Toasted tortilla


An insight into our sporting life at appetite HQ; this is what we enjoyed as we sat up into the early hours of Super Sunday in Rio, as Andy Murray triumphed in the tennis and Usain Bolt left the rest behind in the 100m. Did you know that the Primula cheese in this dish is made in Gateshead and all the company’s profits go to charity? Yup – we are a mine of information. Cheese in a tube – it’s the future!

Toasted tortilla
Serves: 2
  • 150g tube Primula cheese, any flavour

  • a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
  • handful of rocket
  1. Grill mushrooms 5-10 mins under a hot grill and set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 200C/Gas 6, place tortilla directly onto the shelf and cook for 5 mins.
