One of my favourite things about summer has to be the food… Think BBQ’s, picnics and long, lazy afternoons sat in the garden with a glass of something chilled. As we’re blessed with lighter evenings, this has given me a chance to experiment with cooking a little more and try new recipes.
Homemade tortilla crisps and a cold jug of sangria make for the perfect accompaniment to a summer BBQ, picnic or simply just a Sunday afternoon! Keep reading to find out how to make them…
Homemade tortillas with Boursin
– 8 small tortilla wraps
– Cajun seasoning (optional!)
– Sunflower oil spray
– Garlic and herb Boursin
1. Cut your tortilla wraps into triangles using a knife (or pizza cutter!) and arrange them on a baking tray.
2. Spray or brush oil over the tortillas and sprinkle cajun seasoning, or leave them plain. Pop into a pre-heated oven at 200C and bake for five minutes.
3. Remove from oven and flip the tortillas over, repeated the above steps.
4. Serve on a plate with your garlic and herb Boursin in the middle as a dip. The perfect addition to a summer cheeseboard or BBQ!
– bottle of dry red wine (chilled)
– 80 ml brandy
– tablespoon of sugar
– fruit (oranges, lemons, limes & apples work well!)
1. Chop up your fruit, saving two large slices of orange. Pop it in a large jug and add the sugar and brandy. Stir well.
2. Add your ice, then the wine. Give everything a good stir before topping up with lemonade – depending on how strong you want your Sangria!
3. Serve in wine glasses over more ice and finish off with your orange slices. Voila!
