    **Jubes**'s Note:

    This is a great vegetarian slice. Made with sweet potato (aka kumera). A regular onion is called for in this recipe- any onion will do. It travels well for picnics and is firm enough to be eaten with your hands. Its great warm or cold. Check that the pesto and yogurt used are gluten free if you require a gluten free diet

      Made exactly as directed, other than that we don't get the really orange sweet potato here, so I didn't benefit from the attractive colour!!!! Nutritious and delicious, this made a good supper and I kept the extra for office lunches, yum! I didn't use the baking paper, and I used a rocket (arugula) pesto that I had purchased in our local market, very nice!! Simply prepared, I very much enjoyed this, thank you Jubes!

      This was a different sort of taste combination for me, and it was really good! I loved the addition of sun-dried tomato pesto. Yum. I did substitute sour cream for the yogurt, and used two whole eggs and the rest egg whites. My translation for the Americans~ For the orange sweet potatoes use yams, not what we call sweet potatoes. Parchment paper is the same as baking paper. I used a 9x11 pan. By my calculations, that gives 6 more square inches, so I just measured everything with a slightly heavy hand. Thanks for posting!

      This was really tasty! I steamed the sweet potatoes, and gently fried the onions and pine nuts in the oil. Dave says he's having the leftovers for breakfast - like they'll still be there in the morning! Thanks for a fab recipe!
