My kids like to take this for packed lunch at school. I always put black olives in too. They like it as a change from sandwiches

Excellent. I added non salted, non fried Cashew nuts. I would have preferred to add walnuts. I also added Broccoli ( just a bit and the stem for the crunch). I might also consider adding the white of a boiled Eggs as a variation in future.

Really good. Halved and made in the morning before college for my mum and me to eat from our lunchboxes.

Why does this recipe say 350 ml of new potatoes? Should it be 350 gm?
