An easy, no fuss, delicious dish to prepare for those wintry days when only a bowl of something warming will do.

Ingredients

2. Add the onions. Allow to soften (5mins)

3. Add all the chopped vegetables and garlic

4. Add all the spices (and fresh chili if using)

5. Stir gently to coat the vegetables and cook for 5mins (this helps to seal in the flavor)
