This recipe is one of those special dishes that simply delivers on flavour, health benefits and you can swap the vegetables around to suit you.

Adding the nuts and seeds helps to pack in some extra protein.

For the nuts, I have used some almonds, flaked and whole, the desiccated coconut adds sweetness and the seeds add some extra crunch – please be as creative as you like with this, as long as they make about a small bowl in total, that should be fine.

I use chef crush, my own mix of spices, if you don’t have it, use a teaspoon of cumin seeds.
