I didn't expect it to be so good! Instead of peas and zucchini I used swiss chard - probably a little over a cup. Left the skins on the sweet potatos too. Made my own chili reduction sauce with red thai curry paste, rice vinegar, maracchino cherry syrup, soy sauce, and lemon juice. Excellent on a little bed of mixed greens! Thanks!

  3. Cut the zucchini into small dice (about the size of the baby peas) add this and all other ingredients to kumara and mix well, season with salt & pepper.
  4. Divide the mixture into equal portions and cook in non stick fry pan lightly oiled for 3 minutes each side, drain on paper towel.
  5. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve on a bed of baby spinach and drizzle with sweet chili sauce.
