With so much beautiful seasonal produce around at this time of year I couldn’t help but combine some of my favourites and create this delicious vegetable dish. Ok, I did throw in some smoked pork loin but of you want to keep it all veg just leave it out. The star of the show has to be the chestnut and millet crumble I concocted, loaded with gorgeous and aromatic baharat spice mix. I urge you make the baharat spice mix as it really is as simple as toasting off a few seeds and grinding them. You don’t use the whole quantity in this vegetable recipe so keep the spice mix in a screw-top jar in the pantry to rub into fish or chicken before you cook it.
This is a great side dish for a lunch or dinner spread, and also just perfect on its own as a light meal.
Serves 4 as a side, or 2 as a meal
