bron, what the heck's a kumara (besides some kind of sweet potato, I assume)?

Thanks Ange, they really are yummy and full of textures too!

Oh I know Bea, so much on my list too! Sigh...hehehe
Thank you!

Rob, kumara is simply the New Zealand name for any sweet potatoes.
It's from the native Maori language, they introduced sweet potatoes to NZ from Asia before Europeans arrived here.
Although I think the sweet potatoes we grow now and see in the shops are more akin to the American varieties.
We have 3 main types; red kumara (which I used above), gold kumara and orange kumara. For more check out http://www.kumara.co.nz

Thanks so much Debbie,
Wow! you read all my posts?! So glad you enjoyed it!!

What a beautiful looking appetising dish, sweet potatoes or kumara as you refer to them are a miracle vegetable.

Thank you Gastrochick, sweet potatoes sure are a hero food!

Thanks Dianka,

[...] After all Pumpkins are a divine food. Much like Kumara they’re what I would call a hero food, being full of fibre, Vitamin A (Beta Carotene) and Vitamin C. Besides all this, pumpkins are cheap as chips and there is so much you can do with them. [...]

Hi Bron
Inspired by your recipe I made a variation of these last night for dinner and they were superb. Missing were spring onion, celery and brazils which I replaced with red onion, parsley and fresh walnuts. The herbs and nuts were lovely combination with the sweetness of the kumara. Your gorgeous photographs are amazing. Thanks for the inspiration.
