sweet potatoes and cous cous

This is a simple yet rich tomatoey sweet potato and carrot stew which works very well with cous cous.  In fact I would serve everything with cous cous if I could, I'm just simply addicted to it.

A soft hint of cumin brings out the sweetness in the carrots and the potatoes making this an all round mid-week family favourite.

Maybe a little healthy for some but try it, it may surprise you.

 Serves 2

You'll need:
  • 3 sweet potatoes, chopped (skin on for more roughage)
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 cup cous cous
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 Tbs olive oil


1) Saute the onion in olive oil till transparent.
2) Add the carrots, sweet potatoes, tomatoes and cumin and simmer for approx 20 - 30 mins.
3) Pour the boiling water over the cous cous and leave to stand for approx 10 mins, serve with the stew and enjoy.
