Baked sweet potato salad with chilli, coriander and tamari

This vibrantly coloured and flavoursome salad would make the perfect addition to your festive feast this Christmas. 

Ingredients

  • 10 small sweet potatoes about 200g each
  • 100 g unsalted peanuts
  • 4 limes
  • 4 tbsp tamari
  • 4 red chillies finely chopped
  • bunch coriander leaves picked
  • bunch mint leaves picked

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6. Rinse and dry the sweet potatoes, then prick them with a fork, rub them with a little salt and place on a tray. Roast for 30-40 minutes, until soft throughout.
  2. Meanwhile, tip the peanuts onto a baking tray; roast for 5-7 minutes, until golden. Set aside to cool, then smash up a little in a pestle and mortar.
  3. Grate the zest of 2 limes into a bowl and squeeze in the juice of all 4 limes. Add the tamari and ½ the chilli; mix well. Once the sweet potatoes are cooked through (you can keep them warm in a low oven until you are ready to eat), chop them into pieces and put on a platter. Pour over the lime and tamari dressing, turning the pieces in the dressing, then top with the herbs, peanuts and the remaining chilli.
