caramelised sweet potato

Caramelised Sweet Potato


  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • sesame seeds to garnish

Dipping Sauce

  • juice of half a lemon
  • 2 teaspoons of maple syrup


  • Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F). Peal then slice sweet potato into thin wedges; add to a roasting pan big enough so the slices are in a single layer. Toss with olive oil and bake for about 30 minutes. (The time really depends on how thickly you have made the slices so check them often)
  • For the dipping sauce, place ingredients into a small saucepan and heat to dissolve the maple. Once the wedges are golden, drizzle with the syrup (reserving some for your little ones to dip into) and garnish with sesame seeds


If you don't fancy the charred bits on the ends - slice them more like a chip shape :)
