A meatball marinara sub… sorta? Without the marinara, meatballs or sub. Perhaps a vegan, healthified version?

I steamed some chopped courgette/zucchini, red bell pepper and tomatoes then cooked them with salt, black pepper, tomato paste, ketchup and sweet chilli sauce and put in all inside a toasted wholewheat pitta with a sprinkling of nutritional yeast and pumpkin seeds.

It filled a big hole and warmed me up - it’s below freezing again today and the wind is so bitter. Hot food for every meal is definitely a necessity! :D

Banana Flat Breads.

A little like sweet, more dense pitta breads. Combine a pitta and a pancake, and voila!

If you toast one lightly and smother it in jam or peanut butter, it’s delicious!

What you will need;

  • 2 cups wholemeal flour;
  • 1 cup mashed banana (1 1/2 medium bananas);
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Greek yoghurt.

The original recipe calls for 2-3 tbsp canola oil, but I found yoghurt worked just fine too. (However, this recipe was originally vegan… you can always use soy yoghurt!)

1. Combine the flour, mashed bananas, yoghurt (or oil) and a pinch of salt to form a stiff dough. You may need to add a little more flour so the dough isn’t sticky.

2. On a floured surface, make the dough in to a ball, and divide in to six smaller balls. Then, roll each ball into flat circles, around your “average pancake” thickness.

3. Heat a griddle, and spray a few times with oil spray. Place the flat bread on the griddle and spray the side facing up once before flipping it and cooking the other side. It takes around 3 minutes per flat bread.

Then munch away!

I topped one with raspberry preserves and blueberries when it was still hot from the pan. :)
