Recipes TOTALLY COOL TORTILLA TOASTIES
TOTALLY COOL TORTILLA TOASTIES
Cooking outdoors is one of the myriad pleasures that summer offers. The humble ‘braaibroodjie’ (or 'BBQ Sarmie' for our non-locals) is always a winner around the braai fire/ BBQ. At its simplest, it’s just bread, tomato and onion sandwiched together and popped in a grid over the coals. But why not take that idea and run with it a bit – in the form of stuffed tortilla braaibroodjies. Instead of bread use wraps, and instead of the usual tomato and onion, turn it into a complete meal by stuffing the wraps with cheese, meat, veggies and even fruit. A liberal dusting of your favourite Cape Herb & Spice spice blend is the finishing touch before you clamp it in a grid and place it on the braai fire. Here are a few ideas to put you on the path to oozy melting cheesy deliciousness.
- METHOD -
- Garlic & Herb Tortilla Braaibroodjie -
Cape Herb & Spice’s Garlic and Herb Shaker Seasoning forms the backdrop for indulgent Mediterranean flavours. Think tomatoes, olives, artichokes, salami, anchovy, green pepper... they all work. Of course a very large handful of grated mozzarella is called for along with a scattering of torn fresh basil.
- Louisiana Cajun Tortilla Braaibroodjie -
Augment the spicy hit of Cape Herb & Spice’s Louisiana Cajun Rub Seasoning with smoky bacon bits, flaked chicken, red onion, red pepper, coriander and a mix of cheddar and mozzarella cheese.
- Sriracha Chilli Tortilla Braaibroodjie -
The sweet, sour and hot notes of Cape Herb & Spice’s Sriracha Chilli are perfectly paired with spring onions, coriander, tinned tuna and pineapple. Add mozzarella and you have yourself a tunamelt sandwich with a difference!
Best enjoyed eaten outdoors alongside the fire and even better - under the stars - enjoy.
