  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4. Prick the sweet potatoes all over with a fork and microwave for 10 minutes on full power. Transfer to a baking tray, mist all over with cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, mist a large, heavy-based nonstick pan with cooking spray. Brown the mince over a medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Mist the pan with more cooking spray and cook the onion and peppers for 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the garlic, paprika, cumin and chilli flakes, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  4. Return the mince to the pan along with the chickpeas, chopped tomatoes and oregano, and stir to combine. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chickpeas are tender.
  5. To serve, split the sweet potatoes in half, spoon over the chilli and top with the chopped parsley.
