Hi friends, now that I told you about the benefits of sweet potato, I am sharing a recipe too. It is fairly simple and delicious. This recipe was published in Prevention magazine, but I have modified it a bit. Hope you all enjoy it.

This is a very healthy recipe. Vegetarians can experiment with soya granules instead of chicken. Also if you don’t have different coloured bell peppers, use 1 capsicum only.
