    Thanks we really enjoy this meal. We have also served it with rice and yoghurt as you suggested and it fed lots of people! We tend to need to cook it for an extra 5-10 mins till the sweet potato is cooked.

    Yum! Will be making this again. I had to use potatoes because I didn't have sweet potato and it was great. Wondering what other veggies could be added..might try a few next time Thanks

    Fantastic mid week meal! I did have to cook mine about 8 mins longer as my sweet potatoes were still crunchy after 20mins - even though I cut them quite small.
