Sweet Sweet Potato Wedges

So nice they named ’em twice, these sweet potato wedges are pretty yummy, and go great with a veggie burger.

sweet sweet potato wedges

1 sweet potato, skin on
1 tsp crushed garlic (approx 2-3 cloves)
1 tsp hot English mustard (the kind with seeds in)
1 tsp honey
3 tbsp olive oil
salt, to season

Heat oven to 230C. Cut the sweet potato into wedges. Mix the garlic, mustard, honey and olive oil in a large bowl. Add wedges and toss until coated completely.

Lightly grease an oven proof dish with olive oil to stop wedges sticking. Add coated sweet potato, sprinkle with salt, then cook in hot oven for 8 minutes. Remove and toss wedges to prevent burning, then cook for a further 8 minutes.

Remove when brown and soft and eat whilst hot.

NB: One sweet potato makes enough for one person. To cook for more simply adjust the amounts accordingly.

  1. you use honey? no big deal just everyone has their own idea about it. i don’t use it but once in awhile i will eat a granola with it in it, only if i am craving granola and can’t find one with agave. why don’t i simply make my own granola, you ask? because i make enough crap! (: have a happy tuesday!

    • I do do the honey thing, but generally only during summer as a home remedy for hayfever. Small doses of the local pollen can really help alleviate the symptoms. But I know people have different opinions on the matter. I do do a lot of stuff with agave too, but that’s more about avoiding refined sugar.
