For Sweet Potato Croutons you will need:

  • 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon of mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of oregano
  • Some cooking oil

First you should take a baking tray and spread the almonds out before drizzling with syrup and oil. Next place under a grill at medium heat until the almonds have a slightly brown appearance. Once this has been achieved, remove the almonds from the grill and put to one side so that they may cool off. Next slice the sweet potatoes into cubes. Once this is done place the cubes into a bowl with the spices and mix well.

Next place the contents onto a baking tray, having first placed cooking foil on top of the tray's surface, and drizzle some oil over the potatoes.
