Sweet potato is high in fibre, very filling and has a delicious sweet taste. These are roasted and stuffed with rich smoky lentils and served with a scrunched kale slaw.
1. Set oven to 220ºC.
Place lentils in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Drain and rinse.

2. Halve sweet potatoes lengthways. Rub with 1 tbsp oil, season with salt and pepper. Roast, cut side down, for 20-25 minutes, or until just tender.

3. Julienne or grate the carrots. Thinly slice kale leaves. Roughly chop parsley. Toss all together.

4. Mash avocado with 1 tbsp vinegar and 2 tbsp olive oil. Add to slaw and use hands to scrunch until well coated and kale leaves are tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

5. Heat a frypan over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp oil. Dice onion and celery, add to pan as you go. Add corn kernels, 2 tsp paprika, 3 tsp cumin and tomato paste. Cook for 4 minutes, or until softened. Stir through cooked lentils and 1/2 cup water. Season with salt and pepper.

6. Slash each sweet potato, gently push flesh down with a fork. Fill with lentils. Serve with a side of kale slaw and a dollop of yoghurt.

Notes:
Scrunching the kale will help tenderise the leaves.
