The Messy Cook

Serves: 2 

  • 2 sweet potatoes, unpeeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed
  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Place the sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with water. Bring to the boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Allow to cool, then slice each sweet potato into wedges. Arrange wedges on a baking tray.
  2. Preheat an oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
  3. Brush the sweet potato wedges with olive oil, and lightly season with salt and pepper. Combine sea salt, lime zest, chilli powder, paprika and dried chilli flakes in a small bowl.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on all sides, about 20 minutes. Plate and sprinkle with the seasoning mixture and fresh coriander immediately.
