    Tried to replicate something i had in a cafe. Simple dish similar to lasagne but with burrito tortillas instead of pasta. Easy to make and really tasty. This was first attempt so any suggestions appreciated.

    1. To make the sauce: Heat oil in pot. Add garlic and chillies and fry until garlic is slightly brown. Add dried oregano and fry briefly. Add two cans of tomatoes taking care not to break tomatoes up. add salt and thyme and boil gently for an hour stirring occasionally. After an hour tomatoes should be nice and sweet, now you can break them up into a sauce.
    2. Take a casserole pot and lightly grease. Start by laying one tortilla in the bottom. Lay the eggplant on the tortilla creating a flat layer. Cover with a portion of the sauce.
    3. Lay another tortilla on top of the eggplant and repeat the process with the pumpkin, creating a flat layer then covering in sauce.
    4. Do the same with the mushrooms (choose mushrooms of similar size so as to create a flat layer without having to chop them.)
    5. The top layer should be the capsicum. Add the cheese and chopped olives to the capsicum then cover with a final tortilla.
    6. Preheat oven to 180c and bake the vege stack with the lid on for 50 minutes or until veges are soft.
