The perfect fast meal when you want some green and some colour for the kids to get their chops round. But with lots of taste. Crunchy, tasty and packed with a host of vitamins and minerals. Sweet potato was a traditional treatment for diabetes as they're great for stabilising blood sugar with loads of Vit C for immune systems too. And the hero, turmeric in here too adds a glorious colour, taste and an incredible super powerful antioxidant and anti inflammatory, with a potency that has been compared to drugs such as hydrocortisone. A joy to watch children gobbling up so much spinach!

These can be made ahead and freeze well too.
