    Sweet Potato Squares

    Forget “brinner” (breakfast for dinner) and get your egg on at lunchtime. Get double the protein power with eggs and tofu. While sweet potatoes rank higher on the glycemic index, pairing them with protein helps keep insulin levels from shooting through the roof.

    Flavour tip

    For robust, rich, deep flavour, roast the sweet potato; don’t steam or boil it.
