Veg Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, A perfe superfood supper for two.

No comments:

This dish is great for mid week suppers when we all feel a little tired after work to get involved with anything too complicated but don't want to turn to the ready meal isle.

 It is also a great veggie option for those all important meat free suppers and it is pretty colourful too!

Sweet potatoes are a fantastic superfood, they are packed full of goodness and when spruced up with colourful veg and sprinkled with a little salt they become extremely delicious too. 

These giant orange veg are packed with vitamin A and are also rich in antioxidants so anyway you can get them into your diet is great. 

I normally do one sweet potato per person, so to serve 4 you will need...

4 sweet potato
1/2 red cabbage 
6 spring onions 
2 red chillies 
1 red pepper 
1 pack of feta, crumbled 
few black sesame seeds for decoration

Start by pricking your sweet potatoes all over with a fork, place in a hot oven (200C) for 40/45 minutes. 

Now if you have a mandolin you can slice up all your veg quickly and easily. If you are a little uneasy about using this elaborate tool you must buy a cut resistant glove, they give you great confidence in using a mandolin and will make the chore of chopping veg a thing of the past, you will never look back!

I use this  mandolin

Slice (or chop if you are not yet a mandolin user) the red cabbage, spring onion, red pepper and red chillies. 

Crumble up your feta and set to once side. 

Now carefully take your sweet potatoes out of the oven and slice them in half and start to assemble with all your sliced veg, top with feta and sprinkle with black sesame seeds

Enjoy mid week for a superfood, colourful health kick.
