Used as a side dish for grilled meat or eaten on its own as a hearty vegetarian meal, this is a great mix of vitamins, minerals and fibre to keep you fighting fit on the road.

Ingredients:

1 large sweet potato, cut into 2cm pieces

½ red onion, peeled, sliced

1 bag of tender baby kale

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon honey

1 packet of ready cooked mixed grains

½ cup dried cranberries

½ cup pepita seeds

Method:

  1. Cover sweet potato with water in a large pot and bring to the boil. Turn heat down and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until cooked but not falling apart, drain well and set aside.
  2. Heat a pan over medium heat, add grains to the pan along with the vinegar and honey, season well with salt and pepper. Stir to warm through, remove from heat.
  3. Add sweet potato, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and gently mix, divide between plates and top with dried cranberries and pepitas to serve.

Serves 2-3

TIPS:

  • Sweet potato is packed with fibre and vitamins, it is also a great veggie to have on the road as it stores really well at ambient temperatures
  • If making this dish at home instead of on the road, roast the sweet potato instead of boiling
  • This dish makes a great lunch on the road as well, make it fresh in the morning before you head off

SUBSTITUTES:

  • Pumpkin can be used in place of sweet potato – make sure not to overcook it or it will fall apart
  • Any nuts, seeds and dried fruit you have on hand will work, a trial mix is great
