Sweet Potato Rosti

Great on their own or serve with hummus, pesto or a poached egg on top. Add some sauteed greens on the side for a delicious nutrient dense meal. The sweet potatoes are packed with beta-carotene a fat soluble antioxidant that accumulates in the fatty layer of the skin protecting against ageing and wrinkles.
