1 Chilli-Lime Sweet Potato Rice Salad

Preheat the oven to 240°C/ 220°C (fan)/ 475°F/ Gas 9

Cut the sweet potatoes into large bite-sized pieces (skins on), add them to a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season generously with salt 

Place the tray in the oven for 25 min or until they're cooked through and starting to crisp

2 Chilli-Lime Sweet Potato Rice Salad

Meanwhile, rinse the brown rice, add it to a pot with plenty of cold water and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cook for 15-20 min or until tender with a slight bite

Meanwhile, add the cashew nuts and pumpkin seeds to a separate baking tray

Put them in the oven for 7 min or until slightly darkened in colour 

Once toasted, remove the nuts and seeds and set aside to cool

Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic 

Peel the ginger (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate)

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

5 Chilli-Lime Sweet Potato Rice Salad

Combine the chopped garlic, chopped ginger, chopped chilli (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and soy sauce in a small bowl with 2 tsp [3 tsp] sugar (preferably brown) and 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] olive oil

Halve and juice the lime[s] straight into the bowl and whisk it all together – this is your dressing
