4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 tbs of finely chopped parsley
2 tbs of finely chopped coriander and more for garnish
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

That sounds great Badger, I will try that one. In fact I would have done it last night if I hadn't already got the stuff ready for a butternut squash and fennel crumble.

As you might guess, I had a good result with my butternut squash harvest this year Very Happy

I had a surprise plant, I thought I was growing pumpkins - I ended up with dozen or so Butternuts...
