  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Rub the sweet potatoes with the oil and sprinkle all over with the sage, chilli flakes and cumin seeds; season.

  2. Put onto a baking tray and roast for 40-50 mins until tender. Set aside to cool for 5 mins. 

  3. Meanwhile, to make the relish, mix together the cranberry sauce, diced onion, sliced chilli and lime juice. Season and chill for at least 10 mins to marinate the flavours.

  4. About 10 mins before the sweet potatoes are cooked, put the sage leaves and walnuts onto a baking tray and place in the oven to toast. Cook for 5-8 mins until the sage is crispy. 

  5. Meanwhile, simmer the Tenderstem broccoli in simmering water for 5-8 mins until tender. 

  6. Split the sweet potatoes down the middle and fill with the mashed avocado. Spoon over the relish and crumble over the toasted walnuts. Top with crisp sage leaves before serving and serve with the broccoli.
