Sweet Potato and Piri Piri Prawns

I’ve discovered an amazing recipe with Sweet Potato’s that I need to share with you. You’ll thank me for this one I promise, especially now that the evenings are getting darker and colder. This is a proper tummy warming dinner and, yep I’m going to put it out there, it’s even pretty healthy (ish!) too. I do love sweet potato’s but other than chips, wedges or mash, I’m never sure what else to do with them, then I found this recipe. I’ve tweaked the original version slightly, adding in some more vegetables and chorizo. You could add in more veggies if you wanted, maybe some cooked cherry tomato’s,  but this is quite a filling dish so you really don’t need much else.
