Spiced Sweet Potato & Couscous Salad

A delicious and satisfying salad with the wonderful flavours of the Caribbean.


On a baking tray toss the sweet potato with the Caribbean Seasoning, the thyme, garlic and coconut oil. Roast in the oven for about 30 minutes or until tender and starting to caramelise.

Meanwhile make up the couscous according to the packet instructions and fluff with a fork.

In a large serving bowl mix the couscous with the kidney beans, spring onion, coriander, red pepper, scotch bonnet chilli and lime zest. Toss through the roasted sweet potato.

Serve with a simple dressing made by whisking together the lime juice, olive oil, and honey. Perfect with chicken or fish or in its own
