“This is a great vegetarian slice. Made with sweet potato (aka kumera). A regular onion is called for in this recipe- any onion will do. It travels well for picnics and is firm enough to be eaten with your hands. Its great warm or cold. Check that the pesto and yogurt used are gluten free if you require a gluten free diet”
