Jacket Sweet Potato with Dhal and Pomegranate

Hi everyone! I hope you’re managing to stay warm! Here in Bath, it’s snowing pretty heavily, which is a rare occurrence round these parts. The last big snowfall was in 2013, which I recorded here on the blog, along with a recipe that’s just perfect for this kind of weather… Sweet Chestnut Casserole with Herby Dumplings. I can’t believe that was five years ago already!

Well today, I have another comfort food recipe for you… Jacket Sweet Potato with Dhal and Pomegranate. It’s such a beautiful dish, packed full of flavours and colours, as well as lots of immune-boosting nutrients.

The inspiration for the dish came from the December issue of Vegan Life magazine. As soon as I laid eyes on the picture below, I couldn’t wait to try it out. I love jacket sweet potatoes and dhal, but I’d never have thought of putting the two together. Genius!

It’s really easy to make too. I did tweak the original recipe a little, adjusting the cooking time and recipe quantities, and also switching a few ingredients based on what I had available, but the resulting dish looks pretty similar to the original don’t you think? Lucien can’t bear fresh coriander so I used baby spinach instead, which worked perfectly in the filling and as a garnish too.

I know pomegranate seeds can be expensive but they are definitely worth adding if you can find them at a good price. In my experience, they tend to be cheaper in independent grocer shops compared to supermarkets. Last time I purchased them, I managed to get 3 for £1 at a grocers in Trowbridge.

This meal has been a huge hit with the family. We’ve made it three times already and I can see it becoming a staple in our house. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Stay warm everyone!

  1. I love sweet potatoes and I love dahl – but would never have thought to put them together! These look so yummy and I bet the pomegranate just makes it pop. Thanks for sharing 🙂
