    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas mark 5. Line a large baking dish with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray. Toss the sweet potatoes in the baking dish with half the oil to coat, then spread in an even layer. Roast until tender and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
    2. Whisk the remaining oil, lemon juice, orange juice, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Taste dressing and add 1 teaspoon lemon juice, if desired.
    3. Toss warm sweet potatoes and dressing in a serving bowl. Add rocket, orange segments, onion and raisins. Toss to combine.


    On average, one medium sweet potato provides more than 100 per cent of the Recommended Dietary Intake (RDI) for vitamin A and about 80 per cent of the RDI for vitamin C.
