    Zingy mexican salsa (free on all plans)

    1 clove garlic skin on
    1 or 2 chillies whole
    1 red onion peeled and quartered
    3 tomatoes
    lime juice to taste

    • put all except the lime juice in a dry frying pan on high heat.
    • Move around 10-15 mins until blackened and charred in places Turn the extractor on full or open a window!
    • Cool until you can handle
    • Peel the garlic and remove the chilli stalks (and seeds if you don't want it too hot)
    • In a pestle and mortar grind the chilli and garlic to a paste, add onions and garlic and grind (or whizz in a processor)
    • Season with lime juice and salt to taste

    Homemade Refried Beans (Free on green and EE)

    1 onion chopped
    1 clove garlic chopped
    1 tin pinto beans drained (borlotti / cannelini / kidney ok if that’s what you have)
    ½ tsp ground cumin (optional)
    veg stock

    spring onions, grated cheese from HEX and 0% greek yoghurt to serve

    • Fry onion and garlic until soft and brown, add cumin if using and fry off 1 min.
    • Add the beans and warm through, adding a little stock to make a thick gravy – mash lightly with potato masher until has a mushy pea consistency
    Serve with rice and salad, or use lettuce leaves as wraps. Leftovers are even better the next day.

    I tweaked these recipes from an old photocopy from a magazine my sister gave me – I think they are by Thomasina Meirs (Masterchef a few years ago)
