Sweet potato roasted with lemon, red onions and spices

This is another recipe from Cafe Collection by Julie le Clerc. It caught my eye as it involves several of my favourite foods - sweet potato, red onions and grainy mustard.

4 medium kumara (sweet potato), peeled
2 lemons, cut into wedges
2 red onions, peeled and cut into wedges

1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp fresh thyme
1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
4 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
  • Preheat oven to 200C.
  • Cut kumara into small wedges, and par boil for 2 minutes.
  • Drain well. Place kumara, onions. garlic cloves, lemon, and bay leaves in a roasting dish.
  • Mix remaining ingredients together, and pour over vegetables. Toss well to coat.
  • Roast for 20-30 minutes until kumara tender and golden brown.
