Ingredients

  • 1-2 small sweet potatoes, washed and chopped into cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 big handfuls fresh rocket (arugula), washed
  • 1 tin organic lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • Handful of dried cranberries, roughly chopped

For the Tahini Drizzle:

  • 2 tablespoons tahini paste
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons filtered water
  • Handful fresh chopped herbs (I love parsley and mint)

Preparation

  • 1 Preheat oven to 180°C or 360°F. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • 2 Add the chopped sweet potato to the baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper, sprinkle with cinnamon, then add tray to oven for 30-35 minutes, or until sweet potato is golden and cooked through.
  • 3 Meanwhile, make the tahini drizzle by adding all drizzle ingredients to a bowl and whisking until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 4 Arrange arugula on a serving plate or wooden board then add roasted sweet potato. Spoon over lentils and tahini drizzle. Top with chopped pecans and dried cranberries.
