Warm Sweet Potatoes

Winter is here and all I want to eat at this time of the year is soup and curries.

A while back my friend shared a delicious green bean salad with me. I love it, it’s fresh and crunchy and has a generous sprinkle of almonds – just perfect for summer.

Now I have made this for winter – using green beans (some people call them string beans) and sweet potato. Something warm and yummy for the winter months.


Cook the sweet potatoes (cut in small pieces) first as they take little longer and then add the beans, so they are still left a bit crunchy. Add a little bit of salt.

Put in your serving dish and squeeze one whole juicy lemon. Drizzle with a little olive oil. Add a large amount of sunflower seeds. Why large? Casue I ♥ love ♥ sunflower seeds. These little seeds are gifts from the beautiful sunflower – they are very low in Cholesterol and Sodium. High in vitamin E, very high in phosphorus and potassium. Good source of calcium and magnesium. They just yum so add lots of them to this dish.

And enjoy served warm with lentil bake or bobotie!

Delicious. Low GI. Perfect for Sabbath lunch or mother’s day lunch 🙂 coming up this Sunday in SA….if you feel like cooking
