1

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/180ºC fan-forced.

2

Coat the sweet potato with some olive oil and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Spread out the sweet potato evenly on a baking tray and put into the oven for 20 minutes, or until soft and golden brown.

3

In a pot, bring the water to the boil and dissolve the vegetable stock powder. Leave the pot on a low heat to keep it warm.

4

Heat the butter and oil in a pan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, chilli, and bacon and cook for about 4-5 minutes or until the onion softens and the bacon has coloured. Add the arborio rice and cook for a further 1 minute. Add half of the white wine and a ladle of stock to the pan and stir until the rice has absorbed all of the liquid, add the remaining wine and another ladle of stock and continue this process until the rice is al dente.

5

Stir the sweet potato into the rice and then distribute evenly between bowls. Garnish with some parsley, a squeeze of lemon and a good grating of parmesan. Did you know? Onion has been grown in Egypt for over 5000 years and was regarded as a symbol of the universe in the ancient world.
