Jamie Oliver Dressed Potatoes

A mixture of sweet potato, potato, feta, chilli and coriander finished with a squeeze of lemon.

So, it took me a lot longer to make Piri Piri Chicken from Jamie Oliver's 30 Minute Meals book, but hey ho, it was so worth it!

By the way, in his book, he also manages to rustle up some Portuguese Tarts as well.

Serve these with Jamie's Piri Piri chicken. Although these 'dressed potatoes' as he calls them can be served with whatever takes your fancy.

Sweet potatoes are a starchy, sweet-tasting root vegetable with thin, brown skin on the outside and coloured flesh inside. The most common colour inside is orange but some varieties are white, purple or even yellow.

You can eat sweet potatoes whole or peeled, and the leaves of the plant are edible, too.

One of your Five a Day

80g of sweet potato, or about one medium potato, counts towards one of your five-a-day, unlike white potato which does not.
