  • Halve the cherry tomatoes and semi-dried tomatoes and cut the chilli into fine rings.
  • When the sweet potatoes are done, mix with the avocado, sweet lupins, cherry tomatoes, chilli, black sesame seeds, and semi-dried tomatoes in a bowl.

We were really excited when we saw lupins in a jar for the first time this week and have incorporated them directly into a recipe. If you can’t find lupine while shopping, you can replace it with giant white beans. Tastes just as good!
