A cheese sandwich

This is another Nigel Slater job, with a bit of adjustment. It is also gorgeous.

Serves two.

A large naan bread.
200g block of feta
Three or four medium red chillies, thinly sliced
Six or seven spring onions (scallions), sliced
Olive oil
Thyme leaves

Warm the naan bread wrapped in foil in the oven.
Fry the chillies, spring onions and thyme gently in the olive oil, aiming to soften rather than brown. After a very few minutes, add the feta block - you just want to warm it through, not cook it.
Halve the naan, place a small lettuce leaf on each half, followed by half the cheese. Spoon over the chilli and onion mix, then fold the naan over to make a sandwich/wrap. Serve with grown-up chips.

And 'Grown-up chips' would be:
McCain curly oven fries
Half a red onion
Herbes de provence
Olive oil

Set the fries going in the oven while you slice the red onion and toss it in the dried herbs and olive oil. After five minutes, add the onion to the fries and continue to cook until the onion is getting crispy.
