  1. Preheat to oven to 180 degrees. Chop your sweet potato into small cubes then add them to a tray. Add 1 ½ tbsp of olive oil to the tray, along with your paprika and ground cumin and mix. Pop in the oven to cook for 25 minutes.

  3. Next add in your garlic and cook for a minute more whilst mixing all together.
  4. Add in your red pepper, chopped tomatoes and 200ml of water. Bring this all to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes.
