ways to cook it well - go!!!
not to yam it up.
Sweet potatoes - lovely.
The bestest way
Peel and cut into small chunks, boil for 5 minutes, drain, mash with fork adding butter and a little milk. I like to add ginger to it sometimes too
I cut it into like sugarcube sized cunks for quickness
in a little olive oil.
At 400 (dunno what gas mark that is tho)
the skin will get all crisp and nice!
cut up potatoe in to small-ish pieces. Boil for approx. 15 minutes. Then mash with a masher. Add milk, butter and whatever to taste.
you can mix it with swede and normal potatoes too if you've only got one. Then olive oil and lots of freshly ground pepper.
They're near-on impossible to roast properly though :(
On Ready, Steady, Cook today, they made some sweet potato chips, with white Stilton on top to balance out the sweetness. Don't fry them too quickly though or they won't crisp up! The over-excited New Zealand girl loved them.
Rub with a bit of oil, put in the oven for about an hour or so.
Or cube, mash, add flakes of smoked mackerill and chilli flakes. Make into fish cakes and shallow fry til brown.
Those fish cakes sound awesome! I'll try that tomorrow
we bbq-ed (in foil) some at tapestry festival last weekend.
They were fucking amazing
we put it in the mircrowave for 10mins then in the oven with the rest of roasted vegetables.
but, the best soup ever:
liquidise it after it's all cooked. Amazing.
I'm totally going to make you some.
All of my opinions are based on what I think things will be like before trying them. Kate Nash's album: shite. Unbrella by Rihanna - probably alright. Croissants: flaky and minging. Butternut Squash: rancid.
and I could probably make you like butternut squash.
Make a curry by boiling sweet potatoes and butternut squash up until they are soft. YUM!
in Theo's recipe.
there are also aubergines in said curry and various sauces and shizzle.
I have no idea. I was disagreeing that it had to have meat in to be a curry, not that what I was suggesting was what made a curry a curry.
A subtle but important point.
I don't care though. I'm not properly Indian, and I care not for authenticity. I want meat in everything.
P.S. Shrimp == meat.
but roast is the word
but not those sweet potatoes, they are for roasting
you won't regret it.
ugh I hate sweet potatoes
after skinning and cutting into chunks.
oven at 180 until they're soft, 40 mins or so.
Am I somehow cooking sweet potatoes wrong? Is there some way of avoiding that weird cotton woolly texture that makes me upset just thinking about it, or are they supposed to be like that?
