8 spears of asparagus
2 handfuls of watercress
1 heaped tbsp. of Parmesan cheese or vegetarian equivalent
1 tsp chives
Crème fraiche or yogurt (optional)

Step 2

In a saucepan stir fry the sweet potato and the carrot in the oil for a couple of minutes

Step 3

Add the chickpeas and enough water to cover the vegetables and cook for a further 8 minutes or until the sweet potato is soft. Add more water if required so the vegetables don't dry out

Add the asparagus and watercress and cook for another minute

Step 5

Stir in the Parmesan cheese or vegetarian equivalent and chives to the mixture and remove from the heat

Step 6

Mash or blend to the required texture. Add the crème fraiche, yogurt or water from the chickpeas to loosen the texture if you need to
