Sweet Potato is a traditional american vegetable. It is a good source of vitamin C – the yellow variety is also rich in vitamin A. It has a sweet chestnut-like flavour. Usually peeled after cooking, it can be cooked as an ordinary potato. It can also be added to soups, stews, breads and cakes, due to it’s sweet flavour

This is my favoutite sweet potato dish: Sweet Potato Chips


350g Sweet Potatoes
3 garlic clove, crushed
0.5 teaspoon sea salt
0.5 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
0.5 teaspoon ground coriander


1. Set the oven to 200C/gas 6. Peel the potatoes and cut into ‘fat’ chips.
2. Place the garlic and spices into a bag and shake well together. Place the chips into the bag and toss well with the spices. Lay the chips in an even layer on a baking sheet.
3. Drizzle with oil and place in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden and then serve immediately.
