This delicious recipe was supplied by SPAR KZN, title sponsor of the SPAR Women’s Race 2017. Watch out, 11 June!

Every woman has a unique story to tell about their own inner beauty, strength and determination. In short, every woman is a Superhero in their own way, says Max Oliva, Managing Director of SPAR KZN. We look forward to welcoming these wonderful SHEroes to this years race where they can showcase their determination and collective energy in one of the most talked about, and certainly the most beautiful, running and walking events in town.

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
