tortilla bake for Dennis

( This is part of a new project – virtual cooking for friends during #COVID19)

It feels like I’ve known Dennis Queen, from campaigns we participated together, for a very long time. Recently, we had some time together when they came down from Manchester to lead a music workshop for Culture Access. I thought it would be good to suggest a dish for their family, a mixt of vegan/vegetarian and meat eaters, young and older members. I asked what they would like and came up with this dish that can be served as a main meal or as a side dish. It might be a good TV or Netflix dish to have together as it resembles nachos.

( This is part of a new project – virtual cooking for friends during #COVID19

This current coronavirus pandemic means that for many of us, disabled people with social isolation, are restricted to virtual meetings.

As it means no eating together – here’s a new project in that we would cook a dish with the friend in mind and share it here. The recipes here are not expert cooking but shared with love.)

Rob (instagram @veggielad) is a vegan – he is also my friend Holly’s husband, and I was invited to their lovely wedding not so long ago. I feel guilty that the last time we ate together, there wasn’t a proper vegan dish on the restaurant menu. Hence I am offering this – in place of a proper meal which will have to wait till the pandemic and my social isolation ends. I thought this might be a good simple dish to share – with all ingredients that can be found in a store cupboard. This is such an easy dish that Naomi and I made it together while watching an episode of Chinese drama (explanation of the sound in the background.)
