    My family love this recipe. I add t teaspoon each of the cumin and coriander and so delicious. The mixture keeps well in the fridge to use the next day and great to take to work for lunch.

    I didn't use any of the herbs or spices and it was still really nice. My colleagues at work even commented and have started making it themselves.

    Fresh and healthy comfort food. I used mountain bread and they were very satisfying.
