½ tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon powdered coriander
nuts or seeds, to garnish
Peel and chop squash, and whizz in blender until it is grainy, resembling couscous. Fold in onion, bellpepper, grapes, sundried tomatoes. Add olive oil and vinegar to taste. I used maybe an eighth a cup of oil and a bit more vinegar ( was out of lemons. Lime would be good too) Add in spices and stir, garnishing with nuts or seeds of your choice. I used cashews which were really yummy in this.
Fresh herbs, especially cilantro would be amazing in this
