Ingredients

4 large sweet potatoes, well washed

6 tbs olive oil – or other oil

1 TBS ground cumin

Pinch of crushed red chilies (optional)

4 green onions, finely sliced

3 tomatoes, chopped into large pieces

Bunch of fresh basil leaves, torn into large pieces

1 1/3 cups feta cheese, crumbled

¼ cup of mixed seeds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Chop the sweet potatoes into pieces just larger than bite size. Toss with 3 tbs of the oil, salt, pepper, cumin and chilies.

  4. Combine the green onions, basil and tomatoes in a medium size bowl.
  5. Dress with the balsamic vinegar and the remaining oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Place the sweet potatoes into a serving bowl. Top with the tomato mixture and then the cheese and seeds.
