Shelina Permalloo's Griddled Sweet Potatoes
with Mint, Chilli and Smoked Garlic
We stumbled across this delicious sweet potato recipe on Pinterest (you can find our Vegetarian & Vegan board there too) and thought it looked too delicious not to share! Taken from Shelina Permalloo's "The Sunshine Diet", this is a great crowd-pleaser and ideal if you need to make use of a few leftover sweet potatoes lurking in the cupboard. This recipe is all in the dressing - you can use raw garlic if you want the dish to pack a punch (and don't fancy your chances of a smooch later), or smoked garlic for a gentle BBQ bite. Add cloves, fresh mint, red chilli, virgin olive oil and sherry vinegar for a mouthwatering dressing. Want to add your own twist to it? Why not try feta and pomegranate seeds for a Mediterranean remix?

Falafel is a simply delicious alternative to your basic burger, packed full of fibre thanks to the hero ingredient - the humble chickpea.

All you need is a couple of cans of chickpeas, a red onion, garlic, parsley, cumin, coriander, flour, salt and harissa paste to make 16 super tasty falafel burgers to enjoy hot or cold. Simply fry for 3 minutes or barbecue until golden for some tasty meat-free nosh at your next BBQ.
