Roasted Sweet Potato Rice Salad is not your standard summer salad.

It is delicious in the summer but this one is also great for those colder months when you just need something to warm your belly.

If I may add, it’s also a great recipe to whip up if you’re in dire need of something healthy and light after all the heavy meals you munched on during the holidays!


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.

  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

  3. Place sweet potato in bowl and spray with oil.

  4. Sprinkle with coriander and toss to combine. Season with pepper.

  5. Place, in a single layer, on prepared tray. Spray with oil.

  6. Roast for 20-25 mins or until tender.
