New Recipe: Baked Sweet Potato

Our Slow Cooked Pork with Chilli Brussel Sprouts was such a hit, we decided to come up with another way for you to use up your leftovers and create a tasty gut-friendly sweet potato dish. We are all about making the most out of leftovers here at TNN, so we thought we’d show you how to put a tasty spin on them. And besides, who doesn’t love sweet potato?

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, skin on
  • 2 tablespoons cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 200g Tuscan kale, roughly chopped
  • 1 carrot, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 tablespoons sauerkraut
