1 large Sweet Potato
1 large Courgette
2 tbsp Sunflower oil
2 Medium Onions, halved and sliced
2 Garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp Ground cumin
1 tsp Smoked paprika
400g can chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato purée

You will also need a large ‘lasagne’ style oven proof dish.
Preheat the oven to 220C/Fan 200C/Gas 7
Prep all the vegetables by peeling the sweet potato and cutting into roughly 2.5cm chunks, trim the courgette and cut into 1cm slices.
Heat the oil in a large non-stick saucepan or deep frying pan. Gently fry the onions for 5 minutes, stirring often, until softened and lightly browned. Add the garlic, cumin and paprika and cook out whilst stirring for 1 minute
Pour the tomatoes into the pan, refill the can with water and add this to the pan. Stir in the tomato purée, bay leaves and sweet potato. Bring to the boil, cover and cook for 15 minutes
Stir in the pulses and courgette and bring the mixture back to a simmer for 2 minutes.
Season to taste with salt and pepper
Pour the mix into your oven proof dish and top with layers of the Southern Fried potatoes ensuring that all is completely covered.
Bake for about 40 minutes until the potatoes are browned and the filling is bubbling.
