BAKED SWEET POTATOES (MEDIUM & LARGE BOXES ONLY)

Infused with fresh rosemary & served with Aioli's Truffle Aioli 

These are very simple to make and will add some sweet deliciousness to your feast table. This recipe can be done in the oven or on the braai! It’s up to you.

CHEF’S TIP: 

“Follow the same method for the braai (ensuring the sweet potatoes are very well wrapped in tinfoil), and simply cook until soft to touch. The best  way to see if they are cooked is to poke a small pointed knife in and if there is no resistance, then they are ready.” – Chef Ollie Swart of Aioli.

Recipe

  • Rinse and dry the sweet potatoes.
  • Tear up some tinfoil (one piece per sweet potato to wrap up). Place a sweet potato in the centre of each piece (shiny side in), coat each sweet potato with some oil, season well, and add a few picked rosemary leaves to each parcel. Wrap up in tinfoil until completely covered. Repeat until all are done.

NOTE: The above steps can be done ahead of time.

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C.
  • Roast the sweet potatoes for 60-80 minutes or until soft to touch.
  • Serve on your feast table hot – straight out of the oven, or open up the parcel, cut a cross into each sweet potato and open it up like you would a baked potato. Top with a dollop of Aioli’s Truffle Aioli, and a grind of salt and black pepper.
