Loaded With Delicious Vegetables such as the famous Hasselback Potato! 

This dish is made up of mostly vegetables such as the portobello mushrooms, hasselback potatoes, and butternut in the pumpkin fritters. This contributes to a nutritional dish, but with no compromise on flavor. The portobello mushrooms are seasoned and marinated with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and simply grilled in a pan until caramelized and rich. The hasselback potatoes are seasoned with salt, pepper, and rosemary, and are roasted in the oven until golden and crisp, and then sprinkled with parmesan cheese, which will melt and add a decadent richness to the potatoes. The pumpkin fritters are one of the most delicious parts about this dish, and are so simple to make. Butternut, flour, aquafaba (the liquid made from cooking chickpeas), and baking powder are combined to form a smooth batter and are fried in dollops in a pan. These are then dusted with cinnamon sugar, but feel free to add some golden syrup if you would like to add a touch more sweetness.  

What is Chakalaka? 

The last part to this dish is chakalaka. This is traditionally a South African spicy tomato, onion, and bean relish that is eaten as a side dish with other foods- so it is the perfect complementary sauce for the other flavors in this dish! It is made from white onion, red and green peppers, carrots, plum tomatoes, chickpeas, and seasoned with rice vinegar, ginger, and ground cinnamon. It is sweetened with chutney and treacle sugar. You can add a bit more spiciness if you would like, by adding some paprika or chili. The sweetness of the chakalaka makes it a great pairing for the savory mushrooms and potatoes! This refreshing relish is also quite simple to make- just cook all of the ingredients in a pan until softened and thickened and you have got yourself chakalaka! 

This dish offers loads of flavor on its own and does not need any other sides with it, but if you would like to add some freshness, you could serve it with a side salad of your choice.
