Pum recommends…Simple Suppers

Whenever I have to have a later dinner (and by later I mean after 7.30pm because I’m clearly a pensioner and like to eat my dinner at 5pm!) I try to make it a bit lighter.

One of my favourite ingredients to do this with is sweet potato.  Sweet potatoes are a great source of vitamins and minerals (vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, potassium, fibre, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and phosphorus…just from a quick scan!), they are filling but never leave me feeling uncomfortably full!

A really quick and simple late night dinner is mashed sweet potato with half an avocado and a bit scoop of cottage cheese.  Top with a sprinkle of smoked paprika and a generous amount of cracked black pepper and you’ve got yourself a satisfying meal that takes no time at all to prepare.

Fancy something for after?  Try following with an easy dessert of grilled peaches with toasted walnuts and greek yoghurt drizzled in honey or agave syrup.  Simply put the peaches until the grill until you see the juices bubbling and lightly toast the walnuts in a dry pan (being careful not to burn).  Easy and delicious!
