They’re a breakfast, lunch and dinner favourite. They’re a sumptuous carb source, and not only this they are packed full of nutritional value, boasting a brilliant source of beta carotene. Several recent studies have shown the superior ability of sweet potatoes to raise our blood levels of vitamin A, and not only this, they are also a brilliant source of dietary fibre, vitamin B6 and potassium.
All hail, the sweet potato.
Here’s how we like to celebrate it’s greatness, stuffing in all we can to twice the baked spud…
Beef Mince, Peas, Sweetcorn and Cheddar
Ingredients (Serves 2)
2 Sweet Potatoes
1tsp Rapeseed Oil
300g Lean Beef Mince
2tsp Smoked Paprika
1 Reduced Beef Stock Cube
Glug Red Wine (optional)
Pinch Sea Salt
Cracked Black Pepper
50g Frozen Peas
50g Frozen Sweetcorn
20g Cheddar
Recipe:
Warm the oil in a saucepan on a medium to high heat, once hot add the mince and paprika, stir until browned.
Dissolve the stock cube in around 250ml boiling water and add to the mince once browned. Also add the wine, salt and pepper. Leave to simmer.
Stab a few holes in the sweet potatoes and microwave until soft (5-8mins)
3mins before serving add the peas and sweetcorn, cook until warm through.
Cut open your potatoes (they will be very hot be careful!). Fill with mince and top with grated cheddar.
Spicy Avocado, Cherry Tomatoes and Feta
Ingredients (Serves 2)
2 Sweet Potatoes
1 Large Avocado
Pinch Sea Salt
Cracked Black Pepper
Pinch Chilli Flakes
1/2 Lemon (Juice)
8 Cherry Tomatoes
20g Feta
Recipe:
Stab a few holes in the sweet potatoes and microwave until soft (5-8mins)
Mash your avocado with sea salt, pepper, lemon juice and chilli flakes
Slice your tomatoes into quarters
Cut open your potatoes (they will be very hot be careful!). Stuff with avocado mix and top with tomatoes and feta.
Notes:
If you have the time you can bake your potatoes at 180c for 50mins, or until soft through. We highly recommend this as it makes them sweet and almost caramel like.
