Throw in whatever you like to liven up your brunch. If you are feeling a bit more adventurous then spice it up with whatever you fancy – why not add tomatoes with a dash of chipotle for a Mexican twist or even some fish sauce, coriander and sriracha to make the dish have a South-East Asian taste. The possibilities and flavours are endless! Whatever you decide to cook up don’t forget to share the pictures of your recipe creations with @parkrunuk and @coopuk.
