I love this recipe by Clove Co.com, it’s jam-packed with vitamins, minerals beta carotene and iron. It’s the perfect pick-me-up and very simple and quick to make.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2


  • 450g sweet potatoes
  • 20g parsley, roughly chopped
  • 15g coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 a red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of salt
  • Good grind of black pepper
  • 200ml good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 30g feta cheese, crumbled


  1. Peel the sweet potatoes and chop them into rounds about 1/2 a cm thick. Put into a pan, cover with boiling water and simmer over a medium heat for 9-10 minutes until soft. You want to be able to pierce them with a sharp knife with ease.
  2. While the sweet potatoes are cooking, prepare your lemon and herb oil. Roughly chop the herbs and add to a bowl with the onion, salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice. Stir together until incorporated.
  3. When the sweet potatoes are cooked, strain off the water and then lay them out in a large bowl or plate. Cover with the herb oil and then crumble over the feta cheese. Serve either warm or set aside and serve cold a little later.
