Ever since I overcame my prejudices about buying pre-chopped fruit and veg, my cooking life has got a lot simpler. And you should know that in Italian markets, storeholders regularly sell peeled and prepared vegetables bagged up to make their customers' life easier.
These squash and sweet potato dice certainly work for me; a quarter of an hour's bubbling with some stock and some spice, and sweet succour is to hand. Sometimes you are not in the mood to wait.
