Okay how many of you don’t eat sweet potatoes 🍠? Raise your hand 🖐

Well I am here to tell you that if it’s not for health reasons, then you should rethink your decision and include this power vegetable into your meals here in out 💪🏾.

Sweet potatoes are high in fibre and contain a good array of vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, selenium. They are a great source of B vitamins and vitamin C. One of the key nutritional benefits of sweet potato is that they’re high in an antioxidant known as beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A once consumed.

This recipe is pretty easy, quick and direct.

What you’ll need :-

~ Sweet potatoes 🍠 1 medium size for single serving and you can keep adding to fit your requirements.

~ I large onion or 2 halves of two different kinds like I did (red and sweet onion)

~ scallions / green onions ( I used 2)

~ 1 medium sized green pepper

~ cauliflower

~ peas

~ a handful of green beans

~ seasoning of choice

~ I added mint leaves 🍁

~ chicken cuts

~ beef cuts

~ beef and chicken stock (home made )

~ garlic fresh and crushed

~ Ginger powder

And anything else you want. I was tempted to add broccoli 🥦 to the mix but my pan was getting full lol.

What to do….

~~~~ Peel and chop up the sweet potatoes (rinse first) and keep this aside.

~ chop up all your veggies (after cleaning them of course)

~ cut your beef and chicken to desirable size.

~ Add veggies to pan with little oil and fry / caramelize the onions, add meat the mix and let cook.

~ When cooked add your veggies and when they start to soften

~ add in your sweet potatoes because it doesn’t take much to cook them.

~ don’t forget to season it 😉

You can make this totally vegan 🌱 by eliminating the meats

Serve as desired and Bon appetite 😋
