    You ever buy a big bag of sweet potato and then don’t know what to do with it? Don’t worry we do the same thing- so here are a few ideas-

    Satay Sweet Potato Curry

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
    • 1 onion (chopped)
    • 2 garlic cloves (grated)
    • 2 tablespoons of Thai red curry paste
    • 1 tablespoon of peanut butter (smooth)
    • 500g of sweet potato (cut into chunks)
    • 400ml canned coconut milk
    • 200g of spinach
    • Cooked rice

    Method

    • On a medium heat melt some coconut oil in a saucepan and begin to fry the onions. After frying in the pan for 5 minutes add the grated garlic. Cook for a further one minute until the scent becomes potent.

     

    • Next mix in the Thai red curry paste, the peanut butter and the sweet potato. Once those ingredients have cooked you can add the coconut milk and 200ml of water.

     

    • Bring to a boil then turn the temperature down, cover the curry mixture and leave to cook & simmer for 20-30 minutes.

     

    • Before lifting out, add the spinach and leave to cook for a further minute. Serve on a bed of rice and enjoy your vegan sweet potato curry!

     

    Sweet Potatoes Hash

    Ingredients

    • 1 ripe avocado
    • Tbsp (1) of olive oil
    • 1 red onion
    • 2 sweet potatoes (spiralised into thin noodles)
    • 2 eggs

    Method

    • First you need to smash the avocado with a fork leaving some chunky pieces. Drizzle the oil in a non-stick frying pan on a medium heat.

     

    • Fry the onions for 5 minutes until they soft and browned, then add in the sweet potato. Season with salt and pepper. Cook what is in the pan for 10-15 minutes until the sweet potato has gone soft and crispy at the edges.

     

    • Make 2 spaces in the pan to crack and add the eggs in. Cook the eggs in the pan until the whites have cooked and the yolk is runny.

     

    • Finally add the avocado on top, serve and enjoy your scrummy sweet potato hash.

     

    Sweet potato fries

    Ingredients

    • 3 sweet potatoes (chopped into fries)
    • Salt
    • Pepper
    • Tablespoon of olive oil

    Method

    • This is an easy recipe. Line your baking tray so the fries don’t stick to the tray. Preheat the oven to 180˚.

     

    • Place the cut sweet potatoes in the baking tray and drizzle oil, salt and pepper onto before baking.

     

    • Final step is to place in the oven to bake for 20 minutes, then bon appetite!
