1. Get your veg and onion prepped. Set aside.
2. Use a cheese grater, chop or blitz the bread to make fine crumbs. Mix with the garlic, salt, almonds, chilli, cinnamon and cumin.
3. Over medium heat, toast the mix in a dry frying pan till golden. Drizzle in a little olive oil. Stir and cook till crisp. Cool. Mix in the parsley.
4. For the veg, get your wok or large frying pan really hot. Sizzle the onions in a little oil. Toss in the firmer veg, as it cooks slower. Add the softer veg towards the end.
5. Stir throughout. Drizzle in oil, if needed. Season as you go - add cumin, chilli, salt and pepper and a few slices of chorizo, if you fancy.
