      I love this as a side or even, with a handful of salad leaves, as a main. It’s spicy, full of flavour and so easy to just bung into the oven and let marinade in all those gorgeous spices.





3 sweet potatoes

4 spicy chorizo cooking sausages

4 garlic cloves

2 tbsp cumin

2 tsp paprika

Sea salt and fresh black pepper

Olive oil



  1. Preheat oven to 200.

  2. Wash and chop your sweet potatoes into nice, meaty chunks. Don’t fret about peeling all the skins off and empty into a nice big pan (you don’t want to crowd everything!).

  3. Take your garlic cloves and chop into thirds. Once again, don’t stress about taking the skins off, you’re not going to be eating these…unless you want to, of course. Disperse garlic in amongst the potatoes.

  4. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle on the cumin and pop in the oven for 20 minutes.

  5. Chop up the chorizo – not too small now – and throw in the pan with potatoes and garlic. Allow to cook for another 20 minutes and, when the potatoes are nice, crisp and tender and the chorizo has a slightly crunchy coating take out the oven.

  6. Season with paprika, salt and pepper. Shake everything up in the pan and serve – gorgeous!
