  • Tsp of chilli powder
  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • Any other vegetables that you like (I used aubergine, broccoli, carrot and celery)

Instructions:

  • Chop the onion and garlic and sauté in the oil on a low heat for about 2 minutes
  • Peel and chop the sweet potato and all the other vegetables
  • Sauté the sweet potato until it starts to soften, then add the other veg and continue until these also start to soften
  • Add the tin of tomatoes, vegetable stock, tsp of chilli, 1/2 tsp of sugar and oregano and basil to taste, then simmer until the sweet potato and all the other vegetables are fully soft (usually about 20 minutes)

  • Serve with potato, rice, couscous or quinoa – it’s also tasty with a dollop of natural yoghurt or sour cream on top
