The roasted squash and sweet potato in this taco recipe are so satisfying you won't miss the meat. Orange and yellow vegetables are rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant that helps you to have beautiful, healthy, glowing skin! Avocados are a source of vitamins E and A, which are also great for our skin. Although I have left the onions raw in this recipe, you could toss them together with the squash and potato for a sweeter, milder flavour.
Ingredients
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and diced
  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika

Instructions
  1. Toss the squash and sweet potato with the olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, paprika and chili powder.
