3 x tomatoes, finely chopped
200g cabbage, finely shredded

Meanwhile heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, then add the garlic and cumin. Cook, stirring for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, and cook, stirring, until thickened (around 8 – 10 minutes).

Spray a chargrill pan with olive oil spray and allow to warm over medium heat. Add the pork cutlets to pan and cook for 3-4 minutes each side or until the pork is just cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover loosely with foil. Set aside for 5 minutes to rest.

While the pork is resting, combine the cabbage, spinach, carrot, corn and coriander in a large bowl. Whisk the honey, 1 tablespoon juice and remaining olive oil in a small bowl. Add to slaw, then toss to combine.

Divide the slaw among 4 bowls. Top with the bean mixture, remove pork from bone and slice then add to the bowl, along with avocado. Serve with yoghurt, extra lime wedges and coriander.

Top with the pickled jalapenos (to taste).
