Sweet Potato Salad

  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • mixed herbs
  • garlic
  • olive oil
  • 4 tbsp pinenuts
  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach
  • 250g cottage cheese

Cut sweet potato into small cubes, mix in bowl with herbs, garlic and olive oil (enough to coat potato entirely). Place sweet potato on oven tray and put in 200 degree oven for approximately 30 minutes (enough to create a soft, yet roasted texture to the potato).

To roast pinenuts: place pinenuts on oven tray in hot oven for approximately 5 minutes (keep an eye on them because they easily burn).

Place baby spinach, cottage cheese, potato and pinenuts in a bowl. Mix together gently and serve.

Sweet potato can be made prior, however don’t mix all ingredients until ready to serve. This will keep the salad fresh.
