In a grinder add fenugreek, pine nuts, garlic, parmesan, lemon juice and olive oil. Grind it to a coarse paste and set aside.

For Red pepper coulis:

  • Roast a red pepper with seasoning. Remove from the oven and cover with a cling film and set aside (this eases the peeling of the skin), peel off the skin now. In a skillet add olive oil, garlic, onion and red pepper chopped, Add tomatoes (skinless & seedless). Cook and puree.
  • Dice some potatoes and deep fry. Blanch the spaghetti and set aside. Dry some quartered tomatoes in salamander. Blanch some French beans & cut into halves.
