Spiced-up sweet potatoes make a delicious side dish. This recipe is enough for two, so double it up if you need more (or just want some leftovers!)

You will need:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes (about 300 g each)
  • 1 tsp Coriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano
  • 3/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • 1/8 cup olive oil (regular, not the extra virgin kind)

Peel and cut sweet potatoes into chunks – or whatever shape you prefer. Place into glass microwaveable dish and microwave for 5 minutes – until fork tender (the timing will depend on the strength of your microwave).
