My reading of it is the five vegetables are across the three required courses.

Regardless, bacon can be whatever it damn well chooses to be – fruit, vegetable, legume – it’s earned a place not only at the top of the food pyramid, but throughout it, as an honorary member of all food groups.

I may be a tad slow, but is bacon a vegetable? Because I can’t see any of the five vegetables required in the rules in that dish. There’s a tiny green garnish, but the rest looks rather fibre-free to my feeble, carrot-infested eyes.

I’d be interested in hearing what the filling is.
