Start with the roast butternut. Preheat the oven to 200º C. Grease and line a baking sheet with foil. Spread the butternut onto the tray and drizzle with olive oil.

Season with the mixed spice, salt and pepper. Roast for about 40 -45 minutes until cooked through and tinged golden around the edges.

To make the chickpeas, heat the olive oil in a frying pan. Toss in the chickpeas and cook on a medium high heat for about 6-8 minutes. Add all the aromatics and continue to cook for several more minutes.

For the goat's cheese truffles, simply roll teaspoon amounts of goat's cheese into balls and toss lightly in the toasted sesame seeds. Cover and chill to firm up until needed.

To assemble the flatbreads, start with a warmed flatbread as the base. Layer up with lettuce, rocket, butternut and beetroot. Scatter over a handful of chickpeas, followed by sliced radishes, pumpkin seeds and pomegranate arils. Dollop on spoonfuls of beetroot and feta pâté and finish with several goat's truffles and serve straight away.
