Lovely cold for lunch, will make again and again. Don't always want food which will blast your tastebuds, nicely balanced, subtle flavours. Mmmmm!

Even with plenty of seasoning I found this very bland, will not be making this again

Not too bad with some seasoning but I think it's still missing something. I will make next time with peppers or mushrooms.
