This week we have 2 recipes, one using cauliflower which you can find on the vegetable stall and the other using the amazing steak from the meat stall.

Steak Fajitas
Serves 2

You will need
oil 1 tablespoon
onion 1, thinly sliced (available at the veg stall)
red pepper 1, sliced lengthways
sirloin or rump steak, 2 medium sliced
fajita seasoning, 2 teaspoons
flour tortillas, 4
guacomole, salsa and sour cream (or greek yoghurt) to serve (I cheat and buy these from Sainsburys, M & S or Waitrose – they all do them as part of a “set”.

Method, step by step

    1. Heat oil in non-stick pan until really hot. Tip in the onions & peppers. Cook on high for a few minutes, just as they start to char at the edges.
    2. Add the steak and seasoning and toss well.
    3. Meanwhile warm the tortillas – 1 minute in the microwave should be sufficient.
    4. Take the pan with the guacomole, salsa and sour cream to the table alongside the warmed up tortillas.
    5. Put a dollop of each in a tortilla, roll up and enjoy!
