I’ve been doing a bit of cooking recently and thought I’d share some of my recipes. As much as I love spending time cooking proper meals, sometimes there just isn’t the time (or energy). So this is a quick and easy meal with gorgeous flavours that are perfect for winter.
First, dice a sweet potato. The smaller you dice, the quicker you eat… Drizzle with oil and roast at 200C for 10-15 mins.
Throw chopped cherry tomatoes, some sliced chorizo, half a chopped chilli (less if you want it less hot), garlic (I use pre-crushed stuff from a tube), and a squiggle of tomato purée into a pan with some oil. I added a dash of BBQ sauce and some Cajun spices at this point, but this is optional.
Once the tomatoes have softened, add in the roasted sweet potato. While the flavours mix, warm up a pitta bread.
Top your pitta with a handful of rocket, then the sweet potato & chorizo mix. Scatter with crumbled feta. Enjoy!
The sweet potato and chorizo go beautifully together with a bit of spice, the rocket adds a crisp peppery note, and the creamy feta takes the edge off. Such a great combo!
The longest part is waiting for the sweet potato to roast. You could microwave the diced potato to move things along quicker, but I like to think taking the longer route gives a warmer flavour.
