Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene, some B vitamins and vitamin A. This makes for a good nutritious lunch with a side salad and a drizzle of olive oil or vinaigrette. They’re also excellent in vegetable and lamb curries, especially where an element of sweetness to the curry is welcome, also it’s an ingredient that works well with almonds, sultanas and mild spices.
