This week we’ve teamed up with American Sweet Potato to celebrate International Sweet Potato Week and bring you a selection of utterly delicious sweet potato recipes.
As you know sweet potatoes are a big favourite for me when cooking for the family because not only do they taste delicious but they have great nutritional benefits too – rich in vitamin A and C, most of the B vitamins, they also contain iron, calcium, selenium and are high in the antioxidant beta-carotene, as well as being a great source of fibre.
Our delicious vegan sweet potato chilli or chilli non carne if you like and it’s super simple to make and tastes so good! I use the Gran Luchito cooking pastes they give amazing flavour to the dish.
