Sweet Potato, Roasted Peppers and Feta Cheese Salad, Topped with a Gooey Poached Egg

This recipe is great for a meatless Monday, and although it’s a salad and free of any meat, its delicious and surprisingly filling. I say surprisingly, as salads have a reputation of for being a light meal, but after eating a bowl-full of this delight I felt the need to go for a walk, as I was too full to sit down and fester! So not only is it relatively healthy but also inspires light exercise – the perfect dinner for a Monday night after an indulgent weekend!

    A salad that I can prepare… without salad 🙂 I hate leaves and it usually reduces greatly the possibilities of refreshing meals for Summer (there is just so much greek salad or panzanella you can eat!). Great blog by the way!
