Tomato recipe

For Jan:
This is a lovely filling for jacket potatoes (or tortilla wraps if you're not on a gluten free diet!)
This is enough for two ppl, to fill a couple of jacket spuds, or 4 tortilla wraps

Bit of olive oil
One finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 red pepper, seeded and cut into thin strips
1 yellow pepper, ditto
1 tsp smoked paprika (a marvellous ingredient, worth finding in a deli)
150g of sunblush tomatoes chopped a bit
4 fresh toms - chopped quite small

50 g grated cheddar

(if you're a meat eater a few cubes of chorizo sausage would harmonise well with this)

Fry the onion and garlic for a few minutes to soften
Add the peppers and paprika powder - soften the peppers
Add tomatoes, both types, and fry to warm through. You're not really aiming to "cook" the fresh tomatoes too much.

Add the cheese at the last minute and stir through to melt, then serve with the baked spud

of course, if you are keen to add calories to your diet, as opposed to slimming, you can tart this recipe up with guacamole and soured cream!
