Sweet potatoes with spicy chickpeas and tzatziki



3 large sweet potatoes

1 can of chickpeas

1 can of tomatoes

1 onion

Salt, pepper

½ tsp turmeric

½ tsp chilli flakes

½ tsp oregano

Smoked paprika

Olive oil


Heat the oven to 180 degrees C.

Wash and halve the sweet potatoes, with a sharp knife slightly cut the surface of the potatoes (they will bake quicker), add salt, pepper, a little olive oil and smoked paprika.

Place on a baking tray and pop into the oven for 20-25 minutes.

In the meantime, drain the chickpeas and rinse them well in cold water. Dice the onion, fry it for 2-3 minutes, then add the chickpeas and spices, simmer for a while and then add the tomatoes. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes.

Remove the potatoes from the oven. With a spoon fluff the potato inside its skin. Spoon the chickpeas and tzatziki on top of the baked and fluffed sweet potato.
