Serves: 4 

  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and halved crosswise

  • 55g butter
  • 9 fresh sage leaves
  • salt to taste

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:9min  ›  Ready in:19min 

  1. Slice sweet potato into spaghetti-like ribbons with a spiraliser.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Add sweet potato ribbons; cook, stirring often and adding more oil to prevent sticking, until starting to soften, 6 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Heat butter in the same pan until melted and foaming, about 1 minute. Add sage leaves; swirl until butter is a rich caramel colour and leaves are crisp and dark green, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove sage leaves from the butter. Add sweet potato; stir to coat well.
  4. Season sweet potato with salt and garnish with crisp sage leaves.
