3 Ways To Cook Sweet Potato


sweet potatoes

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


  • 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


  • 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


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


  • 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


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


  • 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!
