Here’s a delicious recipes that makes a perfect, family friendly main meal. These smokey sweet potato and chickpea burgers are super healthy, high protein and with lots of nutritious veggies.

You can serve these burgers alone or in a bun with a crispy salad and some chewy sweet potato fries. Or, just regular potato fries if that’s what floats your boat.

To make delicious sweet potato fries it’s best to pre-boil your cut potato (or stem) until tender but not cooked. Then add to a pan with some hot coconut oil, add some seasoning and bake in the oven until golden and chewy.

The coconut oil really compliments the flavour of sweet potato so it’s a great oil to use. You don’t need to use much if you want to keep calories down and oil to a minimum in your diet.
