I love sweet potato and so healthy for a diabetic - this is a very simple recipe when you need a quick side dish.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 700 g kumara (sweet potato cut into 3 cm pieces)
  • 1 12 tablespoons vegetable oil (or olive oil)
  • 12 cup parsley (flat leaf coarsely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons chives (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 220C (200C fan forced).
  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper and place kumara on prepared tray and drizzle with half the oil and bake for 20 minutes or until tender.
  3. Combine kumara with remaining ingredients in a medium bowl.

I liked this a lot, Mr Grumpy was not as pleased (he was hoping for fries). I like even a plain cooked sweet potato with just a little butter or sour cream, so these were up my alley. I might add some cayenne or something to spice it up for Mr Grumpy next time. It did take a little longer to cook, but perhaps I cut mine a bit large.

Very nice! We love roasted sweet potatoes and the fresh chives and parsley add such a nice contrast to the roast potatoes. Made as written and will make again. Thanks so much for the post.
