Alice the Elephant's Sweet Cubes

Roasted sweet potato and pepper cubes

Makes 4 to 6 servings
Bright colours and sweet flavours make this vegetable side dish perfect to enjoy hot, warm or cold. Try to cube the potatoes similar in size to cook evenly. Just less than 2.5 cm (1 inch) is a great size for small and big kid hands if they want to nibble on them with their hands. Easy to pick up and enjoy!
