Simple Red Cabbage Salad

Place the cabbage into a bowl and top with the remaining ingredients. Use your hands to mix well, then set aside and let it rest while you prepare everything else.

Spicy Roasted Sweet Potato

Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Cut the sweet potato lengthwise, then lengthwise again, then slice into 1cm pieces. Quarter the onions, and place both onto a baking sheet. Add the oil and spices then use your hands to mix until the vegetables are fully coated in the spices. Roast for 20-22 minutes or until golden. Prepare the remaining elements while the vegetables cook.

Quick Spiced Kidney Beans

Heat a large pan over medium. Add the oil, followed by the beans and spices. Cook for a couple of minutes, stirring regularly, then add the vinegar, stir, and remove from the heat.

To build the bowl:

Place half of each element into bowls, and top with extra lemon juice if desired. Serve immediately or let the warm parts cool before packing lunches.
