I pray that everyone in our country and the rest of the world stays safe. It is not an easy time for anybody but more so for the poor. Let’s all be grateful for what we have because there are so many out there that are going to struggle and fight for their lives whilst we sit in the comforts of our homes. Let us all do our bit by staying home so we can save our country from devastation. I know some shops are sold out on most items. We have to grab what we can get because there are some that are stockpiling and left very little for others. Help people if you can. I know we can’t go out but offer to help people near you if they need a hand, especially old people.

We managed to get some vegetable so we good for a few days. Butternut and Sweet Potato are veggies that can last a little longer than most veggies so I got some of that. This Roast Butternut and Sweet Potato can be used in wraps, for soups, as a side, in salads, Buddha bowls. The possibilities are endless. So if you are struggling to get veggies this is something that can work for the next couple of weeks.

Roast Butternut and Sweet Potato is something I use often in our veggie wraps. I add some tomato, cucumber and onion to the wrap with some grilled Halloumi Cheese. You can add some sauce or mayonnaise of your choice and it is absolutely delicious. You can roast the veggies and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

This can be roasted on the stove top too. If I am in a hurry I add a few drops of water and allow it to steam for a little while and turn up the heat a little and allow it to brown a little. Tastes just as delicious.

I do hope you try this recipe. If you need help with recipes or how to cook a certain ingredient feel free to drop me a mail. I will certainly help you if I can.

Stay safe everyone!

    In your video for Durban Lamb Curry at the 25 second mark you are adding something to the pot when the label “Tomatoes” pops up onto the screen. It clearly is a powder and not tomatoes – which you can be seen adding later on. Is it a curry powder?

      Hi Alan! My sincere apologies. I should have double checked. It was an error and it’s definitely not tomatoes. It is a masala that we use, a blend of spices or you can use curry powder or chilli powder. Thank you for bringing it to my attention, I will fix it. Have a lovely weekend:-)
