We have a serious addiction to sweet potatoes (known as Kumara down-under) and are always on the lookout for exciting new ways to use our favourite root veggie. We were intrigued by the peanut butter in this recipe and it’s firmly on our ‘to cook’ list for next week. As always, the trick here is to use a good quality nut butter, as unprocessed as possible (we love Meridian and Biona).
