Glazed sweet potatoes are delicious as a warming winter side to an Asian inspired meal or as an interesting twist to the classic roast vegetable.
Try them in salads for a warm tasty touch, eaten cold at picnics or as a simple snack.
800g (3 medium) sweet potato, peeled
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons sweet plum sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
¼ teaspoon dried chilli flakes
2 tablespoons white sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan forced) and 2 baking trays with foil. Cut sweet potato into 8 length ways.
In a large bowl toss together the sweet potato and oil. Season and bake for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile in a bowl mix together the plum and soy sauce and fold through the chilli.
After 10 minutes take the sweet potato out of the oven and brush with the marinade. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake for another 15 minutes, or until the sweet potato is crisp and golden.
