Note from creator Annette Sym:

I got the idea for this recipe when I was at a posh restaurant but it was anything but low in fat. If you want to impress your guests then put this on the menu for that something a bit different, but so delicious.

Dietitian’s Tip:

This is a fantastic side dish that increases your fruit and vegetable intake. The Dietitians Association of Australia promotes healthy eating to achieve healthy weight. Recommendations include adding fruit and/or vegetables to every meal and snack.
