Serves 2 people


  • 1 x Medium Kumara (sweet potato) or 2 Parsnips
  • 1 x Large Leek
  • 1 x Large Broccoli


  • Coconut oil
  • 1 x Onion
  • 6 x large cloves of garlic
  • 1 x Capsicum
  • Garlic Shoots
  • Tomato paste 250gm
  • Cumin powder
  • Oregano herb
  • Paprika powder
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Turmeric powder
  • Soy Sauce
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Honey


Scrub the Sweet potato and oven bake in Jacket for 45 minutes at 180 Celsius. While the Sweet potato is baking finely slice leek and dice broccoli and place in a saucepan with only 2cm of water. You will want to simmer the saucepan for about 10 minutes and time this in with the Sweet Potato.

Salsa method:
On the side, dice the onion, garlic shoots, and garlic and place in a frying pan with 2 Tbsp of Coconut oil (or cold-pressed olive oil). Saute while adding the herbs to your taste. This will create a kind of curry paste. Gently blend in 1 Tbsp honey, 1 Tbsp vinegar, and 1 Tbsp soya sauce, then add the tomato paste and diced capsicum. Add a little water until you get the consistency of salsa you prefer.

You are now ready to serve.

Perfect for:

Stupendous Sweet Potato: 
Sweet potatoes pack a powerful nutritional punch. The average sweet potato contains over 400% of your daily needs for vitamin A, more than any other food including beef liver, spinach, and carrots. Vitamin A is essential for the proper function of the retinal cells in the eyes. That’s where the old saying “Eat your carrots and you will be able to see in the dark” originated. Now you can tell your children to “Eat your sweet potato” as well.
