Serves 2 generously
Suitable for freezing
1 tbsp sunflower oil, plus 2 tsp for brushing and sealing
1 small red onion, finely chopped
8 green beans, finely chopped
1 tbsp frozen peas
1 carrot, grated
2 tsp garam masala
juice of 1 unwaxed lemon
2 soft tortillas
Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6.

Serve hot or cold.
