Sweet Potato & Spring Onion sandwich, is one of the highly nutritious and is absolutely filling if taken in right amount.
Every day, while packing lunch boxes for my children, I try making different variety of sandwiches at least twice a week. But, like any other Mum, mornings, being very busy time of the day, I don’t get enough time to take few snaps. And hence, I end up only few lunch box recipes.
But this day, I decided to make sandwiches for all of us as a brunch. Which made my job simple but completely satisfied our hunger. Gave me ample time for taking the photos too.
Health Benefits of Sweet Potatoes:
Sweet potatoes are a rich source of fibre, vitamins B & C, and minerals including iron, calcium, selenium. One of the key nutritional benefits is that they’re high in beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A once consumed. This, Vitamin-A helps to boost up the immune system and thus lowers the risk of various diseases. (info from internet)
We had these, Sweet Potato & Spring Onion sandwich, with regular tomato ketchup as a dip and freshly sliced oranges & strawberries on the side, so it made a complete meal.
The sweetness of sweet potatoes was not at all visible in taste. The addition of spring onions is played the main role for an entirely new taste & flavour of the sandwich. My kids totally approved and loved them in their lunch boxes too.
