I love the taste of sweet potatoes, as well as tasting great they are are rich in complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber and vitamins. This recipe also has another of my favourite flavours; chorizo. The smokey taste of the chorizo sausage and paprika perfectly compliments the sweetness of the potato.

Just be careful when you are buying the chorizo sausage as some chorizo has milk powder in it but you can get dairy free chorizo from most supermarkets.




  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • handful of cherry tomatoes
  • 2 small chorizo sausages (check they are dairy free)
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • salt and pepper for seasoning
