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.
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
- 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.
- 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.
- Add sweet potato, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and gently mix, divide between plates and top with dried cranberries and pepitas to serve.
- 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
- 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
