  • FOR THE DRESSING:
  • 1 tsp Cape Herb & Spice PORTUGUESE PERI PERI
  • pomegranates and edible flowers (optional)
  • 1 tsp Cape Herb & Spice Veggie Seasoning ROAST
  • large handful coriander and parsley, finely chopped
  • FOR THE BOWL:
  • 8 mint leaves
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 cucumber ribbons (use a veggie peeler to make them)
  • 1 cup tinned chickpeas, drained and dried
  • FOR THE ROAST VEG:
  • 1 cup red cabbage, finely shredded
  • 2 cups diced butternut
  • 1 cup cooked couscous
  • 8 baby carrots

- METHOD -

Place the carrots, diced butternut and chickpeas in a large bowl, pour over the olive oil and honey and toss to coat. Sprinkle the veggies with the seasoning spices and toss again to ensure everything is evenly coated with spice. Line a baking sheet with non-stick baking paper and spread out the vegetables on the sheet. Roast the veggies in a pre-heated 200˚C oven until cooked through – it takes about 30 minutes. (You could, if preferred, also roast these in your air fryer at 200˚C. Just do try to have a single layer of veggies or stack them in such a way that maximum airflow is allowed around the veggies.)

Once the veggies are roasted, build you bowl with the veggies and the rest of the bowl ingredients. Whisk together all the dressing ingredients and you’re ready to serve!
