Sweet Potato & Tomato Casserole

This chunky sweet potato and tomato casserole was inspired by a recipe I saw on Jamie Oliver’s Superfoods TV show. This recipe is a fabulous and delicious way to get vitamin A rich sweet potatoes into your diet.

I love the positive work that Jamie Oliver is doing to make people aware of the harm that sugar does to children and adults alike and is campaigning for a tax on sugary drinks. You can sign his petition here
