Not just a treat for the eyes, these vibrant purple sweet potatoes are a nutritional powerhouse. Their colour comes from a rich concentration of antioxidants (the same ones found in blueberries). On top of that, they’re packed with vitamins A and C, potassium and fibre.

Their flesh is slightly denser and flourier than standard sweet potatoes, but the sweet, comforting flavour is the same. To really set them off, add something fresh and zingy, like garlic, lime, ginger or herbs.
