The ingredients of this dish balance each other out wonderfully, but there is always room for making it your own. The sweet potato can be replaced with any other potato, carrots or parsnip. Add some broccoli for a splash of green, or cauliflower if you like it better. Toss it in a pan and you have dinner ready in 30 minutes!
