Simple sweet potato salad

Mindfulness Factors | easy | healthy | 5 ingredients or packets | 20 minute meal | plant-based | vegan | dairy-free | refined sugar-free


⁃ Pack of 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes

⁃ 180g couscous & 250ml boiling water

⁃ Handful of sultanas, rough-chopped

⁃ Handful of basil, rough chopped

⁃ Sunflower seeds, to sprinkle (optional)


⁃ Carefully add the sweet potato to a pan of boiling water and cook for 10-15 mins, or until tender then drain

⁃ Make the couscous while the veg cooks. Wash in a fine sieve then add to a large bowl with the sultanas and 250ml boiling water (or veg stock if you prefer). After 10 minutes fluff it up with a fork. If it’s too dry add 2tbsp water and 1tbsp olive oil and stir. Cover with a plate and fluff again when you are ready to serve

⁃ When the potatoes are ready add them to a serving bowl with the couscous, toss to combine and sprinkle over with the basil and sunflower seeds. If you fancy a more filling meal, simply add a drained 400g tin of barlotti beans. Serve this dish family-style alongside other salad-y bits’n’bobs. I hope you enjoy and let me know if you make it x
