    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Line a baking tray with foil; grease the foil with oil or cooking spray.

    3. Combine vanilla bean, scraped seeds and olive oil in a small saucepan over very low heat. Warm the oil until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool, about 5 minutes.
    4. Slice sweet potato and apple into using a spiraliser. Place in a large bowl.
    5. Whisk 2 tablespoons olive oil, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and ginger together in a small bowl. Drizzle over sweet potato and apple; toss well to coat.
    6. Spread sweet potato and apple in an even layer on the prepared baking tray.
    7. Bake in the preheated oven, turning once, until golden, about 10 minutes. Increase oven temperature to220 C / Gas 7. Roast until ends of sweet potato start to brown and toast, 5 to 10 minutes more.
