DON’T peel your kumara. Simply wash thoroughly and slice. It’s much easier than peeling them, they taste great cooked with the skin on and add great colour to the dish.
Feature just one of the colours or serve all three as a medley of colours, textures and tastes.
Make kumara wedges really different by using all three varieties, red, gold and orange kumara and see how great the different colours look served together.
Encourage them to buy and eat kumara. Kept in the pantry (the flat won’t even need a fridge) it will last a very, very long time, retain all its natural goodness and be delicious to eat.
