Ingredients

Sweet Potatoes

  • 4 sweet potatoes different colours if possible
  • 30 g butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon ground
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • salt
  • coriander leaf garnish
  • lime wedge garnish

Aioli

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 tbsp sriracha
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove crushed

Instructions

Aioli

  • Beat eggs, lemon juice, crushed garlic & mustard together in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add salt & pepper.
  • Slowly add oil and continue to beat until a mayonnaise like thickness.
  • Add sriracha & honey and continue to beat, this will thin it out a little which will make it easier to pour.

Sweet Potatoes

  • Cut potatoes into wedges and lay out on a baking tray. Make sure they are cut evenly so they cook correctly
  • Heat butter in sauce pan until brown & frothy. This is called brown butter but more on that later. Stir in sugar, salt & cinnamon until dissolved.
  • In large mixing bowl coat potatoes and butter mixture. Using tongs as the butter will be very hot
  • Place on a baking tray and bake for 30 mins @ 200c, turning once.
  • Once cooked, remove to a serving plate/tray and drizzle with aioli. Top with coriander leaves and a wedge of lime.

Tips/Tricks

  • to save time you can use shop bought aioli/mayo but trust me, once you try this honey sriracha one you will understand why sometimes you just can't beat homemade
