Recipe: Moroccan Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

There are a few reasons why we are loving sweet potatoes this spring! Not only are sweet potatoes readily available, inexpensive and tasty, but they also have a number of health benefits which make them more nutritionally awesome than ordinary white potatoes.

Some of the great (and tasty) benefits include:

  • High in vitamin B6 which is needed for brain function, serotonin production (for mood) and melatonin production to help regulate our body clock.
  • High in fibre so you feel fuller longer. They contain almost twice as much fibre as any other potato.
  • Great source of vitamin C which is great for immunity, digestion, collagen production, and helping your body fight toxins.
  • High in carotenoids (better known as Vitamin A) which are very important and potent antioxidants. They are used internally to help protect your skin from the sun by both reflecting and reparing cell damage. One medium sweet potato provides enough Vitamin A for your body’s recommended daily allowance and then some!
  • High in iron, potassium and manganese

Sweet potatoes are also very versatile, great for roast dinners, spring salads and general baking.

So, to help you enjoy these healthy potatoes here is a spring recipe that requires minimal time and ingredients so that you can get the best out of you and the most out of your spring! Happy lunching 🙂
