Who would have thought that a jacket sweet potato, dressed with olives and a chilli coriander sauce could taste so good?

I must say, I do love a baked spud, topped with raw salad and cashew sour cream, but when it comes to a baked sweet potato, I am not as big a fan. But, this recipe from Hetty McKinnon’s book ‘Family’ totally hits it out of the park!!!

Blessings to Hetty (from arthur street kitchen) for her delicious creation – it’s not only delicious, but also light, flavoursome, and nutritious.

 Versatile and Delicious

The chilli coriander sauce is super easy, and it can be used to dress the baked sweet potato (as in Hetty’s book) or you can equally pour it over a salad.

 Coriander Goodness

Now, I will be the first to admit that I am not a huge fan of coriander (cilantro). But, when it is used correctly (in small doses) I really do enjoy it. Not only that, but it is also packed with nature’s goodness.

It is known for helping to safely carry heavy metals out of the body. Something we could all do with some help with, no doubt. It is wonderful for reducing bad (LDL) cholesterol and raising good (HDL) cholesterol and is often used in juices and smoothies for its healing properties.
