  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Tip all of the vegetables into a large roasting tin. Add the cumin seeds, oil and balsamic vinegar, then toss together. Roast for 45-50 mins until the veg is tender and starting to char.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the tahini and peanut butter with the lemon juice, coriander, garlic and about 4-5 tbsp water to make a dressing.

  3. When the veg is ready, leave to cool a little. Add the mint, coriander, lemon zest and chickpeas, then toss well.

  4. If you're following our Healthy Diet Plan, serve two portions now with the eggs, some dressing and half the spinach, then serve the remainder on another day without the eggs.
