Heat the oven to 180°C. In a large heavy based "hob to oven' pan, heat half the oil and gently cook the onion and carrot with the lid on for 8 minutes, then add the garlic and ginger. Cook for a further minute then sprinkle in 2 tbsp of Bart Berbere Blend. Stir until it becomes fragrant.

When cooked, check the seasoning and sprinkle with chopped parsley to serve.
