Vegetarians all too often get a ‘raw’ deal, but with Asian spices and sauces they can enjoy a flavour packed meal as much as any meat eater.

Here chick peas and sesame seeds deliver protein and oils to go with all that taste.

If you have the time to cook chick peas from dried you’ll get a better texture but don’t worry if you can’t because canned are fine.
