of your choice! Enjoy!
