Brightly-coloured vegetables are key to a healthy and varied diet, which makes sweet potatoes an excellent addition to any meal. Packed with vitamins and nutrients, sweet potato is known as a skin super food due to its high levels of Vitamin A and beta-carotene.
A healthier alternative to the regular potato, let this naturally sweet root vegetable give traditional dishes a modern twist like a cottage pie topped with sweet potato mash or a rack of lamb served with sweet potato gratin.
A great addition to soups and stews, try a spicy lentil and sweet potato stew for a hearty winter dish. Or perk up a salad with creamy sweet potato, like this easy roasted sweet potato and almond salad recipe, which even committed carnivores will love.
