Week 3: Sweet potato mash with chilli

Story location: Home / food_and_drink / recipe_a_week /

We tried this recipe 2 different ways. The first time used boiled sweet potatoes:

2 sweet potatoes, diced and boiled until a knife goes in with little resistance. Mash, mixing in a few drops of chilli sauce. The sauce we used was Encona Original Hot Pepper Sauce which is a mixture of habañero and scotch bonnet chillies. It gives a sweet/spicy kick to a recipe.

For the second version we roasted the sweet potato instead of boiling.

  • cut 2 sweet potatoes into 1 inch chunks and cook for 30 minutes at gas mark 6.

  • finely chop 1 red onion and gently fry until it goes soft. Add 1 crushed garlic clove and cook for a few more minutes.

  • when the potatoes are soft, mash them. Adding the onion and garlic.

  • Mix in a splash of chilli sauce.

Serves 2, and counts as 1 portion of veg.
