Roasted spicy sweet plantain and sweet potato chunks


Surprisingly this was a big hit in my instagram when I posted it on the gram a few weeks back. As promised I will provide you all with the recipe for this quick easy meal or snack depending on how much you use.

These are perhaps two of my favourite vegetables so you can tell I eat this regularly. Once you try I’m sure you’ll be in the same position as me. Here’s the recipe….. 


2 medium  sweet potatos

2 fairly ripe plantains

Cold pressed extra olive oil

Himalayan pink salt

Black pepper

Fennel seeds

Chilli powder





Firstly chop up the sweet potato into small chunks so that the plantain can cook simultaneously alongside.

Then slice the plantain and place the two veggies in a bowl


Add 1 tbsp of the olive oil to the bowl and mix or shake well

Then add the spices and herbs and shake or mix well

Prepare you baking tray and lay the food down flat to ensure they cook evenly

Place in the oven at 180-200 degrees Celsius.

Allow to cook for 30-40 minutes keep an eye on them as they burn easily.

These taste great with dips like hummus or salsa feel free to add other veggies or rice.
