Caramelised Sweet Potatoes

Caramellised Sweet Potatoes

This is a delicious dish – it can be a side dish or, as I like to do, eat it as a mid afternoon snack! Pretty healthy (as much as butter and some sugar can be – everything in moderation, right?) and they are definitely delicious. You can make this same recipe with carrots or pumpkins such as Butternut or Jap.

This is a great dish for Thanksgiving, if you celebrate that US festival. Other Thanksgiving recipes are here.

Caramelised Sweet Potatoes

ingredients
700g sweet potatoes, peeled
25g butter
70g caster sugar
salt to taste

method
Steam or gently boil the sweet potatoes until almost cooked but  not mushy. If you like, you can cook small sweet potatoes whole then quarter them lengthwise, or cut them into large chunks before cooking. Small chunks also work well.

Melt butter in a frying pan. Add the sweet potatoes and sprinkle with some sugar. Turn them over to coat with butter and sugar on each side.

Cook on both sides until a crunchy crust forms – about 5 – 7 minutes.

Sprinkle with salt. Serve and enjoy!

recipe notes
Use this technique for pumpkin/squash as well e.g. Butternut and Jap pumpkins. It will also work with carrots.

I sprinkled the sweet potato with some Roast Vegetables Salt, a gift for my birthday that adds wonderful additional flavours.
