Vegetables

This dish is excellent eaten warm with a little extra chilli during the winter months and chilled with extra slices of lemon & and oranges during the summer months. I made a big batch of it yesterday for a client who ordered 8 servings, she fetched it at about 9.30am and called at 10.30 to ask if I had extra as her family had already munched a fair amount before her guests arrived, and lucky for her I had made extra for my family as well. As my plans for lunch were out the door, we went out for lunch.
